I have been working at Solo Cup full-time

Pros

Hardworking, friendly hourly workers. Some talented management. DART has taken over and will certainly shake things up which will no doubt force some old thinking out the door.

Cons

Talented management is stifled by peer managers and are not willing to stick their neck out for something they believe in. The bar is set very low and is often not reached. management does not empower their supervisors or hourlys to contribute to improvement. It all starts at the top and the top doesnt expect very much

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expect more out of yourself and your subordinates. Roll with the punches because without change you are already being out produced by Asia and other producers int he US.

    I have been working at Solo Cup

    Pros

    good people work there, that is the best reason. I have made many friends there. short commute. The benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management. nobody ever tells you when you do a good job but when you make a mistake, everybody is there getting mad at you. work environment sucks. no morale. too much favortism. Its just not a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone fairly and have some common decency. You gotta give respect to get it. If I do something wrong, come tell me, dont send someone else to tell me.
