Company going in the wrong direction

Prefer Not to Say (Current Employee)

ProsPays a reasonable working wage

ConsThe "corporate culture" has changed and not for the better. Ball used to genuinely care about its employees. Now it only seems concerned with keeping investors happy. Almost all, if not all, union plants have closed, while large amounts of money funneled into operations/startups in foreign countries.
Mandatory overtime, frequent use of temp employees with no experience, then management complaining when production numbers are down.
Disturbing pattern of finding nit-picky reasons to let go of experienced employees only to replace them with outsiders (friends of management) or piling more work on existing employees. Bidding on internal openings is a joke. Policies tend to favor the slackers over the people who actually show up to do their jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at how the company was run a decade ago and aim for a similar module.

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

    Good company, but there's concern about its direction.

    I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: The company has decent benefits and fair salaries including a pension plan. Most management is great to work for. Pleasant work environment with lots of… Cons: Employee loyalty and length of service is not rewarded. New breed of executives are mostly concerned about themselves and not the company. Major effort underway… Advice to Senior Management: Replace the CIO. He's a horrific manager who is egotistical, derisive, and blind to researched facts & opinions that don't coincide… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
