During my time at PPG I met and worked with some incredible people, who are caring and passionate. Unfortunately that enthusiasm is not encouraged or mimicked by the management. Staff are bullied and put under great pressure for no reward.
Pros
Great team members
Cons
Poor management, outdated facilities

american owned company
that at times its seems a little out of touch with the Australian market ,

extremely cut throat when it came to roles and peoples positions

not scared to move people on , career progression withing PPG is capable and realistic , some great people within the company

but change of management has seen alot of people leave over the years , forever in the shadow of its competitor DULUX

My role was parttime making it a full and satisfying position.
Management was relaxed and approachable and the workplace was stable.


There was freedom to manage your workload independantly and support to complete tasks within deadlines. Hardest part of the job was fitting it all in.
Pros
Subsidised Canteen
Cons
Travel time

Horrible people managing this company. They don't care for their workers at all. They ate constantly reducing head count and only care for production. Zero effort given to safety.
Pros
Nothing

Everything

I was hired on as a contractor and later extended to full time. This was a smaller manufacturing site. People were friendly from the very beginning. Excellent on-boarding and adherence to safety best practices.
People worked well together from engineering to operations, maintenance and management. Strong focus on results and cooperation to achieve results. We worked hard, but still were able to have fun while doing it.
Pros
Great pay, Excellent co-workers, hardworking and knowledgeable team. Management was logical and reasonable
Cons
Department was small so work hours were often long

the job was very easy and I really enjoyed working there. The hardest thing about the job was standing for a couple of hours.

Communication from top-tier management down wasn't always fantastic.
A typical day was spent taking and mixing orders, as well as organising the shop.

Co-workers are all focussed and hard-working.

The hardest part of the job was definitely to grow the business; policies put in place, while practical and logical for the business, tied our hands and gave us little leeway.

The most enjoyable part of the job was the people - customers and co-workers alike. Good, honest, hard-working people.
Pros
People; job expectations in black and white; recognition for hard work
Cons
Odd working hours; career progression opportunities limited

I enjoy the variety of duties associated with my role as a Business Development Manager, I interact with a varied range of people, from General managers and CEO's, down to purchasing officers and paint applicators. One day is never the same as the one before, and I am always learning.

Multi layered company - very much focused on inorganic growth via acquistions.

Very shareholder value focused.


Australia however appears to be disconnected from the global business.

Start early, finish late, culture of mistrust & fear for ones job, constant stream of people being retrenched and others taking there role with a different title.
