    Pros

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Category Specialist in Appleton, WI
    Current Employee - Category Specialist in Appleton, WI

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

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Executive management
    Good coworkers
    Safety conscious
    Reasonable work life balance
    Plants are very well run

    Cons

    Some middle managers are very poor leaders and micromanagers
    Pay significantly lacking, greatly trails the market for similar experience and duties
    Not promoting from within. When employees aren't promoted, doesn't that reflect poorly on middle management?
    Regular layoffs and plant closings create an environment of always watching your back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the areas with high turnover, are all of those employees bad or dissatisfied for the same reason?

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, decent benefits, 40 hour week for most employees, adequate pay for the area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth, unless you well connected. If you do get a promotion, it will only reflect your title, without change in pay. Poor communication from upper management. Company is behind on innovation side of things.
