    I have been working at Bemis Manufacturing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Bemis is the home of opportunity. There are many people who started out as operators, setup, sector leaders, etc., who now are mangers in their respective divisions. Hard work, tenacity and treating people with dignity and respect will create many opportunities for you at Bemis. Employee empowerment is alive and well at Bemis Manufacturing Company!!

    Cons

    Bemis has been around since 1901. From 1901 - 2014 there has never been a layoff, even when the economy a number of years ago took a nose dive, not one employee lost out on hours. The 40 hour work week remained in tact, and in fact, some overtime was still available on Saturdays! I guess the only Con might be that employees might be expected to work more than they wish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Under the direction of Peter Bemis, the company has flourished for many years. Since Peter's brother Richard Bemis has come back as President and CEO, the company has not missed a beat. Keep up the great work and lets finish the next 100 years with a flurry!

    I have been working at Bemis Manufacturing

    Pros

    Flexibility to set schedule, very friendly atmosphere. The company also has some growth potential for individuals looking to move up. Family orientated company.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a lower paying company for certain jobs. Slow to implement to technology, and even if it doesn't work they will spend loads of money just to keep it going instead of eating the initial flop

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

    Pros

    The company is financially strong. Being privately owned, they can take a longer term view on their business strategies.

    Cons

    There is a lack of leadership and no clear strategic direction.

    I have been working at Bemis Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Laid-back (for the most part) work environment.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Management doesn't care about employees, only themselves and how to cover their tracks to make themselves look better. They think nothing of throwing employees under the bus to get ahead.

    bad field to work in, no room to grow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take control over your workforce. Sometimes you need to fire people in order to keep the other good workers happy.

    I have been working at Bemis Manufacturing

    Pros

    offer overtime...if you want it...If you dont want it..they will force you sometimes.
    good part time job...hardly ever hire full time..therefore no bennies
    no layoffs..it gets slow and you could be moved tho
    ADF expects you to do alot of the work a setup should be doing..it is challenging but also stressfull.
    Feedback..but only the negative kind...not the good kind

    Cons

    see above comments for cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    2nd and 3rd need manager to make decisions...not sector leaders and setup
    Need to look at your salary people doing the ordering. always out of material...packaging..liquid color..which leads to early die changes...then the job goes in again when they get the stuff..Waste of time/money. Do these people get chewed out...I guess NOT! Happens alot !!!
    No positive feed back !!!!! All negative..A good employee often gets accused of making bad parts without proof/evidence...just go by what the next shift sector leader tells them...making a good employee fell worthless..thanks
    Managers try to force people to see internal nurse instead of seeking the medical attention they should have...people end up doing both..which costs more money!!!

    I dont think Peter or Dick have a clue what their managers are doing....or not doing!
