    Keep the unions out of the shop to keep a positive attitude in the work place and keep productivity up.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love most aspects of the job at Bemis even during the tough economic times, they stayed positive.

    Cons

    Salaries 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 ManagementAdvice

    Seems like the people with the most seniority were treated the worst.

    Former Employee - Process Engineer Coop in Neenah, WI

    I worked at Bemis as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My daily responsibilities included much hands on experience while I was only at my desk roughly 20% of the time. Each day brought a new challenge to keep things interesting and fast paced.

    Cons

    There was often a noticeable disconnect between salaried and hourly unionized employees which could slow progress or even bring it to a halt. The job was in a small town with not much to do for a young professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time being "on call" for technical support could be better managed between multiple engineers and machine lines.

    Good Company

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There have been a lot of changes at Bemis and many consider change as a negative. However, they seem to be improving efficiencies and making choices to be more competitive. If keeping the company competitive and profitable means we all keep our jobs, I'm all for it.

    There is opportunity to get good experience in several areas to advance career.

    Cons

    Employees get training and experience, but the pay does not always reflect experience. Employees who are with the company for a long time tend to get penalized on pay in comparison to employees hired externally.

    Communication continues to be a concern. Management and Neenah Corporate tend to keep secrets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your loyal employees with compensation, don't penalize them.

    Transparency can be a good thing! Not everything is confidential.

    Pay attention to salary levels for other major employers in the area.
