    Pros

    Nice products with innovative mindset, enjoyed the people I worked with. Good work environment and communications with inside sales and support

    Cons

    Service model needed serious help, many negative impacts in territory due to lack of dealer expectations and lack of training, needed better availability of subcontracted service techs instigated by the company

    Advice to Management

    take a look at companies desired territory manager skill sets and seek technical, consultative sales skills and individuals that are able to generate brand identity through the architectural communities.
    Expect more of your dealers to service the products sold, get rid of 80% of your dealers

    Pros

    Interesting work. Good ownership. You can take pride in the high end product made at this company. their product goes into multi-million dollar homes.

    Cons

    Shaky systems. Poor teamwork. Lack of clear visions. Projects are started and then never completed. Poor quality incoming material makes it difficult to produce a good quality product without extra time and effort.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to production employees. They work with the product every day. Identify bad vendors and work on replacments, their are plenty of suppliers looking for the amount of volume in some products you purchase.

    I worked at Weather Shield Manufacturing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great engineering group, very nice corporate office environment. I had a full-time internship and the learning experience was good for a larger company.

    Cons

    The company is a little old-school and stuffy for a non-metro corporation. I wish I could have had a more well rounded experience while being in school still.

    Advice to Management

    Younger employees value culture, freedom of expression, and the ability to contribute creatively. Take or leave it, it's an untapped resource for any company.
