    Pros

    Time goes by quickly.steady work easy to find your routine and complete tasks assigned to you.

    Cons

    forced progression..they can move you anywhere anytime..make you go to 12 hour shifts.move you to another dept.an a days notice..the favorites get treated great.while regular average workers get the crap end of the work.they can move you up to opetator anytime they see fit.even though you do not desire a job change.arrogant life long employees treat new people like garbage .yelling even screaming at them expecting them to know what they know.

    Advice to Management

    be honest..dont lull trainees into thinking they will have time to grow into the job.dont just throw employees into full workload alone when they are clearly not ready..also rules should be consistent for everyone.

    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 company that continues to invest and grow. Rock solid history of performance. High performance culture really starting to take shape.

    Cons

    Legacy systems tend to make some back office functions more diffucult then they need to be. Sometimes the conversative nature of the company delays hiring when there are needs for additional positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path you are on. High performance culture and investing for the future. Developing the best Human capital and the reinvesting in the best equipment will set the path for profitable growth in the future.

    Pros

    Was a great company to work for when it was Perfecseal Inc.( Before Bemis bought it.)

    Cons

    Plant is closing at the end of 2015

    Advice to Management

    Big mistake closing the PA plant and trying to relocate to WI. You will be losing all the experience, add new coating method is unproved.

    Pros

    Great company and great leadership. Very much a team atmosphere and the benefit are great. I would recommend Bemis to anyone. This is a great company to work for with great leaders.

    Cons

    I can not think of any real negatives. Just the location. The Fox Valley is a great place to raise a family and most of the locations for Bemis are in the Fox Valley. There is nothing bad to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    I think everything it going well. The employees are engaged and the management team is onboard with what needs to happen to make the company great. There is nothing to complain about. From the hourly employees up to senior leadership.

    Pros

    there are a lot of opportunities for career growth inside the company. Jobs are posted internally and there are many different locations available.

    Cons

    Supervisors are promoted with little or no management experience and HR does nothing to support them and train them on how to be effective leaders.

    Advice to Management

    human resources should provide we're ship support to all levels of management.

    Pros

    It's a weekly paycheck. The insurance is adequate. They allow you all the OT you could possibly want. Ummmm.....there's honesty not much else.

    Cons

    If you work on the floor and don't have a college degree.....be prepared to pay the consequences for your short-comings! You will be bullied and discriminated against. Think management will help? Nope! They have set the example for the bullies to follow. They gave everyone their reviews. A week later they came back and posted a paper that showed everyone would get 1% less than the raise they were given. They also hire people in making nearly the same pay as those that have been there over 10 years. They appreciate nothing out of the "common folk."

    Advice to Management

    Wake up before you run this company into the ground! Start showing some concern and appreciation for those that work on the floor. Remember....if it weren't for us peons you wouldn't have a job.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for growth or different opportunities within the company. Pleased with new CEO and feel new vision takes company in the right direction. Great employees to work with.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are only in Fox Valley area of Wisconsin if not working in a manufacturing plant. Not a very diverse company.
