Former Employee - Senior Field Technical Ser Representative in Marysville, OH

I worked at PPG full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

1) You meet some of the best people to work with.
2) Continuous learning throughout your career.

Cons

Improvement within the management hiearchy. Mgt does not survey themselves for improvements in the field(plants).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mgt does not care about employees finishing their career at ppg.
Mgt needs to be more loyal to older employees(no lay-offs).

    Current Employee - Inside Sales Associate in Nashville, TN

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

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the architectural coatings industry and the products they carry really are superior to competitors brands. The benefits are also extremely good. Full medical and dental for your entire family.

    Cons

    Over the last 4 or 5 years, PPG has decreased salaries and as a result, there has Ben a ton of turnover inside the stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a decent wage! We are not order takers like the employees that work at McDonald's, there is a great amount of product knowledge and training involved with positions inside the store. Until you do this, customer service and employee satisfaction will continue to decline!

    I worked at PPG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good brand recognition, safety concious (wrong reasons), some great talent, not afraid to purchase premium equipment and be innovative.

    Cons

    Very political. ALOT of incompetent mid-management. Those folks are always looking for scapegoats to cover their actions or lack of. You are expected to relocate in order to advance (prob why mid management is so weak). They tend to purchase their technology and let the knowlegable people go (b.c they make too much) and then ruin good products by lack of knowlege and cost reduction. Work/life balance is poor. Pay and raises could be better. Review process is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise and retain your true performers. Stop buying in to your politician-like mid management.
