    Pros

    They have great benefits, decent pay, and job advancement. Fast paced work environment, not for the faint of heart. If you are a hard worker and don't mind the heat, it's not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    In the summer its hot, in the winter it can be down right cold. Fast paced work, sometimes to fast paced. Machinery needs to be replaced, constantly breaks down. Management is often times completely unfriendly. Crazy work schedule, six week rotating schedule. Company operates on a 7 day a week 24 hour schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more and get their opinion on whats going on and take it seriously, don't just brush it off. You have better quality and performance and less on the job injuries.

    I have been working at Dart Container as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Descent pay. Nice campus. Friendly people (mostly) to work with. Company is strong and still growing. Lot of opportunity to move around IT if that is where you want to be.

    Cons

    Business is silo'd - areas do not talk to one another to resolve business issues. Depends on IT resources to manage relationships. Very little value add. Some business areas have very negative view of IT and are very difficult to work with. Lot of bureaucracy and office politics to wade through. Leadership/Managers are more concerned with climbing the ladder than developing employees.

    Georgia plant- excellent work/life balance, good teamwork, better than average wages, but based on prior wage, healthcare benefits are much better than average,

    Corporate management hierarchy to tall. 401-k sounds really great until you realize the payout timings.

    Flatten reporting structure. Regional managers are a made up position
