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.

    PM and Sups don't care about the employees. They changes schedules often; required to work holiday& at times work 20 days in row. All about $

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new Plant Manager. Stop playing games. Sr Management is awesome but don't see what goes on in Merrimack.
