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

Pros

There are a lot of good hardworking people within the company.

Cons

Downsizing through the years has prevented people from being able to advance. People who stuck with them through the tough times by taking on more work and not getting raises have not been appreciated.

Advice to Management

Don't continue to count on employees sticking around and doing two or three peoples
who got laid off jobs. As jobs become available employees you take for granted will seek other employment. I worked with USG for over 15 years and being treated like that made me leave.

    I worked at USG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great People. Great Product. Excellent work life balance (if you are in the right department). A family atmosphere. Located downtown right behind the Metra train station. Pay is OK, not the best, but not the worst. Lots of extra activities, focus groups, lunch and learns, weight loss challenges…things to benefit the employees. Great perks.

    Cons

    USG rarely gets rid of people who have proven to no longer be valuable to the company. In many departments these "slacker" or OLD heads hold key positions. This is demoralizing to up and comings and doesn't give you the warm an fuzzes about promotions. Career paths are better than previous years, but a long way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the little guys who actually do the work.
