This is a place with a tremendous amount of potential, but it lacks a strategic direction.

I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Large global company, tight knit community, pleasant mid-west town. Many different job types with an abundance of opportunity for a meticulous individual who likes a corporate environment.

Cons

Very unstable work environment for leaders, lacks direction and consistency. Changes in key leadership roles are frequent and disrupting. You often feel you are protecting your job and not willing to take risks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a direction and stick to it. Support your leaders and encourage them to think differently.

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

    Pros

    Most people are great to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits not as good as they used to be. The CEO is all about cutting heads to improve profits in the short term. Most people fear for their jobs since there has been so many restructures since 2008. They currently send engineering projects out to the lowest bidder instead of in-house engineering. Most all the people that knew the insides of the manufacturing plants have been let go or left on their own.

    I worked at Owens-Illinois full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is a ow cost of living in the area and there are certainly opportunities to be on large enterprise projects if you get in the right position in the organization.

    Cons

    There is not a clear career path and when you get in a role it is very hard to move up or move out of that role. There is not a group of college grads being brought in to back fill and allow for others to move up.
