    I worked at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reynolds was an excellent place to work. The members of management were all very professional and approachable, my unit manager was one of the best leaders I ever worked for, and everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The family type atmosphere was excellent and even the director of operations remembered my son’s birthday. From the top down the folks at Hefty care.

    Cons

    I left for family reasons, were it not for those I could have seen myself staying for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep automating processes

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Vacation and benefits
    Advancement opportunities
    Decent training program
    Fun atmosphere
    Free money for meeting goals i.e. audits on PPE etc (monthly Amex gift cards)
    Discounted prices at company store on most products RCP sells
    Can only be mandated to work twice a month never on saturdays and there is a whole year schedule to know when you will have to work extra
    Plenty of overtime for extra money whenever you want

    Cons

    Lack of communication at different levels of factory
    Hoops to jump through for advancement (pay for skills program)
    Lack of knowledge of operations in upper positions due to hiring outside people unfamiliar with any part of company machines process etc.
    12 hour swing shifts
    Mandate schedule

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on paperwork and the bottom line and more on employees that work hard and or that have worked there forever.

    Pros

    pay and the free coffee

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low at the Lincolnshire location. It doesn't take long to figure out who runs the show there, whom I will refer to as captain, thus avoiding titles.

    Most managers are very good, but be very careful if you are about to work for one of two terrible female managers. Everybody knows about this and avoids these managers as much as possible, but the captain turns a blind eye - he doesn't want to deal with these managers and create any waves. If there are any ethics at this location, you would never know it.

    Recently, they had to let go of some African Americans who weren't showing
    up for work. The response was to let go of a couple of white males. From what I have seen, they were good at what they did, just couldn't get along with their managers. From what I hear, there was no warning before these employees were dismissed,
    which, if true, is pretty pathetic. These people have families! Also, the captain turns a blind eye if you leave work at 3pm but only if you are in a federally protected class.

    Also, it is the only place I have ever worked at where they actually discourage documentation.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to get involved, but they are nowhere to be seen! Be colorblind - treat all people equally and don't be afraid to deal with those managers who are very difficult to work with!

    I worked at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule is GREAT. Allows for full time employment, but still allows me to have 15 monthly days for time with family and living life.
    This company makes it easy to rank up if you put forth the effort to learn.

    Cons

    There is no system in place for respect in the work place. Many employees openly show discrimination against others unlike themselves.

    I worked at Reynolds Consumer Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good brands and many nice people to work with depending on the level and department.

    Cons

    Marketing leadership is a snooze. Minimal work at all levels creating unnecessary politics. Since leaving I have taken on workload equal to Director/VP at Reynolds.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the pay because this is your main retention lever. I think it's time to sell off these brands to a new company.

    Pros

    Pay nothing more than that

    Cons

    Very bad work culture the employees run the place not the bosses or managers, especially on 2nd shift and swing shift,supervisor are never around so they do what ever they want when they want to. Very hostile work environment. People being harassed with no supervisor supervising.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of your plant! Hold your supervisor accountable, make them supervise that’s there job, supervise your supervisors. A supervisor should know where all his/her employees are at all time and they should remain in their assigned work area.
