    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My co-workers were great below management. Benefits decent. Pay decent. Not much else to say. Lots of people there one day and gone the next.

    Cons

    Job is not stable. People treated differently. No training. Very cliquey. If you don't fit in your gone. No warning. If you value job security don't bother.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing out young people or their won't be a company left.

    Pros

    Some of the most amazing people to work with. Everyone is always will to pitch in, very team environment. Very safety oriented organization.

    Cons

    Strategic plan seems to be confused, organization is getting smaller with the sale of all EMEA and Asian assets. Plants seem to be under disarray.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick with it.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very thoughtful about employees, policies that are pro-employee, lost of history available from other employees,

    Cons

    No drive, no killer instinct, dont give employee ownership of stock.... its really a pension fund that runs a company, rather then the other way around...

    Advice to Management

    try to get employees with 50 years of experience to think like its 2020 rather than 1970

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Armstrong World Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some have opportunity to work from. My boss was great. Coworkers are fun. Campus is beautiful

    Cons

    Pay is VERY low for the amount of work. Overtime must be approved in advance. 1 sick day given a year. Only 10 vacation days. The quantity and complexity of job is not recognized or respected by other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to manage their own time. Give them the chance to work in a way that is optimal to them without restraint; if they prove they can still produce and get work done on time - do not make them conform to overly rigid and corporate standards, or at least to a minimum of those standards.
