Good for getting your foot in the door, then get out.

I worked at Bemis full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Benefits are pretty good. Parking is good. Lots of places to go if you need to get away for lunch (if you are allowed).

Cons

No advancement for someone who isn't related to someone already in an advanced position or if you don't have a mechanical engineering degree. HR is a joke. If you have any issues they will not be handled appropriately or quietly. Management is slow to praise but very quick to pass the buck as well as the blame. Many managers can't manage and instead of being let go or demoted they are promoted or moved to manage a different angle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Step out of your comfort zone and let go those you know can't manage. Embrace those who are true leaders and have great knowledge. Respect those below you and respond to their innovation, as you claim the company is based on innovation. Remember your hourly employees sacrifice a lot with the swing shifts they work.
