    Pros

    Countless opportunities to lead and take on new projects, compensation package is very attractive, company has focused on and adopted Lean principles across the business to improve efficiency and yielding greater profitability, which reaps strong rewards even when Sales are soft. Business model is sound, strategy is appropriate, goals are now tightly matched to metrics and the metrics are kept up and managed continuously.

    Cons

    Management is emotional and volatile, monthly calls with TOP 200 turn into screaming matches with lots of name calling, foul language, and knee jerk quick fix actions. Reporting calendar is so tight that getting quarter end reporting done to meet requirements requires inordinate amounts of overtime in a narrow but often repeated sequence with no recognition for the extra effort.....ever. The Materials Group seems to have better leadership than the RBIS Group.

    Advice to Management

    Address and correct irrational and emotional behavior of senior leaders in RBIS mgmt. team. Turn over numbers should speak volumes about what's going on in that business.

    Pros

    human resources management is based on strong values of being fair with employees. There are less and less companies fitting that description

    Cons

    Like most larger organizations you have to navigate through some levels of politics. It is not over the board but you need to be aware of it to progress.

    By far I have learned more about big business and about myself during my employment here.

    Pros

    Opportunities are abundant. Benefits are good. Coworkers are diverse and overall pleasant. Company focus on personal growth and development. Management encourages employees to strive for advanced positions within the organization.

    Cons

    Business goals and priorities continuously changing. Working on multiple projects that are all top priority. Budget constraints often stalled or cancelled projects in midstream. Leadership turnover rate was high at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management encourages employees to take risks, work outside the comfort zone, and aim for higher goals. The organization should take their own advice. Take a chance and do something big and different. The same procedures and processes will likely yield the same results. Why settle on that? No risk, no reward.

    Pros

    Great place to work. From what I can see they will work with you for promotions. Lots of young people with many in management positions.

    Cons

    Yearly review process is tedious but it is the same at all larger companies. In some ways I think the young people are put in management positions to reduce cost since the years of experience is certainly not there.

    Advice to Management

    Value experience more than the college someone attends.
