    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally a good place to work with nice and helpful coworkers. Plenty of interesting projects and issues to work on each day. Company has been a good corporate citizen and taken responsibility for a local emissions issue even though it may not all have been from the plant.

    Cons

    Some quality and safety issues in the plant have created a lot of tension within the last 2 years. New management is struggling to correct them. Seems to have a high turnover of senior management.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, good compensation, diverse working responsibilities (not in a bad way of being forced outside your role but instead just simply making the work interesting and varied)

    Cons

    Training can be a little rushed or forgotten at times, but when it is relevant to the current task they will stop to make sure you are trained

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

    Pros

    Saint Gobain actually cares about the employee. Safety is the #1 goal. Hand written birthday cards and yearly anniversary cards are very nice. My work is much appreciated. The company also encourages personal growth.

    Cons

    Sometimes the size of the company has an impact on responses/decisions.

    We take allegations of inappropriate behavior very seriously! Please contact the PPL HR Director or any member of the PPL Executive team to provide more information. It is extremely difficult to address issues if we do not know about them.

    Very great company culture. Nice people to work with. Really feels like a family. All age ranges and experience levels though they have been hiring a lot of more people over the past year. Opportunities to travel both nationally and internationally.

    Cons

    Poor talent is not necessarily recognized by upper management. Some new people could use more training on leadership and communication.

    April 25, 2016Director of HR

    Thank you for your review! I know it can be extremely frustrating to work with people who are not demonstrating the same level of engagement and contribution to the success of the Company. I can assure you that managers know who is truly helping them to achieve/deliver great business results even if it is not obvious to their team. But from an HR standpoint, we certainly need to make sure our managers and leaders are handling performance management in a way that aligns with our PPL Values and the Saint Gobain Principles of Conduct & Action
