    Pros

    They gave me a basic understanding of an engineering. The people were friendly and helpful whenever I had questions.

    Cons

    Lots of employee turnover while i was there. Never gave me feedback about my performance. Had to do menial tasks frequently. My development plateaued after the second month, possibly due to the lack of time everyone had or because of my performance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in co-op development. Give more feedback to interns about performance.

    I have been working at Sonoco ThermoSafe full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed visibility of top tier management and how they appreciated the bottom line workers. They showed concern for safety and overall satisfaction. They were interested in hearing about ways to improve business and over time became more interested in developing teams to implement some changes.

    Cons

    When interviewed I was told they were looking for someone to grow within the company, but whenever people within my department consider moving into a role the "emotional aspect" of having to find someone to fill the vacant spot was made known before saying congratulations. They tell you you're doing a great job, but don't allow you the opportunity to move into another role to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to evaluate their immediate supervisors or managers. Upward communication during the performance review is very one sided. Management needs to know how they can improve as well as the employees. When it comes to the employee review, if the employee hasn't been with the company for a year their review should wait until they've had a full year to be assessed. Invest in your employees so the option is to work from home. Not only for the account managers, but for all the employees. You want quality candidates and for people to stay with the company as loyal employees, but don't offer ways that not only benefits you but them.

    I worked at Sonoco ThermoSafe full-time

    Pros

    Some very savvy folks in the business and the energy level was great. Had a lot of fun working there, just needed to progress in my own career.

    Cons

    Some of the management team are oblivious to what markets they are working in and it is difficult to move quickly to market demands when the managers don't understand their own markets.
