    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

    Its a pay check and has decent benefits. But they will never hire another full time employee only season help and temp workers.

    Cons

    Constant policy changes designed to write up and fire as many hourly employees as possible.
    Constant harassment from management.
    Now matter what you do or how good you do it it is never enough.
    Unequal treatment between employees.
    They hire people to run departments that have no clue about the production process for the department.

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing policies every week. When your employees tell there is a problem listen. Employee morale is important and right now it cant get much lower. Learn to cooperate with the bargaining unit. They are not your enemy but are there to help.
