    Poor management, no communication btwn management and employees,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, work on employee retention instead of "you can be replaced" give current employees 1st chance at open positions instead of hiring straight in to those positions.

    Pros

    The people are great, and the company is an industry leader. In theory, the reorganizations have resulted in some positive changes.

    Cons

    Considering the amount of change the company has underwent, the expectations for financial performance are pretty lofty. Long term, maybe. However, the reality is that these levels of changes take some time to adjust. Also, while the restructuring has resulted in an improved organization, the infrastructure behind it makes it difficult to get things done without being overtaxed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment to consider how changes actually affect the day to day of your employees, and adjust your expectations accordingly. Build robust infrastructure into the plans as opposed to just making an organizational change and letting the everyday employees bust their tails to try and execute. Don't panic when it takes a little time for everyone to adjust.

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area

    Cons

    Old Equipment. Really need to upgrade some equipment.

    Advice to Management

    PFP is a joke. Just a carrot hanging in front of you to get you to do extra work. They are using this to take away the annual raise for most employees. Even doing the extra work might have given you the points the month before but it seems to reset every quarter.

    Pros

    Freedom to get your job done the way you think best, flexibility, beautiful new campus

    Cons

    The pay in my department specifically is well below that of other companies in this area, no bonuses, no permanent management still (as of 11/2016), did I mention horrible pay for the amount of work and stress we have?

    Advice to Management

    UP THE PAY. Everyone else in the company seems at least satisfied with the pay in their department, but ours seems to be overlooked. Everyone that chose not to relocate from Greenville is making $5 and up more per hour than we are, and we are now in a bigger city. Did I also mention we didn't get a cost of living raise? $18 an hour is rough when you're single...

    I worked at Sealed Air Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, and vacation are relatively good. Mostly climate controlled plant is great for all seasons. Pretty relaxed environment most of the time. Relatively easy work load. Easy to get along with most shift employees.

    Cons

    Forced overtime, long shifts, a lot of micromanagement. Lately they've gone through managers like a revolving door. If you have multiple qualifications you get the shaft on overtime. Engineers and management set standards on machines that most of them have never ran a day in their lives. "Supervisors" have no training to deal with employees nor the power to get anything done. If you work nightshift good luck talking to anyone in management, HR, engineering, or logistics etc. Strives for safety but every "accident" is avoidable and in most cases if it's proven you are at fault you're out the door. I could go on but I think that covers the big stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees and quit breaking the backs of the people you already have. Take into consideration that the people on the floor are the only reason you receive a paycheck, and the fact that they have lives outside work.
