Sexual Discrimination

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bemis full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNice hourly people, benefits are stable

ConsThe worst place for women to work, you are literally treated like you are in the 50's. It is just a matter of time before they get a class action lawsuit in discrimination. Never seen so many managers with huge ego's and bullying as a leadership style

Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times, know that women are a contributing species. Really try to find managers that are transforming, not tearing down. Really get with the times

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

You could not work for a more company more hostile towards its lower level employees

Press Operator (Current Employee)
Terre Haute, IN (US)

I have been working at Bemis

ProsIts a pay check and has decent benefits. But they will never hire another full time employee only season help and temp workers.

ConsConstant policy changes designed to write up and fire as many hourly employees as possible.
Constant harassment from management.
Now matter what you do or how good you do it it is never enough.
Unequal treatment between employees.
They hire people to run departments that have no clue about the production process for the department.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit changing policies every week. When your employees tell there is a problem listen. Employee morale is important and right now it cant get much lower. Learn to cooperate with the bargaining unit. They are not your enemy but are there to help.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
