    I have been working at Bemis full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Bemis (Less than a year)

    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

    there are a lot of opportunities for career growth inside the company. Jobs are posted internally and there are many different locations available.

    Cons

    Supervisors are promoted with little or no management experience and HR does nothing to support them and train them on how to be effective leaders.

    Advice to Management

    human resources should provide we're ship support to all levels of management.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
