    I have been working at AptarGroup full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I work at the Cary campus. Most of my co-workers are pleasant and easy to work with. Healthcare benefits are plentiful and affordable

    Cons

    We are losing many perks - bonuses, paid birthdays off, lunches, product giveaways ... Management keeps the place in constant state of change, moving from one program to the next with few results other than cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. Let's get the workers working and the slugs out the door.

    I have been working at AptarGroup as an intern

    Pros

    i worked in Mukwonago, WI plant and loved the atmosphere. Everyone is very friendly and easy to work with. The employees are relaxed and hard working. Everyone is treated with the utmost respect and all the employees are valued.

    Cons

    Sometimes I would say the company spends their money too loosely. While this can be viewed as a negative I dont think it is. There are lots of lunches and free product giveaways which I think keep employees very happy.

    Company culture changing to a cut throat environment. No core values. Older workers should watch their backs.

    I have been working at AptarGroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    the people who work in Stratford are a good team and dedicated to the success of the business. Some really talented individuals.

    Cons

    The moral compass of the company needs to be questioned. Recent promotions are to the same people that are the 'party people', going out drinking every week with the boss. Senior leaders need to set a better example for the rest of the organization. What was once a good company has deteriorated so much with the current management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new leadership team in NA

    Current Employee - Machine Operator/Production Inspector in Mukwonago, WI

    I have been working at AptarGroup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The job pays well compared to other companies in the plastic injection molding industry and if you show interest and are a good worker there is opportunity to advance in the company. There is very little turnover and most of the senior management has been with the company for over 20 years and most started in entry level positions.

    Cons

    If you are going to be working on the production floor the hours are long (12 hour shifts). Also, as a production floor employee, I feel that it is very difficult to get the mangers to take floor workers ideas for improvement seriously. The plant feels like it is segregated by office workers and production floor workers. Also the HR department is awful, the worst I have ever worked with, they are rude and rarely get things done correctly the first time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management should take ideas for improvement from production floor workers more seriously, I mean we are the ones that spend 40+ hours a week on the floor, we have a lot of good ideas.
