    I have been working at Pactiv full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have a job (w/meager benefits considering how successful the company is)

    Cons

    First and foremost the people I work with have experienced the scorched earth called the Pactiv/Reynolds merger. Most of the trench warfare workers have all been with the company less then 18 mos. Management (if they've were lucky enough to survive the buyout) is cold and self-serving. Mid-management level is so ill-equiped to manage themselves let alone a team of people. The atmosphere is abusive, but it is known, accepted and tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would not waste my time offering. They know what the problems are but are more concerned about appearances than doing what's right.

    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.
