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

    Pros

    The staff ate really nice and care about there work. Layed back atmosphere. When you ask for a day off you get it.

    Cons

    When pregis just took over the company I worked at, they fired most of the senior staff and install their own managers. These managers did not understand the industry and then relied on the senior staff to do their job. The managers spend more time in meetings with each other thinking of ideas then working with the employees. The company believes having more managers is a solution to their problems. Even though because of lack of employees, the quality of the product they produce is poor. There solution to this is temporary workers instead of full time staff, to save money. Because of this the moral of the whole facility is poor at best. Pregis is only concern with big ideas, but never thinks through how to implement these ideas. Management is out of touch with the concerns and day to day issues and just focuses on grandiose ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with your employees. Make yourself available, listen to what the senior staff have to say. Don't just come up with an idea, come up with a plan and explain to your co-workers how it will be implemented. Also if you talk about how you're understaffed actually put up job postings!

    I worked at Pregis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Great co-workers for the most part. Flex time schedule allows you to report to work either early in the morning or a bit later.

    Cons

    Yearly self evaluations which are worthless. Management not real concerned with developing talent. Not much done to improve employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to see your employees as assets to be taken care of. Develop talent and promote from within more often rather than bringing in new employees from outside the company for higher up positions.

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

    Pros

    The teamwork and comradery at the plant level between both management and associates is incredible. I was blessed to work with some amazing individuals and a team that never quit no matter how difficult things got or the obstacles in our way.

    Cons

    Over burdened plant management with lack of support from senior management. Company has been bought and sold by multiple private equities trying to squeeze every penny out of old equipment and poorly executed "lean" solutions. New senior management for operations rotating out every couple of years makes a defined and committed vision difficult to achieve. Large divide between different divisions of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees safe, healthy, and supported. Quarter results do not a year or career make.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere. Great pay and benefits. Great people. Medium size company but everyone has a name. Fast paced

    Cons

    There are not many cons. The only downfall is that Pregis is dealing with growing pains, which is not necessarily a problem.
