    Memorable

    Safety (Current Employee)
    Amarillo, TX

    ProsGood safety culture from corporate, great people to work with within the plant, friendly environment, good benefits, comparable pay, challenging tasks

    ConsPoor communication, pushes employees into jobs they don't want, poor business management- hire then cut back and lay off, lack of policy enforcement, hard to prmooted from primary employee to salary employee,

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe primary employees you have are very talented. Look to them when trying to promote. Also, work on communication throughout plants, from plant to plant, and from corporate to plant level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company very focused on people development

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people who are very knowledgable and easy to work with. Bosses are very focused on personal development. A lot of opportunity within the company.

    ConsNot many. Working in a plant sometimes demands strange hours. Must be somewhat flexible to work in a plant setting.

    Great culture, awesome people and global exposure.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Toledo, OH

    ProsLeaders continue to challenge you and take you outside your comfort zone to help you develop. The employees are extremely caring and have high work standards. It's easy to stand to behind our products as they truly make the world a better place.

    ConsCompany needs to take more risks and allow employees to fail to help them grow and develop. The pay for performance methodology can get in the way of a good team environment.

    Great work environment, but need to be proactive about own growth and development.

    Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee)
    Toledo, OH

    Pros•Huge focus on health and safety
    •Strong brand recognition
    •Beautiful campus and great community commitment
    •Many growth and development opportunities, but expect to search them out.

    Cons•Not enough training which leads to a lot of miscommunication.
    •Leadership doesn't always focus on big picture

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop relying solely on metrics to paint the picture. Data can be skewed based on who's pulling the numbers. Look more toward your people and customers to better illustrate the story.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Development Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Toledo, OH

    ProsManagement is very focused on your development, and growth. When you have gained the experience in a role, management is receptive to shifting your role. Upper management wants to develop talent internally... Especially if you would intend to remain in the Toledo Ohio area long term.

    ConsWhile very development focused, high structure can mean you wind up in a role you do not desire to be in for a period of time.

    Owens Corning Basement Review

    Franchise Operations (Former Employee)

    ProsOwens Corning basement reviews show that we have an amazing product, and personally marketing directly to consumers was a great learning experience

    ConsThe Basement Finishing System is such a great product and sometimes it's hard to show customers the benefits because other companies tried copying our product

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Basement Finishing division is a small group and the only one within the company that markets directly to consumers, so trying to explain to other divisions what it is that we did, no one understood. Knowledge sharing among divisions would be helpful.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
