    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    USG 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about the little guys who actually do the work.

    I have been working at USG full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is GREAT! Benefits are great! Two weeks vacation after a year (if you take advantage of buying a week as offered). Talk of going to 4 shifts that would swing, 12 hour shifts, 3 days on/4 days off then 4 days on/ 3 days off. Would then have every other weekend off! Would work half a year. Schedule set for a year ahead of time.

    Cons

    No weekends off. Sometimes work 11-17 days straight (with a day off here and there). Tough on family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to the 4 shifts swing. The set schedules would be a HUGE moral builder with employees!!!
