    I have been working at Berry Plastics Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The coworkers on the floor are a great group to work with. Their is not much good to say about this facility.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care for the employees. The pay is below avg for this area. HR doesn't keep anything confidential at this plant. No permanent plant manager stays at this facility. Management is big on the buddy buddy system. Overall the worst place to work.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the Monroe plant to run smoother you need the old management out and reorganize this facility. Your supervisor makes threats on Facebook but HR does nothing about it but promotes the employee. The facility needs a complete reorganization from office personnel to the supervisors on the floor.

    Pros

    Very good work atmosphere. Dynamic environment, good amount of responsibility even as intern. Everybody is easily approachable. They also have online learning university.

    Cons

    The training program is intense only for summer interns and not for Fall. So, I felt, the training could have been more interactive. In general, may be expanding the cafeteria can be helpful for employees.

    Pros

    Berry Plastics is a good company to work for. The employees are good people and the salary is good. It is a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    The constantly changing schedule from eight to twelve hours back and forth. The inconsistency of the work load, and the uncertainty of our main customer.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more fairly, base shifts and decisions about employees on their talents, work ethics, and performance rather than personal relationships.
