I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very little commute traffic. Very low expectations on education and intelligence for management. You can basically go to a crappy school and make decent money here. Only in Lancaster would this happen.

Cons

The company is headquartered in Lancaster, PA and most people have the small town mentality which has become part of the culture here . Gossip mill where everyone is concerned about each other's personal lives.

Employees here are happy making $40-50k a year and think they are "lucky" to have that salary. Once I got out of Circle A and moved to a major city to work for a Fortune 500, I saw that a business minded corporation operates. There is no drive for success here.

    I worked at Armstrong World Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, smart people at project team and plant floor level

    Cons

    Management can't seem to do what they are highly paid to do - get it together and make things happen . . . even in a down economy!

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes. You are loosing market share to third tier players in the market. Stop being so arrogant and listen to the "valued" employees you still have . . . but are loosing fast.
