    Pros

    Talented & dedicated workforce at Philadelphia, PA facility.

    Because headquarters located in mid-West, our facility which represented over 45% of total sales for division, did not receive the support warranted from corporate leadership.

    Employees are resources which should not be considered "throwaways"

    I worked at Bemis full-time

    Pros

    Pay was in the upper area for the field. Benefits were OK. If you buy into the culture, it can be a good thing or bad for your health.

    Cons

    Management only had their own backs and buddy program. Lower managers simply said yes. If you had other ideas management was always right and you were pushed out. Very much lack of trust. If you wanted to advance or move around you needed to be on everyone's good side. Long hours and expectation of always be available.

    Advice to Management

    Turn over management, Use your votes and turn over the head table.

    Pros

    Top rate operator is around $27 an hour. 12 hour shifts. Benefits are good vision, 401k, healthcare, and dental. Also match 401k at 8% dollar for dollar.

    Cons

    Night shift takes a long time to become day shift. The older workers are lazy and the younger crowd has to pull there weight for them.
