I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

Pros

Large, diverse, talented group of scientists and engineers. Perhaps too inward looking when trying to find new approaches to solving problems. However, diversity aids talent and skill development of newly minted MS and PhD employees. Good cross fertilization of talent from different technical backgrounds. Could have been supported with improved business interactions

Cons

If you are not French and want a leadership role - look elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look outside of the Grand Ecoles for your leadership. While talented - you are inbred as well

    Pros

    As a large diverse organization there are opportunities to change careers and even industries. If you are open to moving.

    Cons

    The opportunities are limited within each site. They have not assimilated the numerous acquisitions. There are a lot of conflicting corporate cultures. Very little synergy, or co-operative project efforts between plants. Every location acts as a separate company. New products are customer driven. IE They are not innovative just reactive. This is less risky but they completely avoid the chance to do something new and make use of their diverse product and manufacturing capabilities. Don't expect any new products...ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always chase elephants.
