    Pros

    Team oriented, leadership is strategically aligned on objectives, focused on process improvements, room for personal/professional growth, career opportunities, sustainable product and industry, down to earth managers/leadership

    Due to size (60+ locations, 11 countries) communication and alignment can be a slight issue.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Time goes by quickly.steady work easy to find your routine and complete tasks assigned to you.

    Cons

    forced progression..they can move you anywhere anytime..make you go to 12 hour shifts.move you to another dept.an a days notice..the favorites get treated great.while regular average workers get the crap end of the work.they can move you up to opetator anytime they see fit.even though you do not desire a job change.arrogant life long employees treat new people like garbage .yelling even screaming at them expecting them to know what they know.

    Advice to Management

    be honest..dont lull trainees into thinking they will have time to grow into the job.dont just throw employees into full workload alone when they are clearly not ready..also rules should be consistent for everyone.

    I have been working at Bemis (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company and great leadership. Very much a team atmosphere and the benefit are great. I would recommend Bemis to anyone. This is a great company to work for with great leaders.

    Cons

    I can not think of any real negatives. Just the location. The Fox Valley is a great place to raise a family and most of the locations for Bemis are in the Fox Valley. There is nothing bad to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    I think everything it going well. The employees are engaged and the management team is onboard with what needs to happen to make the company great. There is nothing to complain about. From the hourly employees up to senior leadership.

    Pros

    Great company that does a good job balancing long-term business health with short term demands. Leadership is placing a focus on improving performance, from both a total-company financial perspective and an individual-employee perspective. Accountability is weaving its way throughout the organization, which is a great thing for hard-working, results-oriented employees. Lots of career advancement opportunities, and the company rewards employees who deliver/perform.

    Cons

    It takes time to weave the change through the entire organization. Good start, a way to go yet. Probably true at any company undergoing change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have high expectations for our organization.

    Pros

    Great company that continues to invest and grow. Rock solid history of performance. High performance culture really starting to take shape.

    Cons

    Legacy systems tend to make some back office functions more diffucult then they need to be. Sometimes the conversative nature of the company delays hiring when there are needs for additional positions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path you are on. High performance culture and investing for the future. Developing the best Human capital and the reinvesting in the best equipment will set the path for profitable growth in the future.
