  4. "Good Company"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Corporate Counsel in Toledo, OH

    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time

    Pros

    Good People, and the pay is pretty good given the low cost of living in the area.

    Cons

    Big company with lots of policies. Probably not specific to OC, but typical of big organizations.

    I worked at Owens Corning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    OC puts a lot of effort into showing they are a top company, and has all the programs, benefits, perks you would expect at top companies (if you work in Toledo). Co-workers are generally good to work with (though there is a lot of jockeying for promotions). Pay is decent (not a pay leader) Benefits are decent (again, not a leader)

    Cons

    Very centralized. Your experience as an employee is extremely different at HQ than out in the field. HQ does NOT have a mindset that they are there to support the plants/field...the opposite. Most decisions are made without input from the bulk of the population that will be most impacted. I thought coming to HQ would allow for more involvement, but even then it is very politicized and clique-ish. You have to do a lot of work on relationship-building. With all of their great diversity & inclusion programs that they love to tout, you don't get the feeling that OC is very inclusive. Cultural-fit is still very much the feel, and you have to conform to them...they don't do much to help you as an individual. It feels that OC does the diversity & inclusion as a "check the box" thing and then pat themselves on the back for the awards they receive. It's both easy & difficult to get promoted. If you have the right relationships and fit their mold, you can have a fast-track. But if you don't, then you'll never get promoted. Once you are in Toledo, you are left with very few other choices if you want to leave. Maybe that is part of the problem, leadership feels they are doing a better job than they are because the peer group in Toledo is very small.
