I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time for less than a year

Pros

Somewhat flexible hours. General freedom in how to approach issues. No micromanagement. Very nice and knowledgeable team lead and senior developer.

Cons

Average wages. Little to no advancement (perhaps mostly economic). Hectic work environment. No cross-department oversight of project development. Little communication between departments that are dependent on each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat this position (product data programmer) as a skilled position to foster specialization and productivity, instead of a test bed for fledgling programmers looking to quickly move on (higher pay, attention of upper management). This is being done somewhat now, but the past effects of this attitude have lead to many current difficulties. Also, projects need greater attention to base design before work is started, forward-looking goals instead of emergency-based responses.

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, sales people are quality people with great personalities.

    Cons

    Very Poor Pay. Got one raise in 6 years, no bonuses or commission in "Sales" regardless of managing a 15+ Million dollar area. Crazy hours and travel at times. Doesn't matter if your good at your job or bad, you will get paid the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have great Sales people working for you, and some great managers. You are going to continue to lose good people if you don't show some sort of appreciation, or goodwill. The 35 dollar "Spiff" bonuses just aren't cutting it. Motivate your associates. There is NO incentive to want to succeed other than personal motivation. For a multi-billion dollar company you waste a lot of money on menial things, rather than taking care of the bread and butter of your income.
