    I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very stable company with a long history of over 125 years. Great compensation and office buildings. The company has great benefits, most of the employees )are great, world class manufacturing facilities.

    Cons

    The company has no real corporate culture, but is trying to hang on to the culture of the past family management. There has been a great deal of turn over at the corporate offices in Colorado. The company is dominated by white males, thus very little diversity. Diversity is only a show, the Aerospace division is an exception to this rule. 

    The company is very fragmented, while some divisions are running well, the largest division in USA and Canada is not the place to be in. Most of the executive management in this division are new with big echos. They are more focused on changing employee base than real strategy. The finance area is the most concerning, and the entire department has turned over. The division finance and administration management are creating and seems to thrive on operating with a very unhealthy culture.  If you don't agree with management you will be fired, thus most management is new and entire departments are having high turn over in the rank and file over the last 2 years.

    There is too much politics within the division, that coupled with executive management favoritism and upward mobility is not possible. You can only move around if a few in management like you. There is little or no employee development and engagement, it appears division management is basically carrying out employee cleansing, based on a private agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what's happening to your largest division, it's management, culture and employee moral. If you don't act now this division under current management will destroy this great company from within.
