Pros

Great management, employees are empowered, very open atmosphere, fantastic people, very competitive pay. Employees stay a long time here because it is such a great company.

Cons

Only one - Location. The actual place is great, small town with Florence close by so everything you could need is here. Geography is nice because you have several places two hours from here BUT the location is not big enough or popular enough to draw good teachers and schools. The elementary schools are AWESOME in many places here, but after that you are struggling to find good schools, even private.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep looking out to see what is next, stay ahead of the tough times by diversifying, and benchmarking other firms to identify best practices.

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