    Former Employee - I Worked In the Office At the Batavia Location

    I worked at Portola Packaging full-time

    Pros

    Clean plant and nice office setting. Managers and supervisors are pretty solid for the most part. The manufacturing site is in a good setting in Batavia with restaurants fairly close and a park about a mile down the street.

    Cons

    Some leadership changes on the GM side. Upper management also completely turned over when I was there. They lost some good leaders. At that time, is was managed by a private equity company. It has since been sold to a company in the plastics closures industry. That is probably good for the employees as the owners likely understand the business and product better than the last owners.
