I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time

Pros

I have worked in this company for quite some time. I have been afforded many different opportunities during my career, in different capacities and functional areas and I have had FUN doing it all. I have found that you don't always have to move straight up the ladder to achieve success. I grew from the many challenges and skills I acquired, while taking on roles that were lateral. I have also been fortunate to work with some terrific people, who exemplify what it means to be a leader; who understand that their success depends on the success of those around them; whether it be their peer, subordinate or their manager. You are not alone in Performance Plastics, there are people around to help guide you, train you, counsel you and support you. But you can't be shy: listen, learn and then contribute. Keep in mind it isn't always fun, we work hard, very hard to be the best we can but I think it has been worth it.

Cons

Sometimes the layers of management can make it difficult to get action, approval or buy-in. However, we are a successful business and that doesn't happen without due consideration.

    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well-known company, good brand-name presence

    Cons

    Company moves real slow. Sometimes seems like too many chefs in the kitchen. Doesn't always hire from within like they claim

    Advice to Management

    Empower more employees

    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity for development and supportive of education and training

    Cons

    Dog-eat-dog politics, too many meetings, too strict on headcount and overloading salaried staff

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the reins and allow managers to manage including budget and headcount. Allow more fixed heads to help retain your talent before they burn out.
