    I worked at Glassolutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work with amazing products and projects. Some of the people belong to the best of the best in their field some even becoming friends for life. Decent salary, nice company car.

    Cons

    GS / SG likes to portray themself as a very principled company. They are not. People don't count, profit does. There is an immense amount of protectionism (and hence brown-nosing) and internal competition between (and within) branches going on. One factory will underbid another for the same project. While the project could have simply been won by the first factory if left alone. This is due to the second factory being afraid to be the next to be shut down / laid off. Ruthless management will plan a shutdown years in advance and milk a factory for all it's know-how and siphone away key people months in advance without telling mid-management. Any innovation or thinking outside the box is not appreciated whatsoever, very stiff company structure (top-down). Generally even sister companies behave like a pain in the b.... towards each other, as if they were mortal enemies instead of being part of the same group and working towards one goal. And if you cannot achieve your targets because of that, you take the blame. They also like to style themselves as a "Top Employer". They are not. From upper management promises are made to keep a factory open. The next year it is shut down anyway. Promises are made that at least half of the staff will be offered alternative positions within the group. Two people eventually get offers. If you come an single month short to receive some benefits when being laid off, you can count on it that you will not be shown any lenience or even gratitude for the work you put in.
