    I have been working at Menasha Packaging full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is growing tremendously and aims to be very innovative in their approach to packaging and displays. There are lots of opportunities for professional development with the tools they give you, and it is encouraged to return to school to further your education (and there's education reimbursement)!

    The culture with the teams I have worked with is all very positive and the family values the company prides itself on run deep. Also, there are many minor benefits that make the day-to-day fun including wellness challenges, great coffee machines, chair massages, etc.

    Cons

    Overall, I haven't run into too many cons with the company. However, one thing that is good but sometimes bad is the amount of longevity some of the employees have. It's great because it shows that Menasha is a great place to build a long-term career, but sometimes you run into employees that don't want to change because "they have done it this way for 20 years". I think this mindset is changing though as Menasha continues to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! Although, it would be nice to see more women in management roles.

    Pros

    Room for advancement. Not too much to say as its like a slave factory. They sit employees in lunchroom and a line leader comes in and picks who he/she wants to work. The whole shift you're moving fast, for only minimum wage! I'm looking for new job immediately! They wont mind as Menasha has high turnover rate...

    Cons

    Hot in summer. Cold in winter! Fast Paced, bending, but low minimum wage pay. No public transportation to facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more and organize!

    Pros

    Growing profitable company. Not always good to their people, mostly fault of middle managers.

    Cons

    Current clique environment detrimental to better success. Must be political to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on customers service than angling for annual bonus.

    Pros

    - Great life/work balance, I was always able to adjust my hours if needed
    - Family atmosphere
    - Decent pay for area

    Cons

    - Lack of organization at the upper level
    - Quick growth and acquisition = lots of changes all the time
    - Many managers are "grandfathered" in, and don't meet the requirements of their positions once promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more employee-centric intranet and get people on the same page
