    I have been working at Sealed Air Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively interesting material. Gave a lot of potential for self-direction on some projects. Friendly employees

    Cons

    Was stuck in the middle of the relocation of HQ to Charlotte NC which meant the Danbury facility was empty and losing staff every day. Tasks given were repetitive and quite boring.

    I have been working at Sealed Air Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mission and values are admirable. The work we are doing is exciting for the world; working for Sealed Air is being a part of something big, not just raking in a salary.

    Cons

    They've abandoned any employees not willing to relocate to global headquarters. It's a huge loss to the local economy (Racine), and the company is sacrificing years of knowledge and talent they are leaving behind.

    Advice to Management

    Local and Middle management is outstanding. However, do to relocation and public statements from Senior Management, I suggest they invest more in existing talent instead of trying to force them into a box. Claiming they are not engaged because they wont relocate is offensive and inaccurate.
