ProsGood people still hanging on to memories of the good old days.
Saint Gobain still has some good businesses, if you can find a way to get out of CertainTeed.

ConsManagement completely frozen and incapable of making any meaningful decisions on strategy.
Complete disregard for the value of their employees.
Manufacturing plants were built under the false premise that bigger is better, now you have huge under-utilize plants that are inflexible and very expensive.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompany must have enough autonomy from European parent to make its own decisions on key strategic initiatives.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
