    I worked at Pactiv full-time


    Good 401k match (6%), people within department generally helpful. Decent growth potential if you are in sales.


    Very insular company with little collaboration. If you are not in sales, lots of dead-end jobs with little career advancement. Company makes a lot of money but does not seem to value employees. Several people have to attend multiple meetings each day without a working laptop because it isn't "in budget" but yet, they made 500+ million in EBITDA last year. Pactiv had layoffs in 2011, two rounds of layoffs in 2014 (despite the high earnings) and environment is very unstable right now. People generally afraid to speak up for fear of losing job. Very minimal annual increases (2%) and minimal increases when promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up and share strategies. Spend more money on your employees and they will become more valuable to the organization. If you want to hear what people really think than do away with the town hall format; get to know the people. Remember who helped build Pactiv into the company it is today. Doing "more with less" only works if you have the technology to back it up. Otherwise the good recruits will eventually leave.
