    I worked at Ball Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is higher than average, some of the people are decent, you only work 4 on 4 off, benefits are alright, job is stable as long as you play by the rules and the plant doesn't randomly get shut down or lose it's contract

    Cons

    Management is terrible and won't listen to you even when you're completely upfront with them about your situation, upper management does not care about their employees, the plant gets extremely hot in the summer, co-workers start unnecessary drama, mandatory meetings on your days off, attendance points system (even if you're 2 minutes late because of traffic you get slapped for it), rotating days to nights shifts with sometimes very little time to change your sleep pattern, mandatory overtime that is not evenly distributed amongst the crew, the slightest mistakes get you in trouble, and I was subjected to multiple conferences in an office where I was talked down to and made to feel like I needed to quit my job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop requiring your employees to attend meetings on their days off that you could incorporate into their work schedule. Ease up on your attendance policy, 4 points for a missed meeting on someones day off is ridiculous. When an employee is completely open and honest with you about their situation, maybe you should appreciate that and take that into consideration instead of dismissing it. Talking down to employees, especially females, is eventually going to get someone, or possibly the company, in legal trouble. Stop blaming employees for things that are out of their control. And lastly, take care of your employees who don't get to sit in an air conditioned office all day.

    Pros

    Good pay. Not much else. Work, Work and more work , job security for the lazy, and pretty people. No.

    Cons

    Politics, lip service, money is the bottom line. Management likes to promote the slackers! Insurance is terrible! HR sucks to many favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue! Stop the lip service and take care of the problem employees, they are killing the morale!
