    Pros

    The company is great place to work. All of my co-workers were always more than willing to assist when needed. Working hours could be negotiated when needed to help me with any personal matters. Compensation was fair and in-line with market value.

    Cons

    Working in IT with a global company did require some off-hours support. This was expected and my supervisor was always sensitive to this.

    Pros

    Great company and great leadership. Very much a team atmosphere and the benefit are great. I would recommend Bemis to anyone. This is a great company to work for with great leaders.

    Cons

    I can not think of any real negatives. Just the location. The Fox Valley is a great place to raise a family and most of the locations for Bemis are in the Fox Valley. There is nothing bad to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    I think everything it going well. The employees are engaged and the management team is onboard with what needs to happen to make the company great. There is nothing to complain about. From the hourly employees up to senior leadership.

    Pros

    Great company that continues to invest and grow. Rock solid history of performance. High performance culture really starting to take shape.

    Cons

    Legacy systems tend to make some back office functions more diffucult then they need to be. Sometimes the conversative nature of the company delays hiring when there are needs for additional positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path you are on. High performance culture and investing for the future. Developing the best Human capital and the reinvesting in the best equipment will set the path for profitable growth in the future.

    Pros

    Global company that has a small company family feel to it. Bemis allows most employees to leave to take care of family or personal issues with no questions asked. Company is progessive with technology which allows you to work with a lot of great technologies. Very little micromanagement which allows you the freedom to do your job without someone staring over your shoulder all of the time. They tend to give you "cost of living" increase every year.

    Cons

    IT does not have a ton of visibility from the Senior Level Management which allows for a lack in urgency in keeping up with needs especially in the facilities. This is also caused by the fact that IT has done such a good job of meeting the needs of the company that there is no perceived problem. The separation of IT between Neenah and Oshkosh creates a disconnect between what to two areas are working on which can cause issues. Certain divisions or departments have too leniency to do their own things which creates support issues and undermines policies. Salaries tend to be 10-20% below industry for the size of the company. No review process just standard raises.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great environment and add value by giving IT the tools they need. Do a salary review based on what the employees are doing not what their title is and compare it to the rest of the industry. Get IT department back to one facility.

    Pros

    Worldwide leader in plastics manufacturing. Very large company. Good benefits. I am glad to work for such a stable company.

    Cons

    I believe there are times when the sales force and the rest of the company don't communicate as well as they should.

    Pros

    I felt there was great interaction between departments to maintain a cutting edge within the industry. The manufacturing facility in Indiana managed to recover during economic challenges that required substantial downsizing.

    Cons

    It was very difficult finding opportunities for advancement. Most exempt employees worked very long hours on a regular basis, particularly during the economic hard times.
