Pros

Silgan is a great company with an excellent management team. Tom Synder is the new President and he knows every aspect of the company, working his way up the ladder to become CEO. People are respectful to each other throughout the organization. Leaving was a big mistake and I would love to return to work there one day.

Cons

Not very progressive, as most manufacturing companies are. If you work there too long, you may not be up to speed with the newer technologies other companies are using.

Advice to Management

Work harder to keep the excellent employees you have and try to come up to speed with new technologies. There are one or two senior managers who just don't know how to retain good employees.

    Pros

    A lot of training opportunities for mechanics

    Starting to move towards new and progressive technologies and business strategies

    Asks for and takes feedback well

    Cons

    Upper management is very "old school" and tends to do things the way they were done 20 years ago

    Many plants are in great need of updated equipment

    No interplant communication

    Advice to Management

    Arrange for multiple plants to get together and share ideas. Reduce the "Us vs. Them" mentallity when it comes to management and the union

    Pros

    Stable.. Once in you are stable
    OK pay.. Could be higher for experienced employees
    Some training.. Willing to train in new areas

    Cons

    benefits stink.. Health and dental are a horrible package
    Hours.. Consistency is not easy to come by in the company.
    Promote on accomplishments not on the good-old boy system.

    Advice to Management

    start to care a little more about the employees and the benefits provided. The minimum is not enough anymore.
