I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very little commute traffic. Very low expectations on education and intelligence for management. You can basically go to a crappy school and make decent money here. Only in Lancaster would this happen.

Cons

The company is headquartered in Lancaster, PA and most people have the small town mentality which has become part of the culture here . Gossip mill where everyone is concerned about each other's personal lives.

Employees here are happy making $40-50k a year and think they are "lucky" to have that salary. Once I got out of Circle A and moved to a major city to work for a Fortune 500, I saw that a business minded corporation operates. There is no drive for success here.

    Good company but requires a lot out of its employees. Definitely not for slackers

    Pros

    You get good experience. The people are warm and caring.

    Cons

    Long hours. Always on feel like you have to be available all the time. They've outsourced some finance and IT functions and it makes life frustrating when you have to deal with a vendor or have an IT issue.
