    Pros

    PPG is a well-respected global corporation and offers a lot of opportunity for career growth and development. The company is growing and focused on expanding its position in the coatings industry. Senior management is demanding but fair in my experience. Goals are clearly defined and managers are given the tools and support to deliver on what's expected of them.

    Cons

    The company is working to improve its diversity, but it has a very long way to go.
