    I worked at Bemis as an intern

    Pros

    I was an intern for just a summer, but was able to learn a lot about the company in that short amount of time. My team was small, but we all got along really well, and they were always willing to help if I had any questions.

    Cons

    There were no major downsides to working here.

    Has a strong base...great leaders, great assets, great people who truly care and are working hard to move the company in the right direction.

    Performance hasn't been as-desired this year, but the flip side is that a lot of action is being take to improve that.

    Keep up the good internal communication of the path forward -- we are rallying and know what we need to do to get there.

    I worked at Bemis as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The engineers and scientists at Bemis are extremely knowledgeable and skilled, as well as very ready to help interns learn. Managers focus on personal development well, and helped me grow as a professional as well as an engineer. The co-op program also exposes you to leaders in the company, so you get to hear a lot of interesting perspectives about how the company functions, and on how to be successful as a professional.

    Engineers engage in a lot of different projects, and have the opportunity to switch positions frequently. You can learn quite a bit over a few years, here.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains that have begun affecting the efficiency of how R&D works with manufacturing facilities, for scale-up trials and the like. There are many hoops to jump through, and communication can be spotty.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on pushing communication between manufacturing facilities and R&D. A great deal of time is wasted on engineers waiting on projects to go through manufacturing facilities. That makes quarterly growth difficult.

    I worked at Bemis as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with intern hours, worked with a lot of great people, loved my managers and peers

    Cons

    When first hired, I could have used a little more training and was definitely just thrown into things

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training upon hire and give more explanations of work

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I worked at Bemis as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to Co-op with Bemis in their Shelbyville, KY facility. It was a friendly, productive work environment with a lot of great people. I enjoyed my time spent their as an engineering co-op.

    Cons

    The downside to working in almost any manufacturing environment is working indoors for an extended period of time. The only time spent outside was during lunch on the patio.

    Advice to Management

    Management was excellent at Bemis. They were helpful whenever any questions arose and were willing to teach me about different aspects of the company (i.e finance, shipping, logistics).
