    I worked at Graham Packaging full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and managers at my facility. Pretty good pay.

    Cons

    Incredibly difficult to remove points once accrued, unless you work a lot of overtime. No corrective actions given to slackers once they earned seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Industry t that each and every person take care of their required responsibilities.

    I have been working at Graham Packaging full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay rate and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Management is favoritism to employees and they don't go by the hand book, when placing employee by seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to step up game, because you will never have good employees with the management you have today, Treat people the way you want to be treated, Don't just throw managers in position that don't have management experience.

    I worked at Graham Packaging full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Graham has good benefits, and competitive pay

    Cons

    No work/home life balance. You are just a number and continuous improvement is only on a piece of paper. The company doesn't live its core values. If you want to punch a clock and work like a slave this is your company. The current management has set the company back several years.

    Advice to Management

    Take some basic communication and team building classes. You forgot what it takes to have a great organization. Get a 360 degree reviews from your plants and see how people really feel about your leadership style. I'm sure you will find out quickly that your plants do not trust or respect you.

    Focus on your personnel and promotion from within, provide opportunities for internal candidates to rise in the organization but do not stagnate your people.
