    lots of paperwork that could be done electronically.

    I have been working at USG full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are more communications than ever before from the executive committee which definitely helps motivate employees. Lately our teams plan to win has created our own company recession recovery which has motivated all employees from senior executives to the operator level. We have seen our first pay raise in some time as promised and looking forward to the future with great faith in our executive leaders.

    Cons

    Some USG location seem slow to adapt to new technology but getting better.
    Still have unrealistic deadlines to meet which stunt project growth due to manpower shortages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the communications and try to speed up the adaptation of new technologies at all plants.
