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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Great team. Good diversification. Offered training programs to help individuals excel

    Cons

    Felt like upper management and directors continued to strive while lower grade jobs were just there to do their work. Felt I was qualified for other positions and wasn't given the opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to groom and train someone with great potential. They may surprise you. Some of those people in higher positions don't deserve to be there.
