It was a fun experience even with us being bought out.

Accounting Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at USG

ProsGreat co-workers who turned out to be friends.
Relaxed atmosphere, we could always have fun even in a stressful environment.

ConsWe were working a lot of Saturdays in a row.
Hours were being cut back.
Threat of layoffs led to scared workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to bring back some of the fun that was there before.
Happier staff leads to better work and less turnover, I believe.
