    I worked at Silgan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people that work at Silgan are GREAT! Very knowledgeable and helpful! Some of the best I have worked with!

    Cons

    Constant shift in company direction and a lack of focus. Upper management changed three times in 5 years. Health benefits were quite costly and the coverage was not the best. The company did not realize the value of simple things that would make employees more content with their positions.

    Advice to Management

    A strategy needs to be commited to for an extended period. It is difficult to see the results if it is not given a chance.
