    I have been working at Pella full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good once you've been at the company for 5 years, the people are fantastic to work with - as a whole a good company but need to work on benefits and adaptability.

    Cons

    Profit Sharing takes two years before getting a payout, and 5 years to be fully vested, vacation starts out low, very slow to change, some managers should not be in their roles but due to their tenure they stay around, and development is typically reserved for only those Pella thinks could be future leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Be more welcoming of change, work on developing all employees, and allow more work from home opportunities
