I have been working at Sealed Air Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits for employees with many long term staff members loyal to the company.
Little to no travel restrictions and was able to see many different countries whilst I worked on their SAP implementation.
Surpeb team to work with and many friends garnered

Cons

Salary was below market which was ultimately why I left after 3 years
No company, even with 200 manufacturing sites globally, needs to take 13 years to deploy SAP

Advice to Management

Make a plan and stick with it, don't keep revisiting and reworking, make your original plan work

    I worked at Sealed Air Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leader in the industry, impressive history. Good facilities and supportive co workers. Good market presence. Management that tries to expand the business, but Diversey acquistion was done poorly.

    Cons

    Lacking training. Software like Business Warehouse (BW) rushed out into field. Bosses that postpone meetings and are disorganized. Promotions of the wrong individuals. Last minute changes and rush jobs. Called to do new reports and not given the chance to work on annual goals. Month end financial close changed from a four business day process to a two day process and told that we will be given the chance to work on projects during the month. Guess what? Management changes and the prior agreement is forgotten.
    Rush to complete reports and given only vlookup to complete task, not enough time do business analysis work and only end being a spreadsheet hack.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees in outside plants a chance to defend themselves against bad reviews that are not properly documented and done after business hours like a Friday night at 7:30 pm. Human resources (People and Performance) must be more proactive with employees.

    Never allow bad reviews to occur without giving an employee a chance to explain themselve and have a better understanding of the review process.

    Dump Success Factors becasue it has never been a factor in anyone's success.

    Pros

    Rank and File employees are for the most part hard working, dedicated and willing to go the "extra mile" to achieve success if an objective is worthwhile.

    Cons

    Recent Management/Ownership abandoned the company (with lucrative severance packages) as part of a sale to Sealed Air. The remaining company is plagued by a leadership void and the workforce is rapidly becoming disengaged/discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Need to set a positive and clear new direction for the company complete with an effective org structure as soon as possible.
