I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time (More than 10 years)
SGPPL works hard at creating a culture that is diverse, innovative, fun and yet still effective. I love working for this company. At heart it is a manufacturing company, but it is also so much more. Management listens to their teams; they work hard to create a supportive environment where talent is recognised and people are developed.
Like most manufacturing giants there is some red tape, but the amount and scope of the red tape is improving, barriers are being broken down between traditional silos and there is a huge amount of work ongoing to make SGPPL more diverse. It could all be better of course and needs to improve to make this company truly outstanding.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing and if possible do it faster. More barriers need to be broken down and more of the senior leaders need to get out of their own way and let their teams continue to shine.
