I worked at Dart Container full-time for less than a year

Pros

Benefit package looked decent, but never got a chance to receive any benefits.

Cons

They watch every move you make and what time you did it.
I was told that dress code is business casual, ie: khakis, polo shirts, dress shoes, but other people got to wear jeans and/or t-shirts like Nike and Under Armour EVERY day.
Can't say the word "cute" about anyone or anything as it's constured as sexual harrasment. Can't comment on a baby picture, someone's hairstyle or shirt, etc. And if you even refer to someone working there or NOT even working there as 'cute', you're fired.

    Once an engineering playground, now quite miserable

    I worked at Dart Container

    Pros

    This is a family owned business, which can be a benefit. Generally speaking, projects that have visibility of the owners can be fast-tracked and avoid the usual bureaucracy of a public company. Most of the engineering staff are pleasant people, although not the 'cream of the crop' given the low compensation.

    Cons

    The morale is very poor among most of the engineering staff. Creativity is usually stifled by the oppressive management style. The structure of the engineering department is quite top-heavy. If you are concerned about salary, don't bother with Dart. The M.O. seems to be focused on filling positions with people who are not qualified to go elsewhere, and thus cannot demand competitive salaries. There are individuals who are exceptions to this rule at Dart (talented and not concerned with compensation), and Dart is lucky to have had them on staff for 20-30 years. For most others with any real expertise, tenure seems to be about 2-5 years at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is very important in an engineering driven company. If an engineer is not rewarded for his accomplishments, he will learn to choose the easiest solution instead of the best solution. You have forgotten the legacy of this company, and the inventive entrepreneurial spirit is slipping away. Better do something to catch it, or your competitive advantage will slip away with it.
