    Pros

    The culture of this company is wonderful, very inclusive and they want you to suceed. They genuinely care about how you are doing, and there is definetly room for advancing within the company.

    Cons

    There are no real cons at this point that I have noticed. I do wish that maybe I could take on some more work, but nothing to major.

    Pros

    Great benefits. They have little turnover due to the nature of their product (sophisticated plastic packaging for mainly the food industry and pharma). The managers I worked under where very supportive. Good corporate values.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support for continued training. It is mainly a Microsoft shop (not a necessary con but little opportunity for persons in Unix/Linux field).

    Pros

    Company is overall great to work for. Competitive pay and excellent benefits. Have never really felt like it is a dog eat dog kind of environment. Managers and interdepartmental and facility colleagues are supportive and helpful. You feel like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times when dealing with difficult customers. Company can feel a little too big from time to time which can make interaction with colleagues outside of your department or direct facility impersonal.

    Treated employees like family, great travel opportunities, everyone willing to answer questions

    Only thing I didn't like was the location, it just wasn't somewhere I wanted to be.

    Pros

    I love most aspects of the job at Bemis even during the tough economic times, they stayed positive.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower that what can be achieved at similar positions elsewhere in the area. It is much more difficult to advance in the manufacturing side of the business, than on the corporate side.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the people with the most seniority were treated the worst.

    Pros

    My daily responsibilities included much hands on experience while I was only at my desk roughly 20% of the time. Each day brought a new challenge to keep things interesting and fast paced.

    Cons

    There was often a noticeable disconnect between salaried and hourly unionized employees which could slow progress or even bring it to a halt. The job was in a small town with not much to do for a young professional.

    Advice to Management

    Time being "on call" for technical support could be better managed between multiple engineers and machine lines.
