    I worked at Amcor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, pay and bonus program, safety is very important.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, no value put on people development, bottom line is profits at any expense. Company has core values but they are just words on paper, leadership talks about them but does not walk-the-talk. Very punitive environment, currently going through restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Value your labor force, hire leaders that can actually lead people and gain success through their staff's experience and talent. Current leadership only cares about getting their own bonus. Respectfully utilizing the many, many talented people who do the actual work of creating and producing the products might provide a better result in your financials.

    I have been working at Amcor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, some overtime, decent benefits, trying to reward employees

    Cons

    Green or rookie managers in key positions, it's all about the senior managers, employees are a "resource", human resources tries, but, like the mangers, doesn't have a clue, everything is "reactive", experienced employees are never included in major projects, until it's too late, they have the degrees, so, they know it all!!! Bonus program is a carrot dangled infront of a donkey.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the employees like they mean something and you'll be suprised what happens
