    Pros

    Good opportunity for growth or different opportunities within the company. Pleased with new CEO and feel new vision takes company in the right direction. Great employees to work with.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are only in Fox Valley area of Wisconsin if not working in a manufacturing plant. Not a very diverse company.

    Pros

    Company is overall great to work for. Competitive pay and excellent benefits. Have never really felt like it is a dog eat dog kind of environment. Managers and interdepartmental and facility colleagues are supportive and helpful. You feel like you're part of a team.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times when dealing with difficult customers. Company can feel a little too big from time to time which can make interaction with colleagues outside of your department or direct facility impersonal.

    OK place to work but does not pay as well as other companies.

    Pros

    Challenging work for the self-motivated. Company has grown significantly and has tried to keep the small company feel.

    Cons

    Stress of becoming a big company is evident in the working environment. Not always consistent direction from group leaders in job duties.

    Advice to Management

    There appears some disconnects in mid management levels in taking corporate strategic directions and implementing the logistics at lower levels of the organization.

    Pros

    very good pay for the area benefits are good , also good advancement opportunity just have to work hard and be a productive team member. Management at bemis promotes and fosters Safety programs the company truly put safety first. Good training for employee application also cogitative training, its like everything else in this country you have to work for it.

    Cons

    They live up to contract we made, they gave me a job benefits and pay and i agreed to work for it, that's all they expect.
    Safety protects people and Quality protects jobs you create your own job security!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Good WORK

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Executive management
    Good coworkers
    Safety conscious
    Reasonable work life balance
    Plants are very well run

    Cons

    Some middle managers are very poor leaders and micromanagers
    Pay significantly lacking, greatly trails the market for similar experience and duties
    Not promoting from within. When employees aren't promoted, doesn't that reflect poorly on middle management?
    Regular layoffs and plant closings create an environment of always watching your back

    Advice to Management

    Look at the areas with high turnover, are all of those employees bad or dissatisfied for the same reason?

    Pros

    I love most aspects of the job at Bemis even during the tough economic times, they stayed positive.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower that what can be achieved at similar positions elsewhere in the area. It is much more difficult to advance in the manufacturing side of the business, than on the corporate side.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like the people with the most seniority were treated the worst.

    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 Management

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

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