    I worked at Ball Corporation

    Pros

    Good benefits, good group of people to work with, some have good team spirit, good management at times others not so good.

    Cons

    Union plant - hard to work with some people and get rid of the 'deadwood', lots of having to work overtime or weekends at last minute,

    I have been working at Ball Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employees are helpful and supportive. Company tries to give kudos by offering service awards for every 5 years of service. Compensation is very competitive.

    Cons

    Many people working at Ball are contingent, or contract workers. Frustrating when many have years of service, but are still in contract positions. (Benefits do not have to be paid out that way.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better consideration should be given to those you keep (as contingent workers), as far as hiring them on permanently. Does it make sense to have to train new employees over and over? Or utilize those who obviously have been doing a good job for you -- (without benefits).

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Employee 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 ManagementAdvice

    Replace 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.
