    I worked at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to work with international group of people and travel; training programmes for employees; as part of a bigger group, PPL shares SG principles of conduct; health benefits quite good

    Cons

    Being part of a bigger group, internal audits and business controls are taken to a level that is at times disruption to the business activities; the salary follows strange pattern whereby you can be on a lower salary than person reporting to you ?! There is no sense of managament pulling towards one common goal, they seem to play a lot of politics to suit themselves

    Pros

    Beautiful building, nice amenities, average benefits. Company offers paternity leave and supports multiple cultures. Lots of employee events.

    Cons

    As with most jobs in Corporate America, headcount is everything. Departments struggle with inadequate man power due to inability to hire more help or are forced to let go of staff due to budget cuts.
