    Pros

    I feel that this fits me fine, and I have enjoyed this kind of work all my working life.

    Cons

    truble shooting was a challenge every day because I was all over the plant and hade to work fast to get machines up and running as quickly as posable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did learn a lot at graphic about electrical and I was called upon many times to work with machines to find and repair machines and find root causes .

    I worked at Graphic Packaging Holding

    Pros

    Great Employees to work with and along side.

    Cons

    CEO and friends could care less about the employees just how much can I put into my bank account. Will cut you and leave you to bleed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try asking what can be done and stop telling, believe it or not the employees know more about the business than you do.

    Pros

    Workers at plant level are family oriented and inventive by nature.

    Cons

    Senior management has stifled all ingenuity and worker motivation. Bonus program is a disincentive, meaning if you earn it, but the CEO decides you can't have it, why try?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as human resources capable if making a great product and company rather than as expendable replaceable nuisances.

    I worked at Graphic Packaging Holding full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good employee's friendly helpful

    Cons

    Management leads by fear of your job a point system for being late or calling in because of an emergency or sicknesses is a joke no insentive just do it or else kind of job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You would get more out of your employee's if you stop treating them like slaves and holding there job over there head to get better productively an incentive program would give them something to work for and not just do the minimum to stay imploded and your point system for being late or calling in due to an emergency or sicknesses is a joke you lose a lot of good employee's

    I have been working at Graphic Packaging Holding

    Pros

    Being unemployed used to seem like a worse option

    Cons

    Having worked at a few different companies in my 30 years I can say without hesitation that Graphic Packaging is uninterested in the employee's long term value to the company. They staff so thinly and tell you that your performance is lacking even when working 12-14 hour days. Pressure, pressure, pressure... get that last drop of blood from you. Then use your "lack of productivity" as an excuse to save your own pathetic hide with the upper management. Not that you aren't getting exactly the same treatment. What a ridiculous management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit work days for your plant level supervisors and managers to 10 hours and then see how much more you need to invest into personnel to have a happy stable workforce.

    I have been working at Graphic Packaging Holding full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People who work in the plants making the product.

    Cons

    Hostile and aggressive leadership who target those they determine to not fit in, i.e. long term employees, Mexican-Americans, and women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit the lip service toward improving the culture.

    I have been working at Graphic Packaging Holding full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I sit on my computer and write this review while at work. Enough said, I love my job....I basically hold an office as a Dept Manager and besides going to a few meetings daily. I go over some odds and ends and that's about it. Occasionally I have to come out of the air conditioning, but very minimal. This company is very over managed and most don't know what your job is or whether your suppose to be doing something or not. Just saying like it is. I have been with the company for over 10 years now, current position for about 2 years and at the rate I'm going plan on retiring very soon. They pay well for basically doing a nothing job.

    Cons

    Occasionally going to all these meetings that basically mean nothing. Its a great job if you don't mind being bored. I talk on the phone, play on the computer, and again, occasionally have to work. Best job ever....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know I am cutting my throat when I say this....but we are over managed. If I have time to do nothing, so do so many others. Half the time I don't even know who is who and what is what.
