I have been working at PPG full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

This company supports their employees. The company has been around sice the 1800's which means they have gone through the depression and the economic downturn we just had.

Cons

A very conservative company, one will have to be willing to relocate in order to advance one's career.

    I worked at PPG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable Company, 401K, Flexible Hours. HR, Benefits, Expense systems are all on-line. People rarely leave which provides consistency.

    Cons

    There is a very old-school mentality where breaking from the status quo is not accepted.
    If you want paid market rate, you need to be hired from outside, otherwise raises are rare and not much. The annual dividend is marketed as stability, but is really an excuse to reward large stockholders when it could be used to reward employees. There is too much group think and going outside the box doesn't bode well. It is impossible to get fired unless you are caught in the act of something against the rules, but even that is debatable. Performance ratings are based on a bell curve and not actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Retain existing talent, pay for performance, remove dead weight. Stop making people do more and more with less. Give raises greater than COLA.
