I worked at Sonoco Products

Pros

Senior Leadership excellent. Great community. Company has fantastic potential and will continue to be successful.

Cons

Understaffed. Does not welcome "outsiders" into their "culture." It is great if born and raised in Hartsville or if parents/family members have worked for the company. Also, HR department, benefits, etc. VERY antiquated. Senior management strong, but lots of turf fighting among middle managers - which leads to bad decision making.

    Pros

    Stable company with good training and retention. Strong policies for advancement. Managers are good at working with people and are helpful.

    Cons

    Economic downturn has hit it pretty hard. Culture is somewhat stagnated in the past. Since it is such a large company, it's very slow to react.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep instituting change and things will turn around soon
