    I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Clean facility
    Well ventilated
    You can work hard or hardly, no one will know the difference or hold you accountable.

    Cons

    Poor leadership
    Poor Communication
    Poor execution
    No opportunity for advancement
    2-2-3 12hr shifts. With more than enough forced overtime to cover what you don't make in a raise.
    Tiered hourly rate based on "skill" that grandfathered the employees from the previous company top rate and has yet to yield a single raise for anyone else.
    One more time Poor Communication.

    Advice to Management

    To Corporate Management. Cut your losses and start with a fresh team. Stop hiring "friends and family" hire qualified applicants. Remove holding a job title for a year. There are quite a few lower job class employees with the skills and experience to fill openings

    Pros

    The atmosphere is pretty great, the benefits are also a great reason to stay around. Sometimes they throw events.

    Management is constantly fighting over who is right rather than working together to offer solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Get more young blood in your environment. Remove your super professional outlook and modernize yourself before you fall behind morale wise.

    Pros

    If you like being lied to or spending a lot of time brown nosing you will find a spot. If you have a back bone you will not. And they got one star only because I had to show something there. Believe me, they are all zeroes.

    Cons

    Dishonesty, mismanagement, people really thinking they are something when they are nothing more than peons, very bad health plan for a company so large, probably the most uninformed group of bad management that is ruining a plant. They have no clue about the machinery they just spent millions on for sheets. Pure dingbats.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way. You're dead weight. And very dishonest.
