    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, management invested in employee's growth with training and stretch assignments for those wanting to go the extra mile. Decent benefits. Pay was average. A lot of high performing employees that inspired their colleagues to work hard and think outside of the box.

    Cons

    After the Saint Gobain acquisition, the culture of the San Diego site was negatively impacted. Employees that were used to working with a certain amount of autonomy felt micromanaged. This inhibited creativity and motivation. High turnover resulted.
