    I worked at Johns Manville full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and the incentive programs for bonus money.

    Cons

    The plant in winder Ga has an issue with inclusion. They believe that if your of a certain demographic then your not qualified. When you challenge this therory the feel like you aren't part of making the plant better. Once they place a Target on you your best move is to resign because they will label you regardless of the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    You were once entry level. Understand that and it's not 1970 something anymore evolve.

    Pros

    Excellent incentive programs to encourage an individual to always better themselves; opportunities for advancement after one year in current position

    Cons

    Occasionally a supervisor will hold you back from advancing in the company as was the case with me for 10 years. I finally had to sneak around her when she was on vacation and go above her head in order to advance in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Watch for those individuals who do not allow there subordinates to advance in the company.
