    Current Employee - Plant Controller in Memphis, TN

    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Depending on your role the work-lift balance can be either good or bad. Jobs at HQ in Toledo are probably worse for that than at a plant or in the field. Pay levels are fair, but there is a need to negotiate that and benefits are OK.

    Cons

    Systems are not top notch and implementation of new ones is done very poorly. As mentioned work-life balance at HQ is not great for many roles. Union environment at some facilities can make life difficult when it comes to asking for things to get completed, but most folks are flexibile. Lots of old-timers holding on to the way things were need to get with the program and realize the world has changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make note of all of the people leaving the company, there is a reason. Clarify pay system for everyone so that transparency can help those that don't get a raise annually or even every other year.

    I worked at Owens Corning full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Conservative midwest company that does not take risks
    World class technology, systems and people
    Financially sound in attractive industry structures
    Will be around for another 60 years

    Cons

    Constantly reshuffles the deck. Believes that org structure changes are good for the business and they constantly move people around.
    Too many vice-presidents, especially HR.
    CEO is well liked but he hires poorly. He likes to be the smartest guy in the room.
    Very political company. You need to be constantly on guard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop reorganizing the company every 18-24 months.
    Keep the focus on safety as leadership in this area has been exceptional.
    Help the employees to feel appreciated. Everyone is normally on edge waiting for the next restructuring. Change can be healthy but don't under-estimate the impact on productivity
