    Very Generous Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBall offers a very generous compensation and benefits package. The company provides ample development opportunities for those who are willing to put in the work. Ball is very generous in its charitable giving in the communities where it operates. The company has been around a long time and is built on a history of success. There is very low turnover at the company which speaks highly of the culture.

    ConsA large company where underperformers can get lost. It's low turnover can also be seen as a negative in that ideas and policies remain a bit stagnant over time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone, keep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    One of the best companies in the USA

    Industrial Electrician (Current Employee)
    North Tampa Heights, FL

    ProsGood wages. Heavy emphasis on Safety. Production work is four days on four days off, 12 hours a day 6 to 6. Ball has many operations all over the world, to include Aerospace.

    ConsHigh noise level. Monthly rotating shifts from days to nights. Very hot on the production floor. It IS Florida! This information applies to the Tampa plant only.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep turnover to a minimum.

    a great co-op experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI really enjoyed working here. There was a lot of work and business travel for an engineering co-op, a lot more than I expected I would do. I liked the engineer I reported to because he would explain what he wanted done and then let me go work on it until it needed approval or until I had a question. Also, the general atmosphere was great and everyone was very nice.

    ConsThere really were no cons because it was a great experience for an engineer still in school and allowed me to learn a lot.

    Great COOP experience

    Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
    Horsham, PA

    ProsGreat work environment
    Got to learn a lot about the engineering side of the company
    Got to learn a lot about management

    ConsThe experience gotten out of the COOP is relative to how much you want to learn. This means if you try hard you will get a lot of good experience, if not you will end up not learning much and wasting your time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementN/A

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
