    Rexam Needs To Bypass "The Clique" in the Franklin Indiana Plant

    I have been working at Rexam

    Pros

    Rexam is the 800 lbs gorilla of packaging. Rexam has some super competitive products in the Pharma packaging sector. Rexam's former OI plastics knowledge base continues to be a beneficial force. The Franklin facility works with employees in most any family, medical or personal situation as far as time or working around issues. The low turn over at the Franklin facility provides a degree of stability.

    Cons

    Rexam's purchase of OI has allowed some unsavory elements to take advantage of the situation in Franklin. Education, Job Performance, and Experience are irrelevant at the Franklin facility. A small clique with limited outside experience, formal education or technical knowledge controls the facility. Recognition for a job well done is non existent. Age, Sex, and Racial discrimination are arguably rampant. I am a white male and uncomfortable with this. If you like "nepotism" Rexam Franklin is the organization for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please avoid the organized tours of the Franklin Facility. Visit the plant "unannounced" on Friday afternoons preferably so you can see how the plant management is noticeably absent from day to day operations.

    Ask workers at Rexam Franklin questions, WITHOUT PLANT MANAGEMENT (the clique) present. The plant management has been known to punish people for giving honest answers to senior managers after they left.

    Please insist that senior plant level managers achieve some degree of education before achieving the title of "manager". Most "managers" in Franklin do not have any more than a High School education, while their subordinates often have associates, bachelor degrees, and are continuing their education. Achieving any level of education in Franklin is actually a counter productive career move.
