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

    Pros

    There are not a lot of pros working for this company. Here are a couple of Pros: Flexible schedule, company vehicle and company cell phone.

    Cons

    You have to pay $125 per month for your company car. Technology is extremely outdated compared to our competition. My office/store does not have air conditioning which makes it an extremely uncomfortable working environment. Benefits are not that great. Males only get one week of paternity paid leave. Pay is subpar. Very hard to achieve sales goals when you are constantly battling internal company problems. For example constantly out of stock in warehouse, batch issues, not enough product line, product skus not created and takes weeks to get new sku number.

    Advice to Management

    Way too much busy work and too many meetings. Time would be better spent in the field selling. Management could do a better job of giving recognition to their employees. You have a star rewards program that is almost never used by our local management. Employees can cash in rewards for visa gift cards or a catalog of merchandise. For you to lysing this program would greatly improve employee morale. Need to figure out a better way of getting all store employees to be engaged with the sales reps.

    I worked at PPG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent work environment. The u do a good job of not working the employees too so that they can perform good quality par ts.

    Cons

    Schedules need adjusting to accommodate child care. Maybe if they would start work around 6 or 7 employees would not have to make modifications to handle the kids before daycare opens.

    I worked at PPG full-time

    Pros

    Remote work makes it easier to stay away from the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Too bureaucratic. Too slow. Do not act on employee suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to deal with customers with long term perspective. Stop changing strategy every 2-3 months in hopes of a spike on the share price.

    I worked at PPG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k, pay competitive, coworkers, community outreach, Salvation Army support, united way, local organization support, too bad I have nothing else positive to say

    Cons

    Dishonest management, performance reviews mean nothing, unfair favoritism, leaders not allowed to lead, get approval before leading, no trust level, sad to say they are a Pittsburgh company with ethical policy they never intend to follow.

    Advice to Management

    A leadership team that uses their brain. No opinions/perceptions, let employees try new things! Let them feel challenged! Don't let one person provide bad negative comments and make decisions on that. IT needs a total overhaul of top management. Women should be allowed to have families without being penalized behind the curtain. Allow employees to be friendly and care about their team, this is not a weakness, only great leaders possess these qualities. But they have to be genuine, people can spot ingenious personalities a mile away.
