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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, decent benefits, 40 hour week for most employees, adequate pay for the area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for growth, unless you well connected. If you do get a promotion, it will only reflect your title, without change in pay. Poor communication from upper management. Company is behind on innovation side of things.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Hours are available for a regular paycheck.

    Cons

    management is not very informed, doesn't know what is going on as far as the job goes. Management plays favorites and there is no one to voice concerns to who will actually listen. As far as promotions, they will hire outside of the department and even out of the company and train that individual instead of hiring a honest, hard working employee who has been doing the job for 7 years. Wish there was upper management who cared enough to know what is going on and know that logistic wise, they are losing a ton of money. Money is being wasted on new signage and new parking lots for corporate but cant make the lots bigger for the semis for business purposes. Many semis lined up down the road because there is not enough room to enter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get management out of the company who do not know what they are doing. Make sure if they are managing a team, they know how to operate the machinery themselves. There is so much going wrong on the inside and there is no way for employees to be heard other than dealing with a manger who doesn't know whats going on or going to HR who has no idea how operations work on the inside either. Is there a CEO who cares to know. Would be willing to discuss!

    Non Caring Company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Bemis

    Pros

    Used to be a really good company to work for till they merged with Alcan

    Cons

    Customer Service in Hazleton, Pa was let go with little compassion from upper management. We had the choice of moving or taking the most awful severance pay ever. Your job is not safe unless you work in WI, fake you know what your doing because you have a degree from an Ivy League School and know how to cry when the time suits you, or you are a young person who can push out a senior person. This company does not care about you. stay Away!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. ethics, trust. Do you even know what that is? Your business decision affected a lot of people and families

    I have been working at Bemis full-time for 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
