I have been working at Saint-Gobain full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Friendly people, salary and benefits are good.

Cons

Interdepartmental bickering, finger pointing and CYA behavior is rampant. I have the impression sometimes that different departments are not focused on a shared goal. The workload is heavy - it is not normally possible to complete daily work in only 8 hours.

Advice to Management

Stop projecting and actively listen. There are so many highly skilled and very devoted people here who have great ideas. Don't dismiss them - let them be heard. Value the good people who are spending most of their waking life here by thanking them occasionally.

    Pros

    Management is engaged, good early career experience, global experience possible, high expectations, values driven, long history, internal resources to get projects done

    Cons

    Low diversity in the management ranks, risk adverse, poor marketing skills within the company, not very well known around the world, could do much more in HR to give career projections and paths

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop a more diverse management team -- gender, nationality, culture.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers. The company has a very diverse portfolio of companies which allows for career growth. The benefits are satisfactory.

    Cons

    Senior management is unethical, constantly fighting and care only about their bonuses. There is a lack of diversity in the management ranks. Minorities are criticized behind closed doors for their speech, customs. The CEO made a public proclamation about wanting to attract younger workers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of senior management. They preach values and ethics but act agains the values statement everyday
