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

    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?

    Advice to Management

    Look at reporting structure of HR and EHS. These departments should have corporate reporting not local.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure to back fill those positions that opens up when someone leaves. Make sure to put tools in place to ensure communications between different plants for the same business. Build culture from the plant level that we can trust each other - not that you have to fight for yourself all the time. Constant battling between different plants makes it very difficult to have a profitable business. Don't just talk...

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Friendly work environment. Very focused on employee safety.

    Cons

    Struggling to find identify due to extreme diversity of company. Company operates very much as collection of acquisitions. Poor career mobility. Annual pay increases low by design.

    Advice to Management

    Shift to a more centralized process for activities such as quality, supplier quality and regulatory affairs. Establish focus teams to develop and roll out new processes in these areas. Also need to better coordinate continuous improvement programs, with focus on standardization at the manufacturing level.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are good, plenty of opportunties to move into different positions on the floor as well as other sites. Extremly safe work environment, as well as clean.

    Cons

    Sometimes bureacracy can slow things down but it is a very large organization which comes with the territory. Bumping up vacation allowance would be a plus.
