    I worked at Pilkington North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits that include alot of time off 108 hours 1-5 years and two weeks paid for Christmas and New Years! Also, the location I was at is Union.

    Cons

    The medical benefits were expensive even for individuals, plus you would have to pay two Union dues. The location I was at was a separate county from where I lived so I had to pay taxes for both as well as state and federal!

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your employees to move up within company as well as relocation benefits! I was not told about the Pilkington where I live now!!

    Pros

    Pilkington is a very good company to work for. It is not perfect, but no company is; however, the people are good to work with, the salaries and benefits are very competitive (Great 401k), and the management team is very fair and for the most part easy to work with.

    Cons

    No real cons to working for Pilkington. There may be some petty or minor ones but nothing that makes me want to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and keep listening to the employees.

    Pros

    I am in the archetechual group and the company is people oriented and focused on safety. The company has integrity and is willing to give good employees a chance to stretch themselves in order to grow in their career.

    Cons

    The business is lean and the organization is fairly horizontal. Thus, new opportunities do not open up frequently. However, the company does its best to make opportunities happen for employees willing to be creative.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I think that the management team is on the right track.
