I have been working at Berry Plastics Group part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They care a lot about their employees. They put safety first, and make sure you are never in harms way. If you're willing to put in the effort, there are advancement opportunities within the company.

Cons

Very strict on being efficient. Often found myself struggling to find something to do whenever my machine would go down. People get sent home nightly. People are drafted on the weekends. I've worked 56 hour weeks.

Advice to Management

Balance the work schedule so that not so many people are sent home.

    I worked at Berry Plastics Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I waited over a year to review, but honestly still can't say anything positive about Berry other than they RIF'ed about 20 of us and we're all happier with our new employers. All of us. So thanks to Berry for that

    Cons

    Management in Evansville doesn't understand the business of their acquisitions and looks solely at how to generate cash at the expense of customers, people and reputation. They don't want anyone who will question their way of doing things, even if the company reputation suffers. Capital improvements are for others, they want to spend money on new acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. Only a matter of time before Amcor and Graham earn your customers away.
