    Coating excellence not a fan of free speech. Failure inevitable.

    Rewinder Operator (Former Employee)
    Wrightstown, WI

    ProsDecent pay. Great people on the floor to work with. They attempt to use a legacy approach to training with little success.

    ConsDon't expect much from anyone above your supervisor. Ignorance is abound. Shifts change with little to no notice. They claim priorities are safety, quality, speed in that order, however supervisors are only worried about speed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave your home problems at the door. Trust your operators know what they are doing and let them work

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Think before joining company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Wrightstown, WI

    Prosvery good work / family balance
    good pay

    ConsSenior Management is unacceptable and operates on a good boy network. As a growing company that was effective but once cei was scaled, there needed to be experienced, non emotional leadership.

    cei is growing without any strategy that people don't know what is expected of them.

    There is significant fighting among departments, driven by in experienced managers and good boy network.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and start acting like professionals. Treat everyone with respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Time to move on

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Wrightstown, WI

    ProsFriendly people, lots of social gatherings, very open to vacations and time away from the office.

    ConsLoosing its reputation and market share due to stupid and easily fixable issues.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Jury is still out. Willing to give the place the benefit of the doubt.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Wrightstown, WI

    ProsA nonunion company that is willing to invest in the company by purchasing new equipment. I applaud their actions by keeping jobs locally.

    ConsMy main concern would be that they are using this down turn in the economy to force concessions from their employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Was great...but now I wouldn't recommend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Wrightstown, WI

    ProsNon-union manufacturer that can compete with foreign competition and provide the best service due to leveraging domestic location

    ConsUnless the employee can crack the clique that exists within the internal organization, you're not going anywhere fast.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEvaluate employees fairly, promote from within, provide incentives to excel, be honest with employees, pay productive staff better

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Work hard, get nowhere.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsA lot of good talent to work with.

    ConsA tight clique. Advancements if you know the right people. Continued raise/profit sharing freezes. Company expanding, but at employee expense. Some management needs to be replaced as they dont have the experience needed to manage people. Bad insurance for a company this size.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look at nagement. Company will lose more good employees if changes aren't made.

    Disappointing culture!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUS company competing in coated products successfully with modern assets. Forays into woven bag sales and flexible packaging have been very good strategic moves.

    ConsManagement is subpar and this undermines the whole culture. Communication and overall professional development needs attention. Lots of givebacks by employees in last two years in the way of salary, benefits, quality/life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove culture before all the talent has left!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
