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

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Competitive pay and benefits. People generally treated well and nice work environment. Lots of opportunities to grow with such a large company. Lots of flexibility and outstanding work/life balance.

    Cons

    Most growth opportunities require relocation, especially if you are located in California as it is far away from most of the core business. Poor annual raises (1/2% - 2% per year).

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time

    Pros

    Performance Plastics has a large focus on values throughout the entire organization. As a whole, the company is working to create a strong value based culture and an inclusive workplace. PPL and the Saint-Gobain Group offer a lot of growth opportunity, mobility and eduction to their employees.

    Cons

    It is a large company and can be very slow moving and isn't always the most progressive. There are still outdated policies in place limiting flex time and the vacation policy is in dire need of a refresh.

    Pros

    The company has been around for almost 350 years = stability…can "weather the storm". Large company with locations in the U.S. and International affords employees endless opportunities for internal growth. Amazing number of employees with high years of service...dedicated & engaged workforce. Safety is number one and evident in the way the company operates daily.

    Cons

    Approval process for things can take some time due to the size of the company.

Everyone is committed to doing quality work and proud of what they do. It makes for great teamwork and a great environment.

    Being a large company, sometimes management can seem a bit disconnected. However this has improved greatly over the last few years for the positive.

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They really care about people. There are opportunities for working in lots of different countries, opportunities to move from one Saint-Gobain group to another. Large company, small business feel due to the many different sectors of activity and large product range. Performance Plastics is very forward thinking and strategic and is very successful. We even have an innovation department! The company also rewards its personnel well. They care about diversity, hiring only the best person for the job, regardless of colour, race, sex or creed.

    Cons

    Same as for most large corporations: change can take time, lots of bureaucracy and paperwork. Each Saint-Gobain business has it's own feel and can be very different to navigate. The senior management team are very approachable, but not everyone gets close enough to approach. Due to the global nature, overall the company is very diverse, but at the local level, not so much. Like most manufacturing companies, there are less women at the senior management level than there should be
