    I worked at Pearson Packaging Systems part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful and considerate managers. They gave gloves, ear and eye protection. Very good team work. When the machines were being fixed there was always somewhere else to help out at.

    Cons

    They could maybe eliminate the gas diesel fork lift to an electric one. It really stinks up the warehouse.

    I have been working at Pearson Packaging Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pearson Packaging is working at being more nimble and responsive to customers to meet their ever changing needs. It offers great career opportunities in both Sales and Operations. Technical skills have several paths to follow whether its Engineering (Mechanical and Controls) or at the machine and systems support and service levels.

    Cons

    If you don't like change you'll have some difficulty adapting.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adapting and communicating the companies vision

    I worked at Pearson Packaging Systems full-time

    Pros

    Experienced people to work with, forward-thinking company, high rate of retention, family-oriented atmosphere, excellent benefits package, and the tools to do your job are kept up-to-date.

    Cons

    Occasional lack of communication or information when implementing new systems, bonuses not guaranteed every year, and occasionally expected to work above your pay grade.

    I worked at Pearson Packaging Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well since this is a 5 word minimum, I'll fill the quota. There is absolutely NOTHING good about this company.

    Cons

    Absolutely one of the worst companies I ever had the misfortune of working for! I'm not sure how they have managed to stay in business for supposedly 60 years. Should of been a red flag when I was sitting in the HR department and saw 2 file cabinets of equal size. One file cabinet was labelled "Terminated employee files" and the other was "Active employee files". There is core group of the "Royal family" that runs the show. Everyone else is just subservient help. If you cross or disagree with "The Family" you will find yourself a member of "Terminated employee file" group. They claim to have 200 employee's, but the majority of them are temps. Worst training I've ever had, if you want to call technical training, working in the assembly department with temps who have only been there 2 weeks.

    Pros

    This is a company that a person could actually retire from, if that is the type of culture you are seeking. Small town, family operated.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity to grow into new rolls.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are doing great! I can’t believe such a small company is keeping up with technology. Whatever you are doing, you are doing it right!

    Pros

    Technologically progressive. Very fair salaries and benefits. Continuous improvement is a way of life. Actually do care about their people. Financially sound and expanding in a tough economy.

    Cons

    Same management for a long time. Need some new innovative blood. Some current reporting structures are not scalable for future growth. Can be a bit too risk adverse in development projects

    Advice to Management

    Need to shake up management a bit.

    I have been working at Pearson Packaging Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pearson Packaging Systems have invested tremendous resources into product development and acquisitions that have resulted in significant growth despite the "Great Recession." While many other companies struggled through the recession, Pearson has acquired two companies and positioned themselves very well for the future. This growth is creating opportunities for both personal and professional development for employees. In addition, employees are treated extremely well in terms of culture, pay, and benefits.

    Cons

    As with many well established privately owned companies, the culture of the company and some of the employees can be somewhat conservative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to emphasize a culture of continuous improvement and keep using kaizen to improve business & manufacturing processes within the company. Need to continue to develop the capability to provide customers with complete end of line solutions.
