    I have been working at Saint-Gobain full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diversity in all things. The local R&D environment has over 30 nationalities represented as well as great technical depth in the number of research projects and Saint-Gobain North American businesses represented at the Center.

    Cons

    Like any large company, there are always some bureaucratic things that need to be accepted/navigated. IT practices might be seen somewhat behind the times by early career/new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt more flexible IT practices (e.g. BYOD) that allow people to work in the most efficient and productive way of their choosing.
