    I have been working at Graphic Packaging International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Above average pay. Decent benefits. Most employees are good people.

    Cons

    Long hours. Never knowing when your shift will change and never given a reason. Management has been changed multiple times over the years. Employees are forced to work sometimes 30 days straight with no days off. Equipment is not maintained, but employees are told to operate them at higher speeds, and then once all else fails, management is beaten into submission and forced out for not hitting goals.

    Advice to Management

    Repair the equipment. Hold worthless employees accountable and stop letting them run the nut house. Take care of the dedicated employees. Remove the union.

    Good people work at this company, and I have seen several move up in the ranks. In general, it is a positive, friendly and productive work environment. Free coffee is a plus, too.

    Cons

    The on-boarding and training process could improve.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to empower Customer Service team to act as business managers and come up with creative solutions.

    I worked at Graphic Packaging International full-time

    Pros

    Money, money, money, money, money, money They pay for work shoes once each year For the most part, supervisors are good people

    Cons

    Everything but the 3 Pros mentioned. Sexual harassment is tolerated and excused by HR, no punishment is given, regardless if it is the first offense or if someone is a repeat offender. Upper management picks and chooses different discipline, depending on the person/people involved, even if the same rule is broken by each employee. Management and HR in the Pacific, MO plant seems to think they are better than... everyone else and treat the employees as such. If, for any reason, you choose to get a job in this place, watch your back, ALWAYS. Numbers are more important than customers satisfaction and employee safety and wellbeing. They are only concerned with customer satisfaction and quality if customers are upset and threatening to take their work away. Employees are treated extremely poorly, it is obvious that employees are not cared about, unless you happen to be "in the back pocket" of certain other employees. Culture is bad!!! Not sure they understand the meaning of a good work culture.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to corporate....pay close attention to to the things going on in your Pacific, Missouri plant...it deserves your attention and your time, start asking questions. Maybe clean house and start all over again in upper management and Human Resources. Hire people with compassion and people skills, the opposite of what you have now! There is much to be desired in many areas in this particular plant. If it were... possible to give a negative rating for work/life balance, career opportunities, senior management, and culture and values, I certainly would have done so.
