    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Toledo Headquarters is very nice and a welcoming place to work
    Plant focus on safety is great
    Lots of opportunities to grow in current function and cross functionally.
    A lot of great exposure to senior leadership in both Building Materials and Composites
    Town halls are great to keep employees informed on the issues surrounding the company.

    Cons

    Can be political at times
    Expected to work a lot of additional hours outside of the normal work hours.

    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your role the work-lift balance can be either good or bad. Jobs at HQ in Toledo are probably worse for that than at a plant or in the field. Pay levels are fair, but there is a need to negotiate that and benefits are OK.

    Cons

    Systems are not top notch and implementation of new ones is done very poorly. As mentioned work-life balance at HQ is not great for many roles. Union environment at some facilities can make life difficult when it comes to asking for things to get completed, but most folks are flexibile. Lots of old-timers holding on to the way things were need to get with the program and realize the world has changed.

    Advice to Management

    Make note of all of the people leaving the company, there is a reason. Clarify pay system for everyone so that transparency can help those that don't get a raise annually or even every other year.
