USG - The Best and Worst Place I Ever Worked.

Non Management (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsGreat People. Great Product. Excellent work life balance (if you are in the right department). A family atmosphere. Located downtown right behind the Metra train station. Pay is OK, not the best, but not the worst. Lots of extra activities, focus groups, lunch and learns, weight loss challenges…things to benefit the employees. Great perks.

ConsUSG rarely gets rid of people who have proven to no longer be valuable to the company. In many departments these "slacker" or OLD heads hold key positions. This is demoralizing to up and comings and doesn't give you the warm an fuzzes about promotions. Career paths are better than previous years, but a long way to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget about the little guys who actually do the work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
