    I worked at Windsor Windows & Doors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent quality products at industry competitive prices.

    Cons

    Some in senior management are excellent leaders, others are old-fashioned "managers" (all sticks, no carrots).

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate all senior staff for proper Leadership skills and ability to lead from in front, have them ask what they can do to help and to motivate subordinates, rather than the motto of "the floggings will continue until morale improves".

    I worked at Windsor Windows & Doors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Windsor is a small, tightly run ship which is positioning themselves for growth and a bright future.

    Cons

    Lack of proper R&D prioritization, automation on the factory floor and issues with shipping policies.

    Advice to Management

    The R&D dept is anemic and needs more minds before anything else. The head of R&D should not be doing shop drawings for jobs in Minnesota or anywhere.

    Pros

    Good pay, keeps you busy

    Cons

    A lot of employees that come in and out of this company is due to attendance issues and following the rules as far as following designated lunch times & break times. If you cant follow rules and don't show up on time this is not a job for you. Everything else is easy. It's a job your everyday effort is your guideline.

    Pros

    Great place and people to work with. Relaxed and clean atmosphere. Employer relay cares about safety of the people and quality of their products. Monthly meetings are held to show support and thanks to employees, small gifts/bonuses provided too.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest. Room to grow in the company can start to seem limited as there are only so many different positions you can go with if moving up. Overall not bad place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Management already respects the workers on the highest scale I've seen, and are friendly and helpful. I would not change that.
