    I worked at Armstrong World Industries

    Pros

    Employees are hard working and more than willing to help one another. Everyone I've met is friendly and polite. Flexible hours. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Making ceiling tiles is more interesting and engaging than I'd thought, but at the end of the day it is a ceilings manufacturing company.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great with this company. Allow for a great start to a career. Allow to work from home and Manage your territory. Bonus is paid 2 time a year and allows for you to make up if you missed the target at the beginning of the year.

    Cons

    Heavy on Salary + low on Bonus that based off of a target budget. Budget is high however there are a lot of factors that are figured into a full bonus. The sales should be a salary + commission.

    Advice to Management

    Outside sales should be Salary + Commission.

    I have been working at Armstrong World Industries full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good company that does good work in the community and beyond. Sustainability and safety are key ingredients to their success. There is opportunity for significant longevity at the company - I've never worked at a company where so many people have been here for their entire career - many for 20+, a few for 40+. Armstrong encourages personal and professional growth and works very well with the willing. Prove you're... willing and they will go to the ends of the earth for you!

    Cons

    Sometimes this company gets mired in conformity. This would be a truly stellar place to work if they truly valued differences beyond the basics of race, gender, preference, etc (which they do value greatly). Oh, the amazing things this company could do if they weren't so hooked on everyone fitting into the traditional corporate mold. One example: if you are awesome at your job but your style of dress is off the... beaten path (but still professional enough), you will be met with some resistance. Shouldn't have to work harder than the traditional dresser to prove ability and worth.

    Advice to Management

    They're doing pretty well. I would say just continue to encourage people to express their professional dreams and goals, and help them find ways to get there. ALL people who manage others should be sent through the Essentials of Leadership program. This will help them help their direct reports identify their career aspirations, and train people to have a broader definition of diversity, one that includes life... experience and style. This will combat old school thinking that limits company potential.

    I worked at Armstrong World Industries

    Pros

    I actually worked at Armstrong for 28 years, moving from administrative position into Marketing and Management. It truly was a great company to work for. Good compensation and great benefits.

    Cons

    Not just Armstrong but the corporate environment across the board has evolved (in somewhat of a negative way) over the years. What once was a very employee-focused company with tangible access to leadership to voice concerns is no longer.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with everyone on the floor. Very friendly, helpful. Definitely a since of family.

    Cons

    Management at the plant level does not know what they are doing. They are wrapped up in the internal "politics" verses actually running the plant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make assumptions about what's actually going on. Listen to people who come to you with suggestion but then verify what they are saying before jumping into action.
