    Pros

    The pay is pretty good compared to market value. There is flex time and some work from home opportunities. Good employees at the lower levels.

    Cons

    The company as a whole lacks processes to make them more attractive. They do not value their employees. They do not like for employees to speak up. They want you to remain silent and do as your told. They lack responsibility and accountability in many aspects. Too lean in staff to be efficient. Too many decisions made at the management level who have no idea how it affects the everyday employee.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees. Encourage employees to speak up and give input where they feel things can improve. Hire people to improve the lack of processes. Encourage employees to take true ownership of issues that exist for improvement. Research how changes affect the average employee before making things a global standard.

    Management is awesome. A lot better then my older jobs. This place operates and runs the best as far as people go.

I will retire from here. Great job!

    Cons

    Challenges are the hours you have to work sometimes covering for another's vacation.

    Advice to Management

    nothing.

    Pros

    Challenging, some very talented people work at Rexam in BG. The facility is very nice and the equipment is state of the art.

    Cons

    Bottom line driven, do not really care about the employees, just a front for business as usual. Revolving door and high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Refine the diamond you have and stop growing through acquisition. The potential of the existing assets are incredible. Figure out what to do with them.

    Pros

    Rexam is the 800 lbs gorilla of packaging. Rexam has some super competitive products in the Pharma packaging sector. Rexam's former OI plastics knowledge base continues to be a beneficial force. The Franklin facility works with employees in most any family, medical or personal situation as far as time or working around issues. The low turn over at the Franklin facility provides a degree of stability.

    Cons

    Rexam's purchase of OI has allowed some unsavory elements to take advantage of the situation in Franklin. Education, Job Performance, and Experience are irrelevant at the Franklin facility. A small clique with limited outside experience, formal education or technical knowledge controls the facility. Recognition for a job well done is non existent. Age, Sex, and Racial discrimination are arguably rampant. I am a white male and uncomfortable with this. If you like "nepotism" Rexam Franklin is the organization for you.

    Advice to Management

    Please avoid the organized tours of the Franklin Facility. Visit the plant "unannounced" on Friday afternoons preferably so you can see how the plant management is noticeably absent from day to day operations.

    Ask workers at Rexam Franklin questions, WITHOUT PLANT MANAGEMENT (the clique) present. The plant management has been known to punish people for giving honest answers to senior managers after they left.

    Please insist that senior plant level managers achieve some degree of education before achieving the title of "manager". Most "managers" in Franklin do not have any more than a High School education, while their subordinates often have associates, bachelor degrees, and are continuing their education. Achieving any level of education in Franklin is actually a counter productive career move.
