I worked at Sonoco ThermoSafe as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Coworkers are generally very helpful. It is a great place to learn how to be proactive. The collaborative culture really encourages taking initiative. The more you apply yourself the more you will get out of the experience.

Cons

It can become repetitive. There are still much room for improvement in terms of how things are done. There isn't very much encouragement to learn more than what is necessary to do the basics of one's job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The co-op and internship program should include experience in a broader range of positions. This will help interns to understand the bigger picture better. Weekly feedback to the intern is crucial to helping him/her grow.

    I worked at Sonoco ThermoSafe full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the employees at Thermosafe. In working across the organization you see the dedication and ownership of most employees. Projects are always interesting and allows you to work with others in the organization.

    Cons

    Senior management seemed to struggle with priorities and making decisions based upon those priorities then sticking with the decision. Priorities would change and only those in the room knew of the changes and no one emailed others of the decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate priorities to the entire team.
    Be honest with personnel

    I have been working at Sonoco ThermoSafe full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed visibility of top tier management and how they appreciated the bottom line workers. They showed concern for safety and overall satisfaction. They were interested in hearing about ways to improve business and over time became more interested in developing teams to implement some changes.

    Cons

    When interviewed I was told they were looking for someone to grow within the company, but whenever people within my department consider moving into a role the "emotional aspect" of having to find someone to fill the vacant spot was made known before saying congratulations. They tell you you're doing a great job, but don't allow you the opportunity to move into another role to advance your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to evaluate their immediate supervisors or managers. Upward communication during the performance review is very one sided. Management needs to know how they can improve as well as the employees. When it comes to the employee review, if the employee hasn't been with the company for a year their review should wait until they've had a full year to be assessed. Invest in your employees so the option is to work from home. Not only for the account managers, but for all the employees. You want quality candidates and for people to stay with the company as loyal employees, but don't offer ways that not only benefits you but them.
