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

    Pros

    Amazing culture. Development is highly prioritized. Challenging, yet extremely rewarding. Innovative- future thinking. Incredible place to work. Highly recommend and I often recruit every chance I get.

    Cons

    None. It's an organization that focuses on development and enables teams to achieve their goals. We own our success.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Pella full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Pella Corporation for 8 years and have loved working for this company. They not only empower us to be extraordinary but you have the ability to create your own path of success. With drive and passion the sky is the limit with this company. Working in National Accounts my territory becomes my own business and I have the ability to drive my own success with the knowledge of my area. Working for a family owned company shows in all they do, where your teammates not on become friends but they become family. 8 years in and still loving it!

    Cons

    Working in National Accounts you don't have an office you go to but the great things is everyone is just a call away. You may think you are on an island but you are not and so many people there to assist in every way.

    Pros

    At Pella Corporation, you don't feel like a number. Your professional and personal growth matter. You are enabled to impact the business where continuous improvement ideas are not only allowed, but encouraged and supported. Pella rewards their employees with yearly bonuses and 401K contributions that do not require matching funds from you! I've been here nearly 15 years and haven't regretted my decision to come to Pella once.

    Cons

    Pella Iowa is a small town.
