    Pros

    good people, good products, benefits,

    Complete change in Upper management. Brought a lot of people from outside the Industry. Used to be the leader, now the competition is passing.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate the employees you have, don't base your decisions off a spreadsheet.

    I have been working at CertainTeed full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent pay for an entry level position, stable schedule, great work/life balance. Management is supportive and invested in making sure you have the tools and knowledge to do your job. Management also is encouraging of growing your skills in role for other roles.

    Cons

    Mobility within the company is somewhat limited at this time (2019) due to org restructuring. Job can get repetitive in many aspects. Company needs to be better at presenting a cohesive face to the customer between businesses (granted they are working on this). Also while current manager is encouraging of individual growth, have seen others that are not so supportive.

    Advice to Management

    More cross training and communication between business units.

    I worked at CertainTeed full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits and some great people on the factory level. There are some some really good divisions such as roofing divisions

    Cons

    Social Circle plant is poorly managed and there is no accountability. Lots of scapegoating by management to pass their mistakes on to their subordinates to save their job at the expense of their direct reports.

    Advice to Management

    Look at who adds value and stop promoting people based only on the fact they are French. Really bad company to move up as an American but the French employees fail and get promoted. Social Circle needs new management to fix its issues.

    Get it together.
