    I have been working at Pactiv full-time for 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!
