    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

    The only issue I ever had with the company is the rotating hours. They are hard to work when you have a family

    There are no real cons at this point that I have noticed. I do wish that maybe I could take on some more work, but nothing to major.

    I worked at Bemis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. They have little turnover due to the nature of their product (sophisticated plastic packaging for mainly the food industry and pharma). The managers I worked under where very supportive. Good corporate values.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support for continued training. It is mainly a Microsoft shop (not a necessary con but little opportunity for persons in Unix/Linux field).

    Pros

    Company is overall great to work for. Competitive pay and excellent benefits. Have never really felt like it is a dog eat dog kind of environment. Managers and interdepartmental and facility colleagues are supportive and helpful. You feel like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times when dealing with difficult customers. Company can feel a little too big from time to time which can make interaction with colleagues outside of your department or direct facility impersonal.
