I have been working at Johns Manville full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Stable paycheck, coworkers are professional and courteous.

Cons

Ageism to the extreme. They have tons of older people waiting for retirement and blocking key promotable positions for career-minded individuals. The company is aware of that, but they're bypassing mid-career talent for very young, and denying many good, skilled, middle-aged workers a chance to grow. If you're over 30, chances to be considered an Emerging Leader start to close, and if you are over 40, its the kiss of Death, no matter how good you are, how hard you work.

Advice to Management

Treat all employees as valuable, show some care and concern when employees have valid desires to manage their career. Engage on more than just your bottom line.

    I worked at Johns Manville full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid, stable company with a strong commitment to safety, employee development, volunteerism, financial returns and product stewardship. Mary Rhinehart, the new CEO, and Greg Clarke, the new CFO, are awesome and will move the company forward at a faster pace. It's new commitment to innovation should also help.

    Cons

    Market positions don't seem to be as strong as in the past. Surprisingly the company hasn't grown much under the Berkshire Hathaway ownership. Competitors are moving quicker in i environmental management systems and product declarations.

    Advice to Management

    Take better advantage of the Berkshire Hathaway ownership and grow. Double down on product development and stewardship. Learn more from the Europeans in sustainable solutions. Motivate employees to be more active in their communities.

    I have been working at Johns Manville full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and flexibility. time off policies.

    Cons

    JM clearly stands for Just Meetings, we really don't get a full 40 hours of work in because we are ALWAYS in meetings often with no value.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings or at least make the meetings we have add value to the company. Watch out for the MANY employees who find "important" busy work to justify the job they hold. This company could use a good old fashioned layoff to shed some of the dead weight.
