    I have been working at Rexam (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good compared to market value. There is flex time and some work from home opportunities. Good employees at the lower levels.

    Cons

    The company as a whole lacks processes to make them more attractive. They do not value their employees. They do not like for employees to speak up. They want you to remain silent and do as your told. They lack responsibility and accountability in many aspects. Too lean in staff to be efficient. Too many decisions made at the management level who have no idea how it affects the everyday employee.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees. Encourage employees to speak up and give input where they feel things can improve. Hire people to improve the lack of processes. Encourage employees to take true ownership of issues that exist for improvement. Research how changes affect the average employee before making things a global standard.

    Stay engaged in making the total process better.
