    Pros

    I have had 4 managers in 4 years. Only 1 of the 4 did not support personal and professional growth and that one only lasted for 6 months. My department is very supportive of work/life balance and we have the choice to work remote as needed.
    We have a newly redefined technical ladder which holds great promise

    Cons

    hard to get level / salary increases. New technical ladder should help those of us who are not interested in management but do lead decisions and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Having the option to work remote during bad weather or when you have personal situations is a strong ingredient in personnel retention.

    Professional development and training have been a low priority in many departments because of the extremely lean work force. A lack of cross-training and passive assistance to individuals for defining and reaching goals has lead to a low salaried retention rate in highly technical support departments.

    Support department managers should be trained better to be managers rather than promoted from the ranks and expected to knnow how to manage.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good wages, open communication, treated as a person and not like a number, a place for career advancements, shows a great emphasis on the safety of the employees.

    Just an overall great place to work, a company that actually listens to the employees.

    Cons

    The one con I can say is the fact that you do not get overtime pay if you take an eight hour vacation day during the week and you end up with over 40 hours because you worked overtime the days you were there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Continue to focus on the safety of all your employees, give credit where credit is due.

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

    Pros

    Berkshire backing, GREAT people, focus on doing the right thing for employees and customers. The people I work with like to have fun at work -- and can do that and be productive at the same time. Lots of loyalty. I get a lot of autonomy and am allowed to try new things. My boss is amazing and works on developing me.

    Cons

    Decisions have to go all the way to the top and this slows things down. Cyclical industry. Not enough classroom training available for leadership skills given size of company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the times we live in have changed. Address what younger workers want. You have a pension and lots of vacation but the new people don't have either. Find a way to give more flexibility.
