    I worked at Appvion as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    In my role I was allowed a large amount of flexibility and was able to work within multiple different departments.

    Cons

    Not a lot of employee movement. The industry as a whole is stagnant, but Appvion has positioned themselves better than others in the area.

  2. Not too bad. Every company could use a better plan from time to time, but its semi stable.

    I worked at Appvion as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the team at the Roaring Spring Mill was a pleasant experience. Safety concern is good and only improving. People are generally friendly and willing to help each other if needed.

    Cons

    As an intern, I feel that I had the potential to contribute a bit more. The program I was in was a rather new one, which makes my situation understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend having a more solidified program by including weekly follow-ups for the interns. Possible offer a challenge project.

  6. Good place to "settle down"

    Pros

    Smaller company, have liberties to work on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities are few and far between.
    All-too-often swings in sales volume = unstable environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to fundamentals.
