Digital Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 18, 2018
There is an outdated work culture, and it's easy to see. Most individuals are confined to their silo and there isn't much room for growth out of it. I believe corporate needs to overhaul both the work environment and culture in regards to the rising generations. They're a little stuck in the past, and it's time to look at the future of the company.

USG is by far the best company I have ever worked for. Work life balance is on point. Benefits were more than complimentary. Management took the time to listen and worked with you one on one to help you advance in your career with them.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 4, 2017
Great benefits but very poor management and job security. Extremely stressful and discriminatory. The only woman working there. Put down constantly, talked down to, cursed at and management always made it seem as though it was my fault.
They don't really want women there but they can't discriminate by not hiring one if you're qualified but they will show you how much they don't want you there.
IT (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 3, 2017
They have plenty of technical debt. There are several employees that have been there for 20+ years. That's is great, however they are inept to using newer technologies or taking risk. There are plenty of politics to go around. If you can't get in with a "click" your time is limited. Overall the company is a great place to work, perhaps not in IT.
Pretty good work life balance, close to train, great people to work with for the most part.
Technical debt, cut throat environment especially if you can't get in with the "in crowd."

I loved working at USG. the only thing i didnt like was there attendance points system. I was let go for my attendence due to having a two court hearings that they knew about that was scheduled before i started there.
paid lunches, fishing trips, great pay, great people
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 17, 2017
This was an exceptional corporation to work for. They were very supportive and encourage training, growth and advancement from within. It became very difficult for me to be gone 12 hour days and occasional travel once I had my second child. The Corporation was entering Bankruptcy for the 2nd time in my career there and were offering VERY general packages to those interested. I left with almost a full-year's salary, PAID Cobra benefits and my pension. I hated leaving the company, but it was the best decision for my family at the time (my youngest was VERY unhappy in day care)
wonderful, family culture
long days commuting into Chicago and back every day
