    I worked at PPG as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Combined R&D and manufacturing experience - they specifically hire new graduates looking for experience. Lots of repetitive work if you don't feel like thinking. Bosses are more than willing to train you if you ask.

    Cons

    They are firm that you probably won't be able to advance in the current position. You'll need to apply to another position in the same firm or after you gain the exp., move on. As long as you understand this, it will be a positive exp. Management is always stressed.

    Pros

    The company has global reach, and offers good benefits, salaries, and other incentives for employees. There is sometimes an energetic atmosphere. The company is rapidly growing company and its products are ubiquitous.

    Cons

    The company employs a great number of contractors and offers them little to no chance for direct hire. Many departments are male-dominated, especially in management. There is a "traditional" corporate atmosphere. There is a very high turnover rate in some positions.
