    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay is okay.
    Some leadership listens some does not. Typical in a big company.
    R&D environment seems pretty secluded. Not a lot of interaction.

    Cons

    Big company issues. I have been through 2 downsizings with this company. They seem more concerned with Wall Street than the employees.

    OK place to work but does not pay as well as other companies.

    Pros

    Challenging work for the self-motivated. Company has grown significantly and has tried to keep the small company feel.

    Cons

    Stress of becoming a big company is evident in the working environment. Not always consistent direction from group leaders in job duties.

    Advice to Management

    There appears some disconnects in mid management levels in taking corporate strategic directions and implementing the logistics at lower levels of the organization.

Management at bemis promotes and fosters Safety programs the company truly put safety first. Good training for employee application also cogitative training, its like everything else in this country you have to work for it.

    Pros

    Many responsibilities to manage such as software updates, testing, identifying improvements for business sectors, developing changes per customer requirements, second level help desk support, supporting the internal customers when problems or bugs were uncovered, travel, and much more.

    Cons

    Top-heavy management, changes direction with the wind, continues to change the tires on the bus as it tries to drive down the road. No loyalty to the employee, failed to pay minimum pay rate for job description, pays less than industry standard, no matter how many hours or how much was accomplished, little positive feedback. Not supportive for employees over 40 years of age. Recent employee restructuring eliminated many over 40 professionals while still offering work for the same positions.

    Advice to Management

    Insist on rate of pay before starting or don't expect to make the minimum through once a year pay raises (April 1). Negotiate vacation time. Keep an updated resume.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Executive management
    Good coworkers
    Safety conscious
    Reasonable work life balance
    Plants are very well run

    Cons

    Some middle managers are very poor leaders and micromanagers
    Pay significantly lacking, greatly trails the market for similar experience and duties
    Not promoting from within. When employees aren't promoted, doesn't that reflect poorly on middle management?
    Regular layoffs and plant closings create an environment of always watching your back

    Advice to Management

    Look at the areas with high turnover, are all of those employees bad or dissatisfied for the same reason?

    When this company acquired Alcan, everything went down the drain...benefits, management, employee moral. I was used and abused. Just kept giving me more responsibilities with no intent of promoting.

    Pros

    Nothing. They're cheap and money grabbers. I'm glad I left this hell hole.

    Cons

    Everything and everybody. HR in Bellwood, stupid, no degree, favors offsprings of higher ups to do the easy office internships. Offsprings of plant workers are treated differently. It goes on and on.
