Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Delavan, WI – January 2, 2019
Not like it was many years ago. Had great benefits and no slow periods. I have worked here 24 years and it slow down so i have to have a part time job for supplement income for there no over time at USG at this time. I am very grateful for my job but need more money.
Job training is good no lay offs people are good to work with.
Benefits and no overtime at this time slow. Not paid well for as many years in service

Great place to work if you don't mind taking care of mindless PM"S. Also you need to learn how to do things that they did in 1974. No advancement. It would not be a bad place to work if there was less micro management.
Technician / Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Libertyville, IL – October 17, 2018
I have worked as a Contractor for USG for almost 2 years now. I was encouraged to work hard and to learn new things with the promise that the company would hire me if I did so. I was misled. This isn't terribly uncommon for employers, and I did find the community to be mostly friendly and encouraging. Is at least an interesting job.

USG pride themselves on safety as a company and for the long term of their employees. Here I learned the importance of following rules and how quickly a person can get hurt. Because of their strict rules on safety and how they enforce those rules; more employees go home safely and are able to work long term.

There is an outdated work culture, and it's easy to see.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
