    I have been working at Mactac (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well paid, good benefits, friendly, some very smart people on board, wide variety of experiences, potential room for advancement, can wear many hats. A large amount of people have been here more than ten years. Honestly, it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    There is an obvious disconnect between the office staff and production, so essential communication can be poor at times. Lots of veterans near retirement within the next 10 years without many younger employees, which may lead to future issues. Due to much of the staff being older, some can be a little too stuck in their ways. The work isn't always exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Try to utilize your employees to their full potential. Don't be afraid to let go of people. Use better advertisement for job openings; with the salaries offered, you can be much more selective to get the best of the best.

    I have been working at Mactac full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is always open to new ideas and new strategies. I never feel like I am unable to suggest something or make a comment. The mix of people are anywhere between 40 years and a few months of working at Mactac and all extremely willing to help with any project.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to be willing to wear many hats. This can be seen as a pro and con. In my job, I am not only involved in my main tasks but also involved in many other projects. To me, this is seen as opportunities but others might see this as distracting. You choose!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication flowing and holding everyone accountable to their tasks.

    I have been working at Mactac full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Owned by Bemis, good benefits, reasonable pay, stable customer base. Company will invest money into equipment and R&D when reasonable payback is expected.

    Cons

    Management has become very poor, often times making very bad decisions that negatively affect the production workers; but management individuals are not then personally held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and then stick to a long range plan. Stop issuing conflicting and confusion decisions to the shop floor.

    The peoplea are great, the job stability is good, the salary is competitive and the benefits are decent, the working hours are somewhat flexible.

    Overall management is doing a great job, and the comapny is healthy. I think the HR dept took a couple of steps downward in professionalism.
