I worked at Pilkington North America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pretty good money, for operators and team leaders. Hours and days off.

Cons

Hot in summer and cold in winter, they have cut job so you do the work of three now down to one CBG Dept.

Advice to Management

Liston to your people on the floor.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Pilkington North America full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits across the board, excellent core team (with several truly outstanding individuals), amazing technology that is much better than competition in some areas

    Cons

    24/7 on call, with 60+ hour week common, high pressure environment that allows those driven to succeed at the expense of their families
    Unbelievably high salaried turnover, just fired CEO after 2 yrs, several reorganizations, 3500 person overhead downsizing in progress

    Advice to Management

    Insure proper mix of skilled non-degreed folks and degreed professionals. Balance workloads with appropriate resources (i.e. entry level engineers).

    Pros

    The benefits are great, if you can afford them, Allow you to take time off when neccasary.

    Cons

    Big Brother, very little praise, tons of blame. You get shut down for good ideas. Everyone in managment is a Yes Man, they dont listen they tell you what you want to hear and promise change but not ever comes and if you follow up on it, they act like they dont know what you are talking about. If you are a person who doesnt think outside the box, and keeps your mouth shut you are they type of employee they like.

    Advice to Management

    Fire 80% of management, then Pilkington might be alright to work at
