    I worked at GAF full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    High pay levels which result in poor "all about me" culture.

    Cons

    No team environment. Team members do not follow chain of command ... leaving team leaders to be blindside by their own salespeople. Managers walk around with targets on their backs.
