I worked at Graphic Packaging International full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They offer a decent salary

Cons

Terrible benefits, poor leadership, too many people in management following their own personal agenda's and not looking out for the company, HR completely confused, the company as a whole is borderline unethical on some of their actions,. Reading reviews back to 2010, doesn't look like they are doing anything to improve and keeping the status quo of this is not a good place to work unless you want to be taken advantage of and under appreciated. The vision they present of who they are, is nothing like what they are really like. Fake all the way

Advice to Management

Hire manager's that work for the better of the company not for just bettering themselves, and the biggest one, walk the talk, you are miles and miles behind

    I worked at Graphic Packaging International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay and benefits mainly because of the union

    Cons

    management and HR. they hate the union and create a culture of them v.s us. constant threats of discipline in safety meetings and upper management won't take employees ideas nor will the empower them. firings happen all the time to new but also long term employees for small mistakes or for schedule changes done after the time that is directed it to be, the employees have gone home and don't know. if you get hurt well nice knowing you. union is so weak and union reps are so afraid of speaking out and advocating for members means they sit there in meetings and say nothing. grevience's do get filed but members are not called to be there to advocate for themselves. you work in a constant state of fear. major turn over in all aspects of company including lower management. maintanece department is not allowed to keep parts. people thrown into positions they do not want, against contract and then get fired for it

    Advice to Management

    have some common sense. invest in the equipment and your employees. cost you a lot to can people with several years employment only to hire entry level to replace them. treat your employees like an asset instead of like kleenex to be thrown away. you will come way out ahead
