    I have been working at USG full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good company for growth.
    Safety is most important.
    Quarterly Bonuses.
    Friendly Coworkers.
    Recently Rebranded itself to excel.
    Feeds you quite well.

    Cons

    Matching Policy isn't very good, only 10 cents on the dollar.
    Not really diverse for engineering positions and up.
    Can't compete with Oil and Gas Salaries, but decent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to become more diverse when hiring. All in all the company is going in the right direction.

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

    I worked at USG full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
