    Pros

    It's a weekly paycheck. The insurance is adequate. They allow you all the OT you could possibly want. Ummmm.....there's honesty not much else.

    Cons

    If you work on the floor and don't have a college degree.....be prepared to pay the consequences for your short-comings! You will be bullied and discriminated against. Think management will help? Nope! They have set the example for the bullies to follow. They gave everyone their reviews. A week later they came back and posted a paper that showed everyone would get 1% less than the raise they were given. They also hire people in making nearly the same pay as those that have been there over 10 years. They appreciate nothing out of the "common folk."

    Advice to Management

    Wake up before you run this company into the ground! Start showing some concern and appreciation for those that work on the floor. Remember....if it weren't for us peons you wouldn't have a job.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for growth or different opportunities within the company. Pleased with new CEO and feel new vision takes company in the right direction. Great employees to work with.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are only in Fox Valley area of Wisconsin if not working in a manufacturing plant. Not a very diverse company.

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company Relatively flexible schedule

    Cons

    Office politics are disgustingly obvious. Was brought onboard as a contract worker with the potential for full time employment. Worked in the human resources department. One contract worker made friends with low level management and drove all other contractors out of the office. After she assassinated the character of everyone she saw as competition she was hired on. A month later she quit and went to another company.

    Advice to Management

    You are pretty bad at behavioral screening for a human resources department. Learn how to do you job and not buy into the office poisonous-snake. I am glad there were consequences and you probably sunk 40 grand in turnover costs. Take a bow. Hopefully you learned something from the experience.

    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

    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

    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.
