    Pros

    Ball offers excellent salary and benefits. There are consistent raises and promotions. The company has a lot of respect for work/life balance. Lots of cool projects and interesting technology to work on.

    Cons

    Senior management are all very complacent, and there is no real ambition to improve the state of the business. One customers has described the president as "retired in place", which is probably an appropriate description. It can be difficult to take on new roles and achieve career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When leaders are under-performing move them out of the company, or at least to a place where they can do less damage. Give more responsibility to people with high potential. Look at all of the skill sets and technologies that are available in each of the SBU's and cross-pollinate where its appropriate.
