I have been working at Owens Corning full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Lots of seasoned employees that are willing to share their experience. Also the world headquarters is a nice facility. Heavy commitment to employee safety.

Cons

Difficult to affect change as seasoned employees have a hard time seeing a different path. Headquarters parking lot is the longest lot ever -- arrive after 8 AM and it takes 10 minutes to get inside. Reorganizes constantly. Heavily reliance on outsourcing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the matrix reporting to a simple org chart. Look for automation in your processes and don't rely so much on outside contractors -- you have people who can actually do the work.

    I worked at Owens Corning full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great facility. Good brand. Friendly people. Lots of networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Constant meetings and discussions. No real actions and decisions be makde or taken. Lack of ownership due to matrix organizations. Heavily focus on "high quality" presentations and conversations, but not enough accountability. CEO and senior management team are in a small group and rarely engage with mid/ low-level people. CEO and senior management team are bright and smart, and they will make sure you know that when meeting with them. Overall, a company rides with the housing market, but doesn't have the culture and strategy to maximumize the opportunities given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Embrace the challenges and take bold moves to drive the growth
    2. Do more with less talking and meeitngs
