I have been working at Johns Manville

Pros

Decent pay structure, benefits are good, very financially stable- the company also recongnizes that you do have a life outside of work...or at least some of us do.

Cons

old school with some of the policies and procedures on the plant level, a keep the workers happy mentality which in turn has caused a ton of entitlement amoungst the hourly associates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on talent development within the lower ranks of the management structure...also known as succession planning.

    I worked at Johns Manville

    Pros

    Great history and tradition. Perceived safety of Berkshire Hathaway family. Opportunities for bringing JM into the 21st century with many of its business practices.

    Cons

    Very conservative both politically and organizationally. New ideas need to be socialized thoroughly before they are accepted. While there's a benefit to being part of the Berkshire Hathaway family, there are financial expectations that need to be met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate the work force on innovation and seek input in a structured way that takes advantage of the good ideas.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fühlt sich an wie eine Familie. Die Leute kümmern sich umeinander. Wettbewerbsfähige Bezahlung. Gute Angebote die für Kunden verlockend sind. Mary Rhinehart als neuen CEO einzustellen war die beste Entscheidung die Berkshire Hathaway machen konnte.

    Feels like being part of a family. People care for each other. Competitive compensation. Great value propositions which are compelling to customers.
    Appointing Mary Rhinehart as the new CEO was the best decision Berkshire Hathaway could have made.

    Cons

    Viel zu US-Bezogen. Nicht präsent in aufkommenden Märkten. Abhängig von Isolation und Überdachungen.

    Too much US focused. Not present in emerging markets. Too dependant on roofing and insulation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Werden Sie weniger vom US-Bau-Zyklus abhängig. Öffnen Sie den Raum in dem Sie agieren. Verbessern sie Ihre Webpräsenz dramatisch und lassen Sie das Konstruktionsgewerbe wissen wie gut Sie sind.

    Get less dependant on the US building cycle. Open up the space you play in. Dramatically improve your web presence and let the construction ecosystem know how good you are.
