    Pros

    Owens Corning truly cares about their employees. Their compensation strategy is competitive for the area. The 6% match plus free 2% is higher than most employers. OC also offers company stock at a discounted price. The company is also actively updating the WHQ office to modernize the facility. The renovation should incentivize millennials to work in Toledo. The company does have high moral standards that comes from top leadership.

    Cons

    The WHQ is located in Toledo Ohio. Even though the city is on the upswing, it is not the most exciting city. The vacation policy is average and the work from home option is not defined.
