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

    Pros

    Stable paycheck. Besides that there really isn't too much. Mismanaged. Very anti union. In fact we were the last one in the company.

    Cons

    They used up their 10 years tax free and now they're closing up shop and moving. They've also hired people knowing they were bound to close. Preach safety but desire production.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers and pay was great

    Cons

    Female workers can move along a lot faster than men and get promotions faster. Be a female, go out for drinks with your boss after hours, and you will get promoted in no time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all sex the same.
