    I worked at Johns Manville full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The workers in the plant

    Cons

    Too many managers, not enough Leaders.
    Negative consequences to errors.
    Not trying to get better - just staying off corporate radar.
    Persons in manager roles who had little or no experience in how to deal with people or what the position of the people, in there charge actually did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a 180 degree mind set and lose the 1980 mindset.

    Politics reigns supreme, old school technology, extremely conservative culture

    I worked at Johns Manville

    Pros

    Good benefits package with generous consideration when ill and family affairs require working from home.

    Cons

    Like working in a company from the 50's. Boys club all the way. Politics drive promotions. Good employees with strong skills who actively push for improvements and change are soon driven out of the company. Morale is in the gutter. Very little understanding of leading technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You claim you hire the best, yet once you do no listens to their advice. Promotions are based on Politics and going with the flow.
