    Pros

    Has good work balance, reasonable benefit. Top management has regular meeting with the employee and good committee on safety work environment.

    Business units are sold off or close down during the crisis. Consolidation and sustainability issue should has been analyses better to prevent it. Company has quite a bit of debt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the good work. Overall good management. Could create more identity for all sites instead of only a few site in Europe and Latin America.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Rexam full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rexam are highly professional in can making with some world class engineering and focus on LEAN Six Sigma which makes them extremely productive and gives the opportunity to develop leading edge experience in these fields.
    The workforce in beverage can plants are well paid with above market fringe benefits resulting in low turnover, but with an ageing demographic

    Cons

    The corporate PLC Headquarters in Millbank London is a different story. It has been a revolving door over the last six years with initiatives such as 'Rexam Way' and the buildup of the Plastics Sector stopping suddenly, going into reverse and disbanding. So if you're joining as part of a new initiative then beware that you are not just flavour of the month- check for long term commitment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There aren't many British manufacturers left - we understand the challenging environment. CEO and CFO seemed to have a problem trusting their senior team and this filtered through the leadership

    Pros

    There are nice people in all areas of the organization and interesting products being produced. A global organization that offers the chance to interact in different languages and with various cultures.

    Cons

    Career opportunities can be limited if you are not interested in moving to other areas/ locations, as the there are not too many positions in a given area due to automation and slim staffing. Constructive criticism on your performance is never direct and requires you to read into the feedback you receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Timely communication on work performance and clear direction, as to how the individual can provide additional value to the organization, would assist in employee retention.
