    There are great people in the company that has been owned by venture capitalists that squeeze money out of the operation

    I worked at Consolidated Container full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are great people that work there and the industry is competitive and the company is positioned well in the industry. There is good mobility and advancement for those that do a good job.

    Cons

    There was always constant pressure on costs and margin. The company had a bonus plan for many salaried staffers, but really never would pay out on it as the goals were beyond stretch goals most of the time. I only received one bonus in 5 years of employment there. There was a decidedly poor expenditure for R&M as well company-wide

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people and continue to invest in your equipment. Do not rely on capital when R&M could suffice and staff the facilities so that they can keep the equipment maintained.

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime for those who want or need it. Nice climate controlled production area. Lots of chances to work on holidays and scheduled vacation.

    Cons

    Constant turnover with both management and hourly workers. Management often has no clue about how to run production. Its the only plant where the operators do more maintenance the the maintenance personnel. There is no room for advancement and the "good buddy system" is in full blossom. There is no such thing as work-life balance and no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to learn the business and don't be in such a hurry to run off talent. Most importantly, treat all employees fairly.

    Pros

    CCC really respects "work-life balance."

    The work is varied and they really allow employees to "grow" their positions.

    They have a great tuition reimbursement program and truly work hard to develop their people.

    Employees are encouraged to have ideas and ask questions.

    Cons

    Internal communications are an opportunity for development.

    Pay isn't amazing, but the culture makes up for it.

    Pros

    Benefits are average.I can't think of anything good.

    Cons

    Vacation is a joke you use most of your time being paid for when you aren't schedule or if you do get a vacation they call you in if you don't come they threaten and intimidate you. Overtime if you are one of the favorites you will get to pick and choose. While others have to work the mandatory overtime or take the mandatory short time.Depends on supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fulton plant needs to be investigated as to why they have such a high turnover in employees.The female supervisors are highly incompetent as are most of the employees.There is very little glue left to hold the place together.Customer complaints aren't resolved.They are lied to.

    I have been working at Consolidated Container full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard it is fairly easy to get hired there. Also, if you speak little or no english, they will probably hire you since speaking english is not a requirement to work there. Safety issues are generally dealt with. The pay is decent but it tends to be on the low scale of the manufacturing industry.

    Cons

    There are no incentives/ bonuses for employees for meeting or exceeding production goals. If business is slow management will wait for you to come in for your shift and then send you home rather then call you up before hand. Pay raises are miniscule at best, a 30-35 cent raise tends to be the average. For the last few years the number of people on a shift has decreased so shifts run on the bare minimum number of people. When i started working there, machine operators ran 2 or 3 machines, now they generally have to run 4. Due to layoffs, down sizing people are expected to work harder for no significant increase in pay. While I like the people I work with, overall it is not a good work enviroment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live up to the company slogan of treating people with dignity and respect. Have common decency, people are not machines and if it wasnt for us, there would be no CCC and management would be out of a job.
