    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.

    Pros

    Stable company with good training and retention. Strong policies for advancement. Managers are good at working with people and are helpful.

    Cons

    Economic downturn has hit it pretty hard. Culture is somewhat stagnated in the past. Since it is such a large company, it's very slow to react.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep instituting change and things will turn around soon
