    I worked at USG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked with some of the best people ever in this company, free with knowledge sharing, professional in their fields, and tons of fun socially.

    Cons

    They over-reacted to Sarbanes Oxley and locked the company down so tight with process that they squelched creativity. Micro-management abounds. The bad economy creates a tense atmosphere with annual layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could get a lot more out of your employees if you let go of the reins.

    I worked at USG full-time

    Pros

    The people and networking experiences made USG Corp great. If you put yourself out there, managers, directors, VP's, etc. are available to meet and discuss career goals, direction....even if you don't work in that department or business unit. When the housing market rebounds, USG environment should improve.

    Cons

    Many layoffs and minimal (one) merit increases during the downturn. USG has a new strategy and the attitude of Sr. Mgmt is, "get on board or get out." Subsequently, individuals are hesistant to give an opinion or their thoughts on the new ideas. I believe HR is often inept and doesn't always have the back of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When business picks up for USG, reward the employees that stuck around. Get back to promoting from within and giving training opportunities for employees to move around.
