    I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Corporate values, long time company, large part of ceiling tile market.

    Cons

    Plant management could be a case study in bad leadership and leadership failure. If you are on the golf team you can do no wrong. Management goes with whatever good idea they have at the time which is normal at the expense of everyone else. The plant has failed to innovate in the past 3 years, Corporate is looking for lower cost production. The failure to innovate has left Pensacola plant with few options and has set the stage for the plant to “bleed to death”. I give it 5 year or less till the plant shuts down.
    If you like a lack of respect by management and love to hate your job, then Armstrong Pensacola is for you!

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is not a speech. You must inspire the people that work for you, be consistent. Stating because I’m your boss will not motivate your people. Work on your communication. Ensure you are clear about you expectations. Stop trying to feed you ego and Lead. Have some humility.
