    Pros

    I feel I have a big say in the direction of my work and that it makes a big difference to the company. My role makes the most of my skills, so there's a good deal of job satisfaction. I like the people I work with too. Good travel opportunities and benefits.

    Cons

    No headphones allowed in the office and other strict minor rules. The product is not something your friends and family can relate to or be excited about.

    I have been working at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

    Pros

    Development opportunities, teamwork, there are many long serving employees so if you find you do fit in then prospects for long-term are good. The business does recognise most of its weaknesses and is trying to change

    Cons

    Negotiate hard on starting salary because it doesn't get fixed later if you fall behind

    Pros

    Overall, I am very happy and proud to work for Saint-Gobain. Saint-Gobain prides itself on an inclusive culture and overall concern for the well being of their employees. It's literally baked in to their ethos. I saw this first hand as the Covid-19 crisis unfolded when Saint-Gobain prioritized employees' needs and provided ample support where needed. It was much appreciated during this troubling and uncertain time. Additionally, I feel the contributions I make to our company are appreciated by my peers and I've always felt part of a team. I am surrounded by kind, considerate people who genuinely love what they do and want to make a difference. Lastly, the benefits and education resources available to our employees to help them care for their health as well as advance in their careers are very impressive. I feel well-supported and have mobility within the company if desired.

    Cons

    It's a large corporation, so navigating the nomenclature, policies, and various acronyms takes a bit of time!
