    Pros

    Sealed Air is a well-managed company focused on delivering innovation and value to its customers, and it does. The company has well-defined annual goals and review processes, and a standardized process for career development.

    Cons

    The acquisition two years ago of Diversey by Sealed Air has left legacy Diversey employees unsure of their role in the new Sealed Air Corp. Diversey has not focused enough recently on employee development and training, and some employees and uncertain what Sealed Air's long-term strategy for Diversey is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to define personal career development plans with direct reports, and work to improve employee training, both at hiring and on an on-going basis.

    Pros

    The flexibility in work hours, exposure to senior management and options in career for talented people. Many different units / countries around the globe.

    Cons

    a lot of re-orgs in recent years and with transition to Charlotte two more years to come. Very strategic yet sometimes take too long to execute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you keep your talented people by going above and beyond.

    Pros

    Non. We can't take vacation time even tho we've worked for it. Isn't that against the law?

    Cons

    Where do I start.... Mgmt are a complete joke. We are written up on stupid stuff, and I know it's not in the 'Company Handbook' not that fast. They're changing policies and not updating the handbook. We work to have time off which is the Law and HR/Mgmt says otherwise. I am sending another letter to ( Fox Carolina), since they think this corporate office is such big news. Well I have a Lot To Say! Managers and HR need to be removed ASAP!! I can't wait to leave this hostile work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to the employees one on one and ask them what's going on. Why are do many workers on medication, dying, heart attacks. Talk to them or trust me this will be in the media really fast. Act like you do care Corporate!
