I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Working environment is fine
Training is constant and usually good
Mentoring is a established program

Cons

Salary seems below market
Progress is slow
No matter if you are technically good; you must be a good "networker", otherwise your career will not grow...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Place is losing too many skilled people and you are hiring people with no experience in the area.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

    Pros

    nothing really except a relatively good salary, few good colleagues and a small/rapidly declining number of experienced staff.

    Cons

    There are several downsides but nothing as serious as the management. Incompetent management and a total lack of respect to staff.

    Couldn't agree more with a review berlow about bad managers with horrid tempers

    It has been a struggle to continuously re-adapt to 3 different managers for our branch in three years - it's hard.

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

    Pros

    great benefits, good time off plan, retirement plan, good 401k contributions, bonus pay possible, dress is casual

    Cons

    Management is few in number with too much to do loaded on to them. One works hard and picks up all the slack while the other has a horrid temper and is extrememly difficult to work with. There are no checks or balances for bad managers so the problems continue to happen without any effort to mediate on HR's part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the people you have in place as managers and then go talk to people who work for them or even the ones who don't - hear how they think our office is doing in terms of morale and teamwork. Find out what their managerial styles are really like and fix the issues with more training for the managers or just new managers.
