I have been working at USG full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It offers a great work life balance.

Cons

There is virtually no upward mobility.

Advice to Management

The 'kiss-up-spit-down" practice backfires, so managers would be better off treating the staff with respect and courtesy.

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

    Pros

    Work-Life balance at USG is not something to which lip service is paid, but is real. This is rare. Also, USG's employees are generally more agreeable and easier to work with than anywhere else that I have worked. The atmosphere is collaberative and cooperative. This is a very solid company that has been around for over 100 years, and is positioned to do very well once construction's rebound gets some legs

    Cons

    Compensation is average. As is common in Industry, employees' workloads are pretty high. Given how process-oriented IT has become, this can be a source of frustration.

    Advice to Management

    I have a lot of confidence in upper management. Keep it up.
