    Pros

    Friendly work atmosphere. Small teams enable close, cooperative efforts on R&D projects. Great leadership and right amount of independence provided.

    Cons

    I cant think of any at this point. I might be able to comment after some more time. It is a company in transition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to prioritize and value long-term R&D

    I worked at Bemis full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Union shop where pay is great. Bemis has many positions and locations. It used to be a great place to work before the Alcan acquisition.

    Cons

    Work environment is hostile. Employees measured on metrics that no human can successfully succeed. Allows management to fire anyone they don't like. Plant manager refuses to get to know anyone that is not in inner management circle. Employees without degrees are disrespected. Almost 40% office turnover rate this past year.

    Advice to Management

    Value ALL of your employees. Managing by fear produces great results for a couple of years but in the long run, the company will suffer due to the loss of human resources.

    Pros

    Time goes by quickly.steady work easy to find your routine and complete tasks assigned to you.

    Cons

    forced progression..they can move you anywhere anytime..make you go to 12 hour shifts.move you to another dept.an a days notice..the favorites get treated great.while regular average workers get the crap end of the work.they can move you up to opetator anytime they see fit.even though you do not desire a job change.arrogant life long employees treat new people like garbage .yelling even screaming at them expecting them to know what they know.

    Advice to Management

    be honest..dont lull trainees into thinking they will have time to grow into the job.dont just throw employees into full workload alone when they are clearly not ready..also rules should be consistent for everyone.
