I worked at Bemis

Pros

Global company that has a small company family feel to it. Bemis allows most employees to leave to take care of family or personal issues with no questions asked. Company is progessive with technology which allows you to work with a lot of great technologies. Very little micromanagement which allows you the freedom to do your job without someone staring over your shoulder all of the time. They tend to give you "cost of living" increase every year.

Cons

IT does not have a ton of visibility from the Senior Level Management which allows for a lack in urgency in keeping up with needs especially in the facilities. This is also caused by the fact that IT has done such a good job of meeting the needs of the company that there is no perceived problem. The separation of IT between Neenah and Oshkosh creates a disconnect between what to two areas are working on which can cause issues. Certain divisions or departments have too leniency to do their own things which creates support issues and undermines policies. Salaries tend to be 10-20% below industry for the size of the company. No review process just standard raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the great environment and add value by giving IT the tools they need. Do a salary review based on what the employees are doing not what their title is and compare it to the rest of the industry. Get IT department back to one facility.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There have been a lot of changes at Bemis and many consider change as a negative. However, they seem to be improving efficiencies and making choices to be more competitive. If keeping the company competitive and profitable means we all keep our jobs, I'm all for it.

    There is opportunity to get good experience in several areas to advance career.

    Cons

    Employees get training and experience, but the pay does not always reflect experience. Employees who are with the company for a long time tend to get penalized on pay in comparison to employees hired externally.

    Communication continues to be a concern. Management and Neenah Corporate tend to keep secrets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your loyal employees with compensation, don't penalize them.

    Transparency can be a good thing! Not everything is confidential.
