    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Saint-Gobain is a massive world wide company that still maintains a personable / family like feel. The management is mostly great and in a company this big there is a lot of opportunity for growth. In fact, Corporate actively encourages employees to seek growth and development of their career. Saint-Gobain see's it's employees as assets, not just worker bee's, and they're willing to invest greatly into your training and growth within the company. Saint-Gobain's #1 concern is its employee's safety and operates many programs and actively rewards plants that achieve safety goals.

    Cons

    There's a lot of constantly changing programs within the massive company. The many plants operate very differently and Corporate is currently attempting to standardize business practices through their WCM (World Class Manufacturing) program. As a result many plants are going through big changes that can at times be like jumping into river rapids for a new employee.

    Thank you for the review! I'm happy to hear that our key messages on the importance of safety and employee development are making their way into the organization. I can appreciate your analogy of "jumping into river rapids"... I felt the same when I joined two years ago and I needed to navigate all the programs, policies and practices of Saint Gobain Performance Plastics. Rest assured that it does get better!
