    Pros

    I actually worked at Armstrong for 28 years, moving from administrative position into Marketing and Management. It truly was a great company to work for. Good compensation and great benefits.

    Cons

    Not just Armstrong but the corporate environment across the board has evolved (in somewhat of a negative way) over the years. What once was a very employee-focused company with tangible access to leadership to voice concerns is no longer.

    I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with everyone on the floor. Very friendly, helpful. Definitely a since of family.

    Cons

    Management at the plant level does not know what they are doing. They are wrapped up in the internal "politics" verses actually running the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make assumptions about what's actually going on. Listen to people who come to you with suggestion but then verify what they are saying before jumping into action.

    I have been working at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good place to work. the people are amazing. we know that we are part of a team, this helps a lot. Sometimes we all take break together and talk about our feelings

    Cons

    its too hot in the plant. we have to have lots of coolers around just to cool us down in the summer, the winters are much better but even then its still too hot

    Advice to Management

    I wish management would come around more often and listen to what is going on in the real world of workers. I do believe that the management team would lean more if they would listen

    Management needs to focus on hiring the right people for each unique territory. Also, reassess compensation.

    I have been working at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As the company splits into two separate companies, there are a lot of positions being created.

    Cons

    No assurance that when the dust settles, all these new positions will be needed going forward.

    Advice to Management

    Stop over-communicating and focus on the main strategy and how employees play a role in it through split and beyond.

    Pros

    Provide training to stay current but experts professional level skills on hire. Few entry level positions.

    Cons

    Company is splitting and although they are hiring, nobody is sure how it will all work out and if all the positions will really be needed under the new structure of two separate companies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees regarding the split.

    Consider adapting more tech tools. Keep up the team environment!
