    I have been working at AptarGroup as an intern (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Genuine and kind co-workers. Great location to work. Many people start at low-tired positions at the company and work their way up to better and higher positions (upward mobility).

    Cons

    A traditional boys club - majority of supervisors, managers, and directors are males. There is a culture that persistently and fervently resists change in all forms.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women to management and directorial positions. Focus on implementing a culture accepting of and eager to change.

    Pros

    Supportive management team interested in coaching and development of interns. The office was a friendly and open environment for someone just entering the workforce.

    Cons

    This particular office location was limited in exposure to the broader organization and so networking was limited. It was difficult to get engaged to some extent because of the location.

    I worked at AptarGroup part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible with students. Management is patient when training their interns. Work is challenging, but provides excellent learning opportunities for entry level accountants.

    Cons

    Deadlines can be a bit stressful, especially on new projects.

    I have been working at AptarGroup full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job pays well compared to other companies in the plastic injection molding industry and if you show interest and are a good worker there is opportunity to advance in the company. There is very little turnover and most of the senior management has been with the company for over 20 years and most started in entry level positions.

    Cons

    If you are going to be working on the production floor the hours are long (12 hour shifts). Also, as a production floor employee, I feel that it is very difficult to get the mangers to take floor workers ideas for improvement seriously. The plant feels like it is segregated by office workers and production floor workers. Also the HR department is awful, the worst I have ever worked with, they are rude and rarely get things done correctly the first time.

    Advice to Management

    The management should take ideas for improvement from production floor workers more seriously, I mean we are the ones that spend 40+ hours a week on the floor, we have a lot of good ideas.

    I have been working at AptarGroup full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience working here with the people. A very clean and well organized facility far more better than an actual pharmaceutical/ drug manufacturing company. Coworkers and peers too are very friendly.

    Cons

    Salary/ pay is not at the par as compared to other pharmaceutical/medical device/packaging companies. Expect around the less than average rate. Insurance benefits are not the great either.

    Pros

    HQ is still very much a family feel. It's a F1000 company that hasn't forgotten that employees are key to its success.

    Cons

    In some departments, it's difficult to advance simply because people rarely leave Aptar. If you arrived at the right moment, you'll have a long and great career.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that there are opportunities for advancement. Talk to your managers not just your directors to find out their thoughts.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Able to work autonomously; no micro-managing. High level of responsibility and management allows you to take control. Management is available when needed. Pay was very good although every penny was earned. Good opportunities for traveling abroad although you're flying coach. Excellent opportunity to work with varied cultures.

    Cons

    Not a high level of trust between co-workers. Small office environment with a "fishbowl" feel. No women in executive positions. Cultural differences can cause tension, and drama-loving employees can exacerbate these differences.

    Advice to Management

    One of the biggest fallacies corporations fall prey to is promoting an employee based on how well he/she performs the current position and/or length of time employee has been with the company. It's remarkable how many excellent managers work within Aptar, and it's remarkable how many mediocre managers work within Aptar. Aim higher with your management team; ensure consistent excellence. You've got very talented people working for you; don't allow politics to determine who climbs highest.

    I worked at AptarGroup as an intern

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with many other interns from different departments. The work was interesting and I got along really well with my boss.

    Cons

    The workload was either very high or basically non existent. Also, as an intern, I did not get the opportunity to do any super substantive work.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any real advice for management. As an intern, I wasn't really exposed to the high level workings of the company. From what little I could tell, everything was fine.
