    I worked at Ball Metal Food Container Corp full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fair pay, fair benefits, steady work, good people to work with

    Cons

    I worked at one of the casting and extrusion plants that was absorbed by Ball (formerly Neuman Aluminum). The work environment is hot, dirty (just the nature of the business) sometimes dangerous and stressful, as management was always after those production numbers. If they were not met for the shift, you better have a good reason why they weren't. I heard that some practices improved after Ball took over, as I still stay in touch with some of the current employees. I can't not recommend them, because it's a job. If you are a lazy person, this is not for you, and you will not be there very long.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the production employees have to say. Yes there are often the regular complainers and whiners, but most have valid opinions and suggestions.

    I have been working at Ball Metal Food Container Corp (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent Benefits, with decent pay.

    Cons

    Diversity is a lie because there is no equality. No production leadership, no training and no higher paying jobs for women. They want the few women in can plant production to keep their mouths shut.

    Advice to Management

    Allow women to be both General Supervisors and Production Supervisors. Give them equal training and equal opportunities as you do the men.

    Cons

    Nepotism, Management is dictating and does what they want, when they want.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring only family and friends and give others the opportunity to get in. Listen to employees rather than making compulsive decisions based on how you feel that day.
