    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.

    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.

    I worked at Bemis full-time

    Pros

    - Great people. It's refreshing to work somewhere where people enjoy coming to work.
    - Free sodas/coffee/snacks, often free lunch. I probably got free lunch 1-2 a week.
    - Able to move laterally to new departments, job shadow, and learn new skills within the company.
    - Flextime, based on your supervisor.
    - Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    - Weird division of departments make projects grind to a halt due to bureaucracy. This is made worse as some plants used different methods of organization.
    - Sharing R&D time with production planning. On one hand: great, you know your project will run well on real equipment. On the other, your ability to run a project is completely tied to who you know, who you can bribe with food, and the whims of the production manager. Get a pilot plant.

    Advice to Management

    Get your plant managers, engineering segment leaders, and business segment leaders together in a room and plan concurrently. Have your segment leaders explain what their needs and timetables are, and have the managers lay out what their capabilities are.

    Get more pilot planning capabilities.

    Pros

    People are great, lots of opportunity for an engineer to be hands on and make a difference. Good pay, good production metric-based incentives.

    Cons

    Management isn't well connected to what is going on in the factory. Corporate management doesn't seem to know what is going on.
