      Good company culture; people here are supportive and helpful. It has been very easy developing relationships with our plants across North America.

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Garden Grove, CA

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

      Pros

      Nothing but great things to say about this company. The level of emphasis they place on developing their employees is phenomenal. I have never been part of a company that listens to their employees and then works as best they can to implement input & feedback from them. Not everything is done, there's a review process & scope of limitations but what can be done usually is. Most of the management team are hard...

      Cons

      The healthcare is poor & not enough is covered to truly support anyone who has existing health complications.

      Advice to Management

      Please review the attendance & sick leave policy. An employee shouldn't have to use their vacation time to visit doctors who are inaccessible outside of 9-5p business hours & then be punished with higher rates if they don't.

      I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      very good place to start career. encouraging environment with strong research culture. one of the closer place to traditional way of industrial R&D. very wide range of industrial product and problems to solve. enough room for self-driven folks to learn and try new things. collaborative in general.

      Cons

      Too much politics and fight for control from different fraction and country. your career can be destroyed if you are not aligned correctly. Flush out mid- to senior level management team every a few times already over 10-15 years. The businesses that composed of the innovative materials section are all relatively small and not suitable for larger company's R&D environment and style. but the R&D arm functions...
