I worked at Owens Corning

Pros

Good quality products, but over priced.

Cons

A management culture that is best defined as "spineless" - you bring them solutions to problems you are experiencing in the field, and it goes NOWHERE. You'll find that the people who work at corporate have this air of superiority and ARROGANCE which summarizes and adds to the overall dysfunction of this company. The ones who survive with this group are soulless individuals who's main personality trait is only looking out for number one... so watch your back. If you decide to sell for this outfit, I can promise you that you'll think back to this post after 6 months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lose the arrogance, and react to the damage that is being created by your internal staff. The last time I looked you were losing some very talented individuals by the droves, and there are reasons they are leaving. Redefine the word "leadership"....this should not include anything remotely resembling a good ol' boy network.

    Strong company, unfortuneately tied to construction cycles.

    Pros

    Owens Corning has a long history of innovation in the insulation and building materials industry. The company is working to diversify with a greater presence in glass fiber reinforcements.

    Cons

    A tough place during a contraction in the market. The company did the right things to survive the downturn, but had to lose lots of valuable people in the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thaman is a genuis, and is making great business decisions. Emphasizing the positive, helping employees and leaders at all levels, will insure that the vision is maintained top to bottom.
