Pros

The people at OC are very fair and honest. They encourage you to train for future jobs that you may be interested in. Although the salary was not the best I felt like I was able to make up for it with there bonus program. The leadership team often does have there employees in mind an tries to listen to there concerns when they arise. I would recommend Owens Corning to anyone that is looking for a stable career with a fortune 500 company that is growing in both building materials and green products. It was a great place to work.

Cons

Often times it takes to much time to get things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure to diversify your mid-management team.

    Pros

    The way most of the job areas divided you're almost forced to work in a teaming environment vs. the individual float or sink mentality. There’s plenty of projects going on to get some experience or specialty in a certain area for a couple of years. Though the culture seems to be in a middle of a change, it’s still a relationship driven company which benefits if you can get into it quickly. Overall headquarter facility has a good physical work environment.

    Cons

    Choose wisely before accepting an offer from this company. The pay is below market value, and health care benefits can be a near joke. The generation gap within the company spawns a lot of resistance to trying anything new with classic “it’s been done for x years” speeches. Be cautious of pigeonholing or taking on projects too far from the mainstream. You will quickly get stuck or have a long uphill trek to justify. Toledo, a rust belt city, where the main office is can be a hard place to live in especially if you’re not from the area or Mid-West.

    Look at the big picture. You can do worse, but you can do better too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about how you’re trying to develop and keep people when you’re restructuring while adding more layers of management. Pick an objective and run with it instead of pausing, reworking, and trying to figure out one time use solutions the company bought which is all hinder some.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits Good people to work with

    Toledo location is superb. It is a great place to learn new experiences and skills to transfer to other organziations

    Cons

    Adverse to promoting males over age 50 and not much better for women

    Although 401K is benchmark the Healthcare leads a lot to be desired

    Sr mgmt needs to lead by example whether it relates to spending money to performance reviews

    There is much waste at Owens Corning. If they simply eliminated use of power point an unbelievable number of hours would be freed up to work on important stuff

    Long walk from parking lot!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at data for male over age 50 promoting from existing employees to band 3 Identify and address poor senior managers
