      excellent benefits, 401K, pays great if you can play the game and keep your head down, its not bad. just stay above the fray.

      Cons

      heartburn 24/7 thanks to trickle down bad attitude and insane political environment

      Advice to Management

      There is no I in team. The emphasis on "teamwork" is completely fake. back stabbing group from top to bottom. everyone is afraid of losing their job because Saint-Gobain mothership keeps invading space... managers just want to keep their jobs until retirement, underlings circling waiting for jobs to open up above them. nuts.

      I worked at CertainTeed full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great building and location in the suburbs. Modern workspace and lots of areas for breakouts, meetings, etc. People are genuinely nice and good to work with. Modern amenities onsite including high end cafeteria, employee activities like WW/Gym, and coffee bar. Excellent benefits available to F/T including 401k/Company Pension.

      Cons

      Lots of politics involved with every decision made. Takes a tremendous amount of time & velocity to make decisions, and after they happen, expect to have them done with little to no planning and timing. Good employees work long hours to cover for other employees who have limited purpose/scope. Many contractors fill vital roles that should be staffed with F/T professionals.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to the people doing the work, not the managers who don't see that day to day. Rely on technical professionals with experience to drive best practices, and spend wisely, instead of just to 'fix' a short term problem.

    • "Co-op engineering at CertainTeed"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I worked at CertainTeed

        Pros

        I made many connections with people within the company and learned about the business and operations of manufacturing processes

        Cons

        I did not learn as much as I would have liked to about actual engineering and did not have enough experiences with hand on engineering projects

        Advice to Management

        Provide co-ops with more opportunities to do real engineering

        Pros

        Great pay.Bonus. Meet nee people with good work ethic

        Cons

        Poor poor Management, I day this as 8n the Maintenance supervisor and the L7 supervisor all maintenance supervisors. Buddy buddy system is used very strongly along with favouritism. The workers that keep the place up to par are the line mechanics and a few day shift machanics,other than that it's a mess. Constant fear is drilled into the working mechanics head that their job is on the line. Structure is far from where...

        Advice to Management

        Take responsibility and stop pushing it on the men/woman that work so hard in order for you to have a job. Fix management and lead by example instead of throwing your employees under the bus.
