Pros

Atmosphere is friendly. Rate of pay is okay. Opportunity to advance if you play the game their way. Occasionally proactive to situations.

Cons

Management has HUGE problems communicating effectively or accurately to their employees or perspective (contract) employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to tell the truth and not WALK on your employees. Remember you came from somewhere.

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

    Pros

    Nice hourly people, benefits are stable

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get 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

    I worked at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Parking is good. Lots of places to go if you need to get away for lunch (if you are allowed).

    Cons

    No advancement for someone who isn't related to someone already in an advanced position or if you don't have a mechanical engineering degree. HR is a joke. If you have any issues they will not be handled appropriately or quietly. Management is slow to praise but very quick to pass the buck as well as the blame. Many managers can't manage and instead of being let go or demoted they are promoted or moved to manage a different angle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step out of your comfort zone and let go those you know can't manage. Embrace those who are true leaders and have great knowledge. Respect those below you and respond to their innovation, as you claim the company is based on innovation. Remember your hourly employees sacrifice a lot with the swing shifts they work.
