    Job has great potential

    QA Inspector (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of opportunities to grow if you choose to do so.

    Cons12 hour shifts are kind of tough if you want to go back to school.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    No Empowerment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, IL

    ProsPrivate company that still has family values
    Company values present employees over outside candidates
    Lots of areas to contribute
    Fair compensation
    Pleasant work environment

    ConsNo growth for women
    Upper management not progressive and company doesn't replace the ineffective members
    Upper management believes it is responsible for growth and bottom ranks are responsible decline in growth.
    Upper management is insulated and lacks humility.
    Company struggles with growth because they continue to operate with poor practices and leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring in a consultant and listen to them.
    Terminate 75% of your upper management and replace they with qualified individuals with public company experience.
    It's admirable that the company has moved internal employees into the upper management but some of these individuals so not have the knowledge to move the business.
    Set goals and terminate those individuals in upper management that are not performing. Stop promoting and compensating them for poor performance.
    Upper management sets the tone and culture for the rest of the organization. Until the dynamics of this group changes the organization will continue to struggle.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Great environment and culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsThere is a real focus on work/life balance, health and wellness, and giving back to the community. For the most part, everyone is pleasant to be around.

    ConsDepending on your skills and interests, growth opportunities may be limited. There are a few people in leadership positions within certain departments who are very difficult to work with (they are missing good "communication" skills) and do not take criticism well and refuse to change. This may hinder growth in certain areas.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere could be more focus on professional development and leadership development for employees. While there are several people who are on board with this, there is definitely room to grow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work/Life Balance can exist

    (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsI enjoy working at Printpack for several reason: the overall company culture and values, the growth that I'm experiencing in my position and the ability to keep learning even more. My boss is great, easy to talk to and work for/with in my job. I like the fact that Printpack understands what work/life balance means.

    ConsThe communication across the board could use an upgrade.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    i would describe my experience at printpack as a very satisfying job.

    Utility (Current Employee)
    Bloomington, IN

    ProsThat you are able to advance in the company very well. i also like the fact that my supervisor rick hoke keeps us informed of all changes that helps us do our job more effiently.

    Consthe only downside of working at printpack is the fact that most of the employes seem to work against one other instead of working with each other to make things work better.

    Advice to Senior Managementto get out on the floor and work beside some of the employes to see how things really works.Also get out and talk to employes and find out how they think things could go to make jobs go alot better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great work/life balance!

    Process Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone at Printpack realizes that everyone has a life outside of the organization and respects that wholeheartedly. If you have a doctors appointment, need half a day to move your apartment, whatever... the other people on the team don't mind and are willing to even help you if need be.

    ConsThe knowledge base is mostly experiential and there is still a lot of room to improve to get to a true, lean environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStand for something, don't be wishy-washy on things that we consider to be our core values. Remain consistent above all else.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
