Current Employee - Finance in Chicago, IL

I have been working at Pactiv full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

compensation is above industry average
location is not bad if you live on the north side of Chicago
benefits are in-line with the industry
corporate location has on-site cafeteria

Cons

career development is lacking, as is opportunities to network outside the organization
lack of flexible work schedules limits work life balance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Seek fresh thoughts/experience in the ranks of senior management. Old guard is slightly out of touch.

    I worked at Pactiv

    Pros

    The benefit package was nice, including flma, vacation, insurance, 401k. They have a set pay scale so you know how much you will make, without it being at the discretion of someone else.

    Cons

    Rotating shifts including two Weeks of day shift then two Weeks of night shift with only 12 hour shifts. Even with industrial Size air conditioner s it was extremely HOT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work there 15 years!
