I worked at PPG full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Stable Company, 401K, Flexible Hours. HR, Benefits, Expense systems are all on-line. People rarely leave which provides consistency.

Cons

There is a very old-school mentality where breaking from the status quo is not accepted.
If you want paid market rate, you need to be hired from outside, otherwise raises are rare and not much. The annual dividend is marketed as stability, but is really an excuse to reward large stockholders when it could be used to reward employees. There is too much group think and going outside the box doesn't bode well. It is impossible to get fired unless you are caught in the act of something against the rules, but even that is debatable. Performance ratings are based on a bell curve and not actual performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retain existing talent, pay for performance, remove dead weight. Stop making people do more and more with less. Give raises greater than COLA.

    Pros

    PPG is a good company to work for, people are very friendly.

    Cons

    they hire a lot of contractors and they will not hire them full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you are losing a lot of good workers just because you are not hiring them as well as losing time and resources.
