    I worked at GAF full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training and advancement opportunities. Professional management style that encourages self development and growth. Good balance of time spent between office doing paper work and plant floor troubleshooting process issues. You're not stuck behind a desk all day. Lot's of opportunities to cross train with other departments and roles at smaller plants.

    Cons

    Some work assignments can become quite monotonous in a manufacturing environment.

    Pros

    Pay was great. Boss was amazing. Nice camaraderie in the offices.

    Cons

    GAF instigated a hostile takeover of ELK, and took down some really good people to replace with their own employees, paying them less.
