Good company gone bad!

Process Technician (Former Employee)

I worked at Sealed Air Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCryovac-Great, Sealed Air Cryovac-OK, Sealed Air-Poor

ConsTreats hourly paid employees as red haired step children. Technical levels (HOURLY PAID) reduced from 5 to 3 levels. Top pay reduced by very large amounts in an effort to get rid of long time hourly paid employees. No raises for most technical employees. Boosting stock price more important than anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend at least a little money on R & D and quality improvements. Continuing to eliminate employees and reducing spending is the wrong path to take.

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

Very bad for temp employee for the Reading Manufacturing Company

Temporary Packer (Former Employee)
Reading, PA

I worked at Sealed Air Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is excellent for the amount of work you actually do compared to other factory jobs. There happens to be a lot of over time during some periods in the year.

ConsManagement is extremely bad. Lack of future incentive and very disorganized. Employees gossip a lot like in high school. Temp employees are treated unjustly.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a better relationship with tenure and temp employees. It will tremendously help quality and quantity in terms of production.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Inconsistant accountability

Materials Manager (Former Employee)
Louisville, KY

I worked at Sealed Air Corporation full-time for more than a year

ProsSome workers within the organization have very strong work ethics & are willing to help out where needed.

ConsManagement does not work as a team to solve problems. They look at finger pointing and someone to point blame to. Equipment that is used is very old and they do not have a competent maintenance department.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart working as a team & enforcing cut offs with customer orders.

overworked and micromanaged

Process Technician (Current Employee)
Seneca, SC

I have been working at Sealed Air Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood pay, good benefits and vacation time off. That is all the pros to process technician position.

Consmicromanged in every step, unfair and biased evaluations to save company from paying you highest amount of profit sharing yearly. Poor maintenace on machines but managers expect you to produce high quality product? Morale is terrible, people stay for the money and benefits. Not a career job

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communications!!! Trust employees more. Go back to team environment concept instead of "do what I say or else" management. Promote high performing employees more. Stop making up new rules as you go, if you do make new rules then communicate them effectively!

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

Was the Best Packaging Company

Finance (Former Employee)
Saddle Brook, NJ

I worked at Sealed Air Corporation for more than 8 years

ProsGreat people and good mid-management. Positive changes in recent Senior management announcements and hope they can pull it off. Leader in Packaging & innovation.

ConsCurrent CEO (BH) has no vision and no leadership, Is a micro manager that shouldn't have lasted this long. Company loosing focus and moving away from its core competency. Loosing good talent to internal struggle between Old Sealed Air and Diversey management.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on employees and customer and supplier relationships. Supply Chain structure is dysfunctional in North America. Need a big shake up in IT. Took too long to implement SAP and result is a poor implementation. In-source and consolidate Shared Service Centers and outsource IT operation. HR or P&P structure is a joke and need a BIG shake up.... only helped support pay-raise to senior management and everyone else left behind.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
