    Good pay and benefits

    I worked at Printpack

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits!
    Extensive safety training and focus serves as a good resume enhancement and selling point for future opportunities.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts can translate to long work weeks if not scheduled on a rotating shift (depends on location and staffing)
    Pushed continously for production

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers tend to be insensitive to the need for notice for working overtime/weekends

    I worked at Printpack full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company takes care of long-term employees, there is room to grow if you're ambitious and willing to make your path (and find good promoters), the company has a strong reputation in the packaging industry. Great HQ location in Atlanta, with lots to do. A lot of good managers will be very supportive of work-life balance. The culture depends on the location and department, but there are a lot of younger people and a willingness to try new things and improve.

    Cons

    A bit of a good old boy network at the top, and a few high-level players that probably would have been let go in other companies. If you're a woman or a minority, you will probably hit a glass ceiling several at or below the director level. Increases in pay can be a bit low, holding long-term employees below new market compensation levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best teams benefit from fresh perspectives, including at the top. Poor managers are noticed and that hurts morale.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Bring 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.

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    Depending 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 ManagementAdvice

    There 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.

    I have been working at Printpack as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    The communication across the board could use an upgrade.
