    Pros

    Great plant leadership; cared about people, cared about safety, offered gain-share. Great co-workers.

    Corporate offices didn't share enough of the wealth. Too much corporate leadership - too many white men.

    Pros

    Stable company, excellent benefits including free medical to employees and pension + 401k match, extremely knowledgeable coworkers

    Cons

    Change can occur slowly. Sometimes there are missed opportunities if we take too long to act.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on developing our people and promoting from within. Improve communications between corporate and the plants so everyone is working together.

    Pros

    Easy job and decent schedule

    Cons

    Never any overtime and warehouse is closed ever year for 3 to 5 months

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees working during the overhaul season. Maybe train them to assist mechanics and operators. Otherwise you will lose good employees every year and have to keep retraining new ones.

    I worked at Crown Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Crown Cork & Seal makes a quality product and is very concerned about safety and using quality materials to make high quality product and continues to renovate there factory to improve productivity.

    Cons

    The wages are lower than other factory jobs in the area. Training is lacking in many areas of the factory. Required to work most holidays! The last year I worked there I worked all but one of the eight annual holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more open minded to suggestions from employees and vendors. Management also needs to stay on top of complaints of employee on employee abuse.

    Good pay and benefits. Fair share of really good employees. Seemingly solid sales and marketing plan. Emphasis on employee safety and well-being.
