    I worked at Plastic Omnium full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, free coffee and tea, monthly lunch parties, trip to France.

    Cons

    Onboarding process was awful. Zero commitment to training for the job that you have. They essentially throw you to the wolves. A hands-off and intimidating leadership approach. You only get feedback on your work if it is bad and if you ask for more development there is zero commitment to developing a plan. Even the interns think that their work is a joke with little to no direction or learning opportunity. I was hired on by a manager and then only spoke to him a total of 3 more times.

    Advice to Management

    Show a commitment to your underlings. Make yourself more approachable. Train your employees to do their job and WANT to do their job right. Give positive feedback.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice employees, opportunity to grow and travel.

    Cons

    Everything comes at a cost. If you are not a manager's favorite - start looking for another job NOW. The Customer Center is a mess, as is the HR department. Turn over is high. Stay away from these departments - half of the employees look tired and overworked, while the other half treats you like they are better than you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends. Hire based on quality background skills and experience. Stop letting HR into every meeting - they are controlling everything. Nobody trusts them and this makes it difficult to speak up during meetings. Dry cleaning and wearing jeans on Friday is not work/life balance. Listen to employees without making them fearful of how their feedback will be taken

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great benefits. Good vacation time. Will pay premium to work here, but be careful, there’s a reason for this. Most people leave.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Lack of leadership. Marching orders come from France. Disappointing hr department. No structure. Lack of shared services means daily business issues on accounting side. Very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Determine who will make decisions, Troy or France.

    Pros

    Significant international exposure, maintain great benefits when most companies have high-deductible plans (vacation and other benefits also solid), stable company with lots of cash and focus on innovation. Opportunities to create improvement - for those coming from larger companies, less red tape in some areas.

    Cons

    Quirky rules and at times, inflexible way of doing business unless its the 'French Way', which may prohibit or slow growth moving forward on a global scale. Need to be more progressive and change quicker.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the approach that got you here and focus on becoming what a 10+ billion euro company does. Don't over-value loyalty at the cost of effectiveness. Improving standardization and organizational structure efficiency will create more profit and allow for much needed additional resources.
