    I have been working at Saint-Gobain full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The fact that Saint-Gobain is a global leader in many industries brings a completely different dynamic to your job as oppose to working for a small local business. Saint-Gobain invests into developing its employees and provides opportunities for professional and career growth.

    Cons

    A reasonable life-work balance is very difficult to maintain. There are very many days that you work 11+ hours. On the other hand, company supports you taking time for your family and personal matters.

    Interview Details

    Interviews were very structured and quick. When the company wants to make something happen, or even if there are hiccups, the company will work hard to accommodate your requests. I would suggest the interviewer be prepared to ask a lot of questions to sniff out the challenges of the job prior to accepting an offer.
