    I worked at Caraustar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are descent and the pay is good. You will find an extended family below management.

    However, cost of living raises are few. Zero... during my time there. There is a bonus plan. But, you will have to jump through all the hoops and complete all of the paperwork required monthly to get it.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, bully tactics to intemmidate, and negate an employee's value to the company. Fear tactics will be the demise of this company if they do not change management style.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging... You can't keep strong personalities with leadership skills if you do not allow them to do their job.
