    I worked at Tekni-Plex (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Tekni-plex leadership team is a solid group of accessible people.The CEO answers every email within a day or so. They go to great lengths making sure the divisions are sharing best practices.

    Cons

    The So Cal division is sometimes disconnected from the east coast. This particular site has challenges with maintaining site leadership presence. Therefore building a cohesive team can be a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Provide regular feed back and support to the So Cal site to ensure they are getting the resources they need to be successful.

    I have been working at Tekni-Plex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great starting pay...unfortunately, that is all that is great about the company. There are some good people working within the company, but sadly are not treated with dignity or respect.

    Cons

    Driven by profit, yet can not achieve their goals due to lack of production's part, in other words lack of cooperation. Also, numbers are fudged on monthly sales reports to make the plant appear to be more profitable when in fact, it is a sinking ship. Catty work environment, if you are smart, educated, and have experience, you can almost be sure that your ideas, thoughts, work, etc will not be appreciated because it is old school. Outdated office, equipment, software, the list goes on. Management is frequently bad mouthing employees, production is talked down to and harassed. Overall, a catty work environment where office personnel creates tension among the production supervisors and other in house employees.

    Advice to Management

    My advice - get rid of the problem eggs and start fresh. The company needs new fresh ideas in order to succeed. If not, Natvar will be closed in less than two years. Invest in training!!!!

    Pros

    Business is focused on growth and investing into the company. Free coffee and most people are low key. Benefits are comparable with the market.

    Everyone in management looking out for themselves. Lack of team work building and direction from management, who is always too busy for you unless something is not going well for them.
