    I have been working at Huhtamaki Americas full-time

    Pros

    Huhtamaki genuinely cares about its employees. USA headquarters work environment is top notch. My coworkers are competent, professional, friendly, and helpful. Pay is in line with market demand. Top leadership is on top of it. Everyone knows what they are doing. People are friendly, loving, kind, engaging, and cooperative for the most part. Benefit package is good.

    Cons

    I work in technology and we are behind on technology but we are rapidly catching up since we have good new management in the IT Services department. Pay could be higher but is not by any means low.

    Communication and cooperation between business side and operations could always improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Embrace technology as a primary tool to reach and exceed goals.

    I worked at Huhtamaki Americas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work was easy. Manager was easy to get along with. Good vacation and holiday schedule. Still some tenured employees that are experienced.

    Cons

    No teamwork. Everyone out for their own benefit. Hostile work environment. Good old boys club. Morale low. HR does not listen to emplyee issues. Unrealistic production expectations. Pay lower than others in area. No air conditioning in plant.

    Advice to Management

    Too much favouritism. No room for advancement. Management were not in touch with worker's needs. Spent a lot of time with small talk and not addressing known issues. Apathetic managers who would rather goof off and talk then work.

    Pros

    The relaxed atmosphere. The management is smart and driven to succeed, but they respect their employees. I feel that my input is valued. Sometimes my advice is taken, and sometimes not, and when it is not the reasons are always explained to me. Huhtamaki believes in teamwork.

    Cons

    We were created out of several mergers and acquisitions, so that is a problem. I wish we had more definitive procedures; we lack documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes I wish senior management would push things through that they know are necessary, even if employees don't want to do them.
