I have been working at Johns Manville

Pros

I have had 4 managers in 4 years. Only 1 of the 4 did not support personal and professional growth and that one only lasted for 6 months. My department is very supportive of work/life balance and we have the choice to work remote as needed.
We have a newly redefined technical ladder which holds great promise

Cons

hard to get level / salary increases. New technical ladder should help those of us who are not interested in management but do lead decisions and projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Having the option to work remote during bad weather or when you have personal situations is a strong ingredient in personnel retention.

Professional development and training have been a low priority in many departments because of the extremely lean work force. A lack of cross-training and passive assistance to individuals for defining and reaching goals has lead to a low salaried retention rate in highly technical support departments.

Support department managers should be trained better to be managers rather than promoted from the ranks and expected to knnow how to manage.
