Current Employee - Machine Operator in Low Moor, VA

I have been working at MeadWestvaco (more than 8 years)

Pros

Above average wages. Adequate health care benefits. $401K with employer matching and pension plan. Opportunity to move up fairly quickly. Stable company.

Cons

Permanent rotating shift work, the Southern Swing Rotation at this plant. The work is inherently dangerous, can require a lot of mandatory overtime and can be very hot (100+) in the summertime.

    I worked at MeadWestvaco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great to be part of a company that is on the cutting edge packaging solutions. Good employee benefits with fair compensation. A high emphasis on work safety. The branch had a small company feel with large corporate backing.

    Cons

    Hard to advance without relocating. Few employee reviews. Sometimes hard to know what to improve on. Paper products on decline. Division did not fit with corporate vision to adapt to a more technologically based society.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More interaction between between locations may improve operational procedures.

    Work Life Balance is non existent. Structure is archaic

    I have been working at MeadWestvaco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Too many cliques. Not in the "cool" crowd, you will not succeed.
    Unnecessary travel for things that could be handled by teleconference or other cutting edge technology available to all of the employees.
    NO WORK LIFE BALANCE AT ALL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the sourcing organization there has been feedback from exit interviews about how rude the group is and how cliqish it is, with no changes. Stop being a part of the problem management and be a part of the solution.
