Pros

USG, for engineers in particular, provides a rewarding and challenging work environment. Strong focus on safety and employee well-being, and freedom to be creative make it very enjoyable.

Cons

Slow to move on the newest technologies. Reluctant to explore different, cutting edge processes for making products.

Advice to Management

Excellent move by breaking up the business units.
