    I worked at Ball Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was very respectable, as well as the company focused on continuing to invest in it's employees. I've gotten the change to speak with Balls CEO John Hayes while working there, and his attitude about the company, as well as focus as a company is a place I want to be.

    Cons

    As with most companies, there's a disconnect between corporate and plants, which creates problems when trying to improve the company.

    Very Generous Company

    I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ball offers a very generous compensation and benefits package. The company provides ample development opportunities for those who are willing to put in the work. Ball is very generous in its charitable giving in the communities where it operates. The company has been around a long time and is built on a history of success. There is very low turnover at the company which speaks highly of the culture.

    Cons

    A large company where underperformers can get lost. It's low turnover can also be seen as a negative in that ideas and policies remain a bit stagnant over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, keep up the good work.

    a great co-op experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Ball Corporation as an intern

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working here. There was a lot of work and business travel for an engineering co-op, a lot more than I expected I would do. I liked the engineer I reported to because he would explain what he wanted done and then let me go work on it until it needed approval or until I had a question. Also, the general atmosphere was great and everyone was very nice.

    Cons

    There really were no cons because it was a great experience for an engineer still in school and allowed me to learn a lot.

    Great COOP experience

    Current Employee - Engineering Intern in Horsham, PA

    I have been working at Ball Corporation as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Got to learn a lot about the engineering side of the company
    Got to learn a lot about management

    Cons

    The experience gotten out of the COOP is relative to how much you want to learn. This means if you try hard you will get a lot of good experience, if not you will end up not learning much and wasting your time.
