    I worked at Johns Manville full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great compensation & benefits (except the health insurance), with unlimited sick days, subsidized transportation, and a decent 401k offering. The stability of being backed by Berkshire Hathaway is great, although I heard there were across the board layoffs recently. Overall a phenomenal learning experience, and exposure to a global manufacturing firm. If you're willing to take initiative and want to learn and grow, the possibilities are endless. My managers were amazing and I liked my team, but each group is kind of it's own mini-company. Even the dress code varies by group. That said, corporate is great! Oh and the 'Bring your child to work' day is something else. The activities they put on are incredible, my kids were so sad when they found out I got a new job.

    Cons

    Huge company, and you will be in a silo. I worked with people for years without meeting them (they worked in the same building), and didn't really even interact that much with the people in my own group. Also, the health insurance is pretty terrible.

    Great company and management. Transparent with a lot of support from across the functional groups.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Johns Manville full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay well, some leaders are progressive and inclusive

    Cons

    They say safety is a huge priority, but do minimal safety training for employees, even in a manufacturing setting around heavy equipment. They say they put employees first, but were quick to lay people off with the onset of coronavirus economic impacts. They do superficial employee focused initiatives, but nothing truly meaningful. It takes forever to be awarded a promotion. Plan to be in your role at least 3-5 years before you can move up. Basically, they say they care, but it's mostly lip-service. They aren't willing to actually put effort towards changing things in a meaningful way to positively impact employees.

    Pros

    Can’t really think of any other then it’s a job.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement. Lateral moves mostly. Slow to get help when overwhelmed and will let you drown. Management attitude, I quote one of them “If you don’t like it, I can help you leave”
