    Sonoco Products was an amazing company with kind employees and tasks that challenge you to the next level.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Supportive co-workers
    -Great company ethics
    -Opportinities for travel
    -A chance to really learn about the products Sonoco manufactures
    -Great community to work within

    Cons-Corporate HQ location (Hartsville, SC)
    -Technology that is not up-to-date (e.g. Word 2007; aging computers)
    -Offices constantly being moved around

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe best part of Sonoco was how open the management staff was with fellow Sonoco employees. Each manager I encountered was very kind and helpful, while more than willing to explain terms or fundamentals that you do not quite understand. I feel this is a huge asset to the company and managers should continue this process; it makes employees feel like they are not alone.
