    I have been working at USG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are more communications than ever before from the executive committee which definitely helps motivate employees. Lately our teams plan to win has created our own company recession recovery which has motivated all employees from senior executives to the operator level. We have seen our first pay raise in some time as promised and looking forward to the future with great faith in our executive leaders.

    Cons

    Some USG location seem slow to adapt to new technology but getting better.
    Still have unrealistic deadlines to meet which stunt project growth due to manpower shortages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the communications and try to speed up the adaptation of new technologies at all plants.

    I have been working at USG

    Pros

    Great people and plenty of room to grow for employees. There are great mentors available in this organization. People respect one another

    Cons

    USG is a company in the extremely competitive wallboard industry. This when added to the current economic situation, salary freezes and constant layoffs makes the company unattractive to young employees and middle tier upwardly mobile staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To better maximize on involuntary severances, aim higher in the organization. Too often, cuts were taken from the lower levels of staff in the organization - the doers. Overtime, all that is left is the delegators who have an excellent track record for fending off new work. Eliminate that layer to bring back innovation
