    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The people get along for the most part and the pay and benefits are higher than most.

    Company being bought and split up. It will be sad to not work with many of the people I have worked with for years.

    Advice to Management

    Plant Management too lean for the amount of work expected.

    I have been working at Rexam full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Change in ownership will hopefully change the culture.

    Cons

    THE MOST NEGATIVE ATMOSPHERE YOU WILL EVER WORK IN!!! Communication is simply not existent. Long hours with no time for family. Middle management is looked upon as the odd man out and the dumping grounds for upper management and the hourly employees. If you are a motivated employee simply expect to have more thrown on your shoulders. Nothing is ever enough in the eyes of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff like you would want to be treated. Be honest with your staff and stop telling them what you "think" they want to hear.

    Pros

    The 4 days on 4 days off work week. Pay is real good here so are the benefits.

    Cons

    Its real hot in the summer inside the plant and cold in the winter. Very noisy need to wear earplugs all the time.

    Advice to Management

    To not belittle anyone! Except the workers for who they are and what they can do in their positions at their job.

    Pros

    Very accommodating. Work/Life balance is pretty good....better than most. Good environment and most folks are very friendly.

    Cons

    Some of the IT processes are not mature causing some issues/tension when trying to get projects or tasks completed. The company does acknowledge that and they are making progress to improve in that area. Also, this is manufacturing. So, IT teams are very lean.
