Big Company, small location atmosphere ruined by politics

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Merrimack, NH

I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

ProsWorldwide scope of an organization with great technical products and processes that can challenge technical people as well as good benefits overall.

ConsOverall management handling of local employees is poor; continual changing of General Managers who always have to "make their mark" in order to move themselves up don't have a clue typically about the business unit creates a political atmosphere where most middle managers have to try to fit into the new manager's thinking to survive. The French obsession with head count, rather than investment dollars, creates a more haphazard work atmosphere as well.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange your overall productivity measures so that each manager can have P&L responsibility based on investments and not just on head count.
