    Pros

    Overall the company has a strong people focus. They try to do well by their people

    Cons

    Sonoco is a family started, mostly small plant company. Corporate support does not have a good feel for large site operational needs.

    Pros

    Job security - financially sound company with long and solid history

    Cons

    Senior Leadership is not in tune with the businesses it now owns. Short term decision making - business managed very short term. Far too much emphasis on centralization. Policies for policies sake, with no common sense or discussion to back them up. HR too powerful and misguided

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the HR group, focus them on supporting the businesses not dictating to them.
    Take a longer term view.
    Recognize A players before they leave and manage C players out of the business

    Disapproves of CEO
