Pros

Even thought the company is large, team work and collaboration are the norm. people genuinely care about each other and the company takes good care of its own.

Cons

I hadn't worked for a company the size of Sonoco before. Sometimes the bureaucratic methods are hard to work through.

    Pros

    Good opportunity early in your career - gives you the opportunity to build your resume which you will need when you finally realize there is a better world outside.

    Cons

    Culture is bizarre at times - senior management says the right things- then behave exactly the opposite of what they say. God help you if you are a manager of an operation and someone gets hurt - it's as if you held the employees hand and told him to injure himself... The witch hunts are frustrating and I've seen several very good managers fired over the years for purely political reasons - people who were excellent at their jobs, but HR people didn't like them because they voiced their opinions too openly.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you phage good people working hard in your operations at all levels - and have more respect for them and what they contribute. If you want to know about a particular plant, spend more than 5 hours a year there -
