    Good place to start and get experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with, decent benefits, 40 hour week for most employees, adequate pay for the area.

    ConsNot a lot of opportunity for growth, unless you well connected. If you do get a promotion, it will only reflect your title, without change in pay. Poor communication from upper management. Company is behind on innovation side of things.

    Management doesn't have a clue what is going on.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Oshkosh, WI

    ProsPay is decent. Hours are available for a regular paycheck.

    Consmanagement is not very informed, doesn't know what is going on as far as the job goes. Management plays favorites and there is no one to voice concerns to who will actually listen. As far as promotions, they will hire outside of the department and even out of the company and train that individual instead of hiring a honest, hard working employee who has been doing the job for 7 years. Wish there was upper management who cared enough to know what is going on and know that logistic wise, they are losing a ton of money. Money is being wasted on new signage and new parking lots for corporate but cant make the lots bigger for the semis for business purposes. Many semis lined up down the road because there is not enough room to enter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet management out of the company who do not know what they are doing. Make sure if they are managing a team, they know how to operate the machinery themselves. There is so much going wrong on the inside and there is no way for employees to be heard other than dealing with a manger who doesn't know whats going on or going to HR who has no idea how operations work on the inside either. Is there a CEO who cares to know. Would be willing to discuss!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent work environment with great people

    Process Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people are great to work with, and the environment encourages everyone to succeed. There are numerous opportunities to work in different areas and find the place that you enjoy most.

    ConsSalaries are lower that what can be achieved at similar positions elsewhere in the area. It is much more difficult to advance in the manufacturing side of the business, than on the corporate side.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to salary levels for other major employers in the area.

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

    Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits, lots of structure (which can also be a con).

    ConsNot convinced that the company values employees as much as they claim they do, too strict with job pay ranges.

    Good

    Engineer (Former Employee) Terre Haute, IN

    ProsGreat people and culture, good work life balance, didn't bother you with wasted meetings and beaurocratic nonsense. Let you do your work, and get it done without micromanaging. Excellent place to grow and learn from. Great on cross traning and giving opportunties to advance via different departments.

    ConsAlways pays on the low side of the industry, part of HR strategy. But acceptable since it is low stress and well managed by good people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Non Caring Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsUsed to be a really good company to work for till they merged with Alcan

    ConsCustomer Service in Hazleton, Pa was let go with little compassion from upper management. We had the choice of moving or taking the most awful severance pay ever. Your job is not safe unless you work in WI, fake you know what your doing because you have a degree from an Ivy League School and know how to cry when the time suits you, or you are a young person who can push out a senior person. This company does not care about you. stay Away!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach. ethics, trust. Do you even know what that is? Your business decision affected a lot of people and families

    Manufacturing Office

    (Former Employee)

    Prosplant co-workers are helpful and long-term.

    ConsCorporate doesn't respect plant employees. it's all about them, their numbers and implementing their goals.... all corporate departments don't work together, therefore 80 different initiatives need to done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncorporate ethics, morals, and values into your tasks.

    Communication Problems and Slow Response to Questions

    Logistics (Former Employee)

    ProsAtmosphere is friendly. Rate of pay is okay. Opportunity to advance if you play the game their way. Occasionally proactive to situations.

    ConsManagement has HUGE problems communicating effectively or accurately to their employees or perspective (contract) employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to tell the truth and not WALK on your employees. Remember you came from somewhere.
