    Pros

    Bemis treats employees with dignity, respect, and a professionalism unmatched in the country. Bemis finds, trains, and keeps excellent employees.

    If you enjoy the northern states, like Minnesota or Wisconsin, then Bemis headquarters and location of employment may be a perfect fit for you.

    I have been working at Bemis

    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.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There have been a lot of changes at Bemis and many consider change as a negative. However, they seem to be improving efficiencies and making choices to be more competitive. If keeping the company competitive and profitable means we all keep our jobs, I'm all for it.

    There is opportunity to get good experience in several areas to advance career.

    Cons

    Employees get training and experience, but the pay does not always reflect experience. Employees who are with the company for a long time tend to get penalized on pay in comparison to employees hired externally.

    Communication continues to be a concern. Management and Neenah Corporate tend to keep secrets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your loyal employees with compensation, don't penalize them.

    Transparency can be a good thing! Not everything is confidential.

    OK place to work but does not pay as well as other companies.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Bemis

    Pros

    Challenging work for the self-motivated. Company has grown significantly and has tried to keep the small company feel.

    Cons

    Stress of becoming a big company is evident in the working environment. Not always consistent direction from group leaders in job duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There appears some disconnects in mid management levels in taking corporate strategic directions and implementing the logistics at lower levels of the organization.
