    I worked at Owens Corning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Brand recognition looks good on resume. Most people recognize the brand.

    Cons

    Little to no communication to the plants from HQ. You hear nothing from HQ unless it is negative or a new organizational announcement of a new director position being created or some previous rising star getting fired. The entire Toledo entity seems to make government look efficient. Lots of infighting and agendas and since there has been so much cutting over the past few years everyone is complete defensive mode as to not get noticed and only do enough not to get fired. Support groups like Granville spend their time trying to seem important but never being on the hook for any actual decisions as to not get blamed for it. No one is rewarded for ingenuity and any bad news is crushed hard so everyone spends their time weaving tales of half truths. Human resources is a rotating cast of people they hire from outside who spend a few years making things worse then they leave or get fired. Instead of hard choices they put every poor performer on special projects like a software upgrade project (SAP) then rebrand it as a "Customer Experience Transformation" team. Then when that team can't execute even that they just shrug their shoulders and keep on delivering the same results. I was in one of the more established facilities and saw all of this first hand.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter. You know all this stuff but are just hanging around to jump to a better company or hide while you make your six figure salaries. Just google some of the public offer letters to see some of the money these people make and you'll shake your head.
