    I worked at USG full-time

    Pros

    Management seems to care and places a lot of emphasis on efficiency. The underlying inefficient systems are never directly addressed but with the staggering cost to replace them it is no wonder.

    Cons

    Resistant to meaningful change and overwhelming emphasis placed on satisfying auditors and Wall Street.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your core products and smile once in a while.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, people willing to help others. Good people working there. One day a week, you can work from home. Summer hours. Overall, a nice place to work. There are crazy/busy times once in a while, but it's not the norm. It's fast-paced, but manageable.

    Cons

    I've enjoyed my time at USG and don't see any major downsides that need to be shared. Let's face it, is there really that perfect job? I don't think so.
