I worked at Sonoco Products

Pros

Senior Leadership excellent. Great community. Company has fantastic potential and will continue to be successful.

Cons

Understaffed. Does not welcome "outsiders" into their "culture." It is great if born and raised in Hartsville or if parents/family members have worked for the company. Also, HR department, benefits, etc. VERY antiquated. Senior management strong, but lots of turf fighting among middle managers - which leads to bad decision making.

Approves of CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best part of Sonoco was how open the management staff was with fellow Sonoco employees. Each manager I encountered was very kind and helpful, while more than willing to explain terms or fundamentals that you do not quite understand. I feel this is a huge asset to the company and managers should continue this process; it makes employees feel like they are not alone.
