    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Hidden gem in Akron. Great pay with OT available if you want it, work life balance is great now, lots of good change finally! Management is trying to listen to the floor and seems to be working together. Work environment is good. Bonus for everyone.

    Cons

    Plant is a bit outdated and could use a facelift.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful building, nice amenities, average benefits. Company offers paternity leave and supports multiple cultures. Lots of employee events.

    Cons

    As with most jobs in Corporate America, headcount is everything. Departments struggle with inadequate man power due to inability to hire more help or are forced to let go of staff due to budget cuts.

    Pros

    Saint-Gobain is a good company to work for. They treat their employees with respect and dignity and care greatly about the community they are in. They offer great benefits and career opportunities. There are a lot of really good people working in Merrimack who make a difference everyday. They have honest relationships with the employees and make everyone a part of the team.

    Cons

    The site has had difficulty with PFOA issues, which they have worked hard to remedy and some members of the community can't seem to see that. They stepped up when others wouldn't and did the right thing.

    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 worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics part-time

    Pros

    There are a few people who are genuine and care about the progression of this company. Good pay.

    Cons

    Company as a whole doesn't have much of a direction. A lot of toxic employees who can be heard talking trash about their co-workers saying "_____ should be fired" or "_____ doesn't do their job". Definitely a lot of tension within the employees and they don't work as a unit. Instead focuses on their own responsibilities. Many employees are leaving as well and I'm not surprised why they wouldn't.
