    I worked at AptarGroup full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of good hard working employees. Health insurance was cheap(coverage sucked). Supposedly a pension that I'm sure will get drained once the crazy high number of 25 year plus employees retire.

    Cons

    Very low pay for level of responsibility and skill level. Frequently promotes interns and others with little to no experience to lead/management positions. Frequently plays games when confronted with the low pay question by employees, pretending there is no issue or they pay an acceptable level of salary. Will make claims they look at salary reports but then leave out they only take into account data from where they are located and to the west which is all rural and ignore all the higher paying towns just east of their location. Or they may claim they are trying to be fair to the low paid employees in other locations/regions such as Europe and that is why. But then no one in the US receives the many weeks worth of vacation days that the Europeans do. Also does an abnormally high number of organisation restructures/changes and keeps employees in the dark about any details so they don't know what their job will become or even if they will still have one. I.T. leadership has traditionally been a joke, led by a bunch of clowns that clearly have no clue what they want or are even doing. Employees have been promoted out of Europe, show preference to others in Europe and treat American employees like a lower class. I.T. leadership pushes through giant projects without knowing what the implications will be. Once the project is over and business efficiency is completely ruined the marathon finger pointing game can begin.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they're worth and stop playing games with what the market value of their job should be. If you can't do this then move all of your operations and headquarters somewhere that has a much lower cost of living than the Chicago land area. Fire the top management of I.T. and replace with someone competent post haste.

    Pros

    Nothing Positive about this place. Management is only concerned with the "inner clique"

    Cons

    Terrible company since converting to the Matrix Organization model

    Horrendous Manager was appointed to a leadership role that he was not qualified for. All about favoritism. If you are not in the "Clique" you are in for a rough ride. I also agree with the previous post from another employee.

    "The moral compass of the company needs to be questioned. Recent promotions are to the same people that are the 'party people', going out drinking every week with the boss. Senior leaders need to set a better example for the rest of the organization. What was once a good company has deteriorated so much with the current management team"

    Advice to Management

    You need to shake this place up and get rid of the current and terrible Management team

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

    Pros

    The company used to be nice to work for, and the staff used to be very helpful. Human Resources used to help when there were any issues.

    Cons

    The company has reduced the benefits drastically over the last few years, and no longer cares about the people who make their products on the factory floor.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to listen to the needs of all of the employees, not just catering to the employees that work in the offices.

    Pros

    the people who work in Stratford are a good team and dedicated to the success of the business. Some really talented individuals.

    Cons

    The moral compass of the company needs to be questioned. Recent promotions are to the same people that are the 'party people', going out drinking every week with the boss. Senior leaders need to set a better example for the rest of the organization. What was once a good company has deteriorated so much with the current management team.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new leadership team in NA
