I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

Pros

Large international corporate experience. Great for the MBA.

Cons

Large international corporate experience. Too interested in moving production to China to consider the ramifications on the local workforce which gets strung along, never quite sure how long their jobs will last.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better top down communication. Reduce levels of management. Pay more attention to the hands on employees.

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The freedom and expectation for you to come up with innovative ideas and impelment them. The American empowered management style within the French paternalistic group is interesting.
    A strong global team with opportunities to travel and work with people across the world

    Cons

    Compensation is not great, once you are in a role its very difficult to get it adjusted so negotiate hard on joining.
    The Matrix management can be frustrating with many managers having two bosses sometimes more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a fair wage and keep it in line with the market for existing employees
