No loyalty. Sent jobs to India. Care about profits not employees.

Pros

Okay benefits. Good people at plants.

Cons

Too centralized. They have gotten rid of most of the people at the plants who knew what they were doing and were doing the actual work. Zero loyalty to long term employees who have made many sacrifices for the company. Sent most financial work to unqualified people in India who are doing a terrible job and angering vendors, while eliminating 100s of American jobs. Upper management and corporate have cultivated a culture of secrecy, fear and paranoia. Information dissemination to employees whose job are affected is unprofessional and very late and slow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should value employees who have gotten you where you are today instead of replacing them with low paid poorly trained robots from other countries who don't know what they are doing, and then blaming the employees you are eliminating for not making your poorly trained robot's jobs easy enough that they never have to think. You have destroyed what was good about the company. Company name is now ironic.

    Pros

    Decent pay..paid weekly..meet some cool people

    Cons

    Where do i begin..Usg east chicago plant is the worst..in board and jt deparments they hire all LAZY PEOPLE and they do nothing at work for 12 hours.but they try to use the hell out of people who do try to come to work n work. they equipment is old n breaks down all day. Everyday they have the same problems or new ones.makes a 12hour day so hard..they dont care at all..mangement sucks..Hr doesnt care.the formen sit in the office all day on facebook n craiglist. instead of getting the lazy ppl to work.the current supervisor is scary..Sacred of his employees the ppl who dont be working or doing anything all day he dont say anything to them but constatly tells the good workers to do everything..the department manager doesnt care either he runs several departments so he doesnt have time..no life to work balance.then you are told you have to work on a day you was off at the last minute..they pay should be higher to work here considering the equipment is out of date and breaks down all day long..everyone is scared to speak up if you do your a target..i would not try to get anyone to work here. WORST PLACE TO WORK..they treat ppl terrible.they dont train u properly they use to now training is relieving someone for break .something goes wrong that person doesnt even know what too do. they have their favorites..all the ppl who are lazy. i see why ppl who been here 10yrs or more come in and say they quit..this company needs to be fair n hire better ppl also if you are late all the time you wont get fired until you have been late about 30 times they dont stick to the policy. They dont listen to you and they dont care about you bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do you know how the equipment runs in e.c. indiana..probably not huh? The hiring process needs to be more strict..hiring overweight ppl for jobs that reqiure ppl to do heavy lifting and being able to move fast but safetly is not good..and the lazy ppl why do usg keep these ppl who are non productive..someone needs to come out as a undercover boss to see whats going on..secert cameras need to be put up so it can be shown whos here to work and whos not..i dont mind working hard..thats what i come to work to do ..but y should i when the lazy ppl..is patted on the back all the time..REALLY USG REALLY??
