    Excellent pay with great perks and bonuses.

    Find great leaders and promote positive, honest leadership, not bullying and force. Treat employees with respect and gI've them responsibility. An easy way to lose grwat employees is to treat them like kids with no responsibility!

    Pros

    Good employees to work with.

    Management is determined to make you as unhappy as possible. It seems to be their main goal. It was at one time(before new management came in) a great place to work.

    Get over yourselves. Lose the ego. Practice kindness.

    I worked at Green Bay Packaging full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits. 401K matching. Proximity to Mrs. Baird's outlet. Free parking. Acceptable atmosphere as long as you are a man and have a degree.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. Upper management full of narcissistic good 'ol boys who spend the majority of their time making fun of current and past employees and talking about how awesome college was. Not female friendly in the slightest. No female management. Not family friendly. HR is not trustworthy. No real employee appreciation. Dreaded coming into work every day. Old computer systems. No room for growth. Did not listen to employee concerns or ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and consideration. They are your most valuable asset.
