    I have been working at Owens Corning full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good with descent benefits. It's got good hours to work and the shifts are good too. Most of the production works are nice.

    Cons

    If you are a white male hard to advance up in jobs. The rotating days to night shift does suck too.

    Advice to Management

    Be better if you didn't turn down people thats more qualified for someone less because of color or sex.

    I worked at Owens Corning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great early career development
    Love the emphasis on safety
    Toledo headquarters still very nice ... aging a bit but still a top notch facility

    Cons

    Health benefits
    Work life balance non existent
    Extremely high turnover
    Culture rewards managing up, not necessarily results or treating people below you with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Reward more of VPs based on people feedback and results... you'd be surprised how much better your organization would turn out to be.

    Eliminate the Culture that rewards people who play the gossip and tearing down others game to get ahead. I suppose that is par for the course for most corporations but the culture at OC is particularly toxic...!maybe not at lower levels so much. I had a situation where two folks who were having an affair started going after eliminating roles of folks who weren't their good buddies. Senior Mgmt and HR didn't see it or failed to see it. They only cared that certain folks were 'popular and so no feedback was taken. I am sure legal fees and severance payouts here are high relative to most other Fortune 500 companies. Felt like high school.

    Pros

    Smart company with very talented CEO. Takes care of salary people with continuous education opportunities and cross functional training.

    Cons

    Workload can be intensive at the plant level with limited resources. Corporate is in Toledo which doesn't necessarily provide a great work life balance if you aren't from the area.

    Advice to Management

    Real smart people in management that say the right things when it counts. Some need to spend a little more time in the plants to get their perspective on how much people are doing there.

    Health care on site. Gym. Some nice people
