    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    Plant is a bit outdated and could use a facelift.

    Pros

    Great employees. The work environment on the floor is positive and most people want to do their best. Everyone helps co-workers to succeed.

    Cons

    The structure of the organization forces HR to report to plant manager when in most cases, plant managers are the HR concern out on the floor. Our plant was without HR for several months. Our plant manager sent out a notice that he would be handling all HR concerns in Hoosick Falls. Is that even legal?

    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics for less than a year

    Pros

    Working at Saint Gobain was great, I learned a lot and was really impressed by their work culture. The company has committees for different aspects within it, like a safety committee and fun committee, and these commitees plan out events and initiatives in the factory on top of the normal work of their members. That allows everyone to be engaged in the work environment and everybody is really friendly as well. The work wasn't tedious and I got to take on multiple roles, which I enjoyed.

    Cons

    There could have been more professional development events for interns, there were a few but those were few and far between.

    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 worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time

    Pros

    -People in general are very nice, and work environment was good. -Saint-Gobain PPL makes sure that your work condition is safe, and the plant was very clean compared to most of the other plastic manufacturing plant I have been in. -It's a decently stable job because most of their product lines are mature and the market does not fluctuate that much. -Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    -Pay is significantly lower than other leading plastics manufacturing companies. -Workers are often promoted to managers or leads based on number of years at the company or how much education they have, not necessarily whether they're good at what they do. -I think it is to save money, but many of the positions when people leave are not back-filled, which means all the other people have to fill in that gap. I was constantly running around "fighting fires" and doing several different types of jobs because there was no one else to take care of things. -Because it's a stable job, people get used to doing just their work and it's easy to get complacent. This means that a few people who actually want to do a good job end up doing multiple tasks and get overwhelmed.
