    I have been working at WS Packaging Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The prevous Executive team hurt morale in many ways and resulted in a lot of good employees leaving. The new Executive team seems to have more common sense (which had been missing) and are much more approachable. They seems to be working improve the morale and teamwork and have made some changes already responding to concerns and/or strengthen the company as a whole. There is a better balance bettween what is good for company AND employees. The employee base is fantastic. There are many good employees who care about what they do and are great to work with. I have seen many of these hard working individuals progress through the years.

    Cons

    More could be done with training overall. Employees are trained to their specific job, but there could be additional training in soft skills or continued training to keep enhancing their skill/craft. There is still a lot of skepticism and morale issues which is lingering from the previous CEO and his team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep increasing the level of communication. The more we know the more we will feel like a team and the better we can work toward the end goal. Increasing the communication will increase employee involvement. Listen to the ideas and concerns of the employees to ensure they will continue to want to participate and get involved.
