    Pros

    Ball offers a very generous compensation and benefits package. The company provides ample development opportunities for those who are willing to put in the work. Ball is very generous in its charitable giving in the communities where it operates. The company has been around a long time and is built on a history of success. There is very low turnover at the company which speaks highly of the culture.

    Cons

    A large company where underperformers can get lost. It's low turnover can also be seen as a negative in that ideas and policies remain a bit stagnant over time.

    Advice to Management

    None, keep up the good work.

    Pros

    People are treated very well. Management genuinely care about the safety of the employees and try to promote fellowship and camaraderie. Movement between plants is encouraged.

    Cons

    Experience trumps education. Several plants are in relatively small and rural areas, where developing relationships is hard.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going. The company is doing very well!!!

    Pros

    Great Pay and great benefits. The guys that work are really great and we look out for each other.

    Cons

    Not very much time for yourself away from work. Long Hours, and hard work. Lots of overtime that is mandtory.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to forget about the employees. Its 120 degrees in the plant sometimes, and I feel like you forget about how hot it is to stay out there 12 hours a day.

    Pros

    Great pay hands down, no other place we'll pay you these wages for this kinda work. Benefits are on point, raises every year. 4 days on 4 days off work schedule. One month nights, one month days. You only work half a year

    Cons

    None so far, it's just like any other job.
