Good company, but there's concern about its direction.

IT Professional (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO (US)

I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe company has decent benefits and fair salaries including a pension plan. Most management is great to work for. Pleasant work environment with lots of great people. Generally nice facilities. Many staffers love the company and treat it like their own. If you're under 50, it can be a great place to work.

ConsEmployee loyalty and length of service is not rewarded. New breed of executives are mostly concerned about themselves and not the company. Major effort underway to get rid of longterm employees over 50. Middle managers are often stressed out and worried about their jobs. Decisions are often made for CYA purposes.

Advice to Senior ManagementReplace the CIO. He's a horrific manager who is egotistical, derisive, and blind to researched facts & opinions that don't coincide with his agenda. Many staffers and plant personnel would do anything for this company, but no longer believe management feels the same.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
