    Pros

    Rexam are highly professional in can making with some world class engineering and focus on LEAN Six Sigma which makes them extremely productive and gives the opportunity to develop leading edge experience in these fields.
    The workforce in beverage can plants are well paid with above market fringe benefits resulting in low turnover, but with an ageing demographic

    Cons

    The corporate PLC Headquarters in Millbank London is a different story. It has been a revolving door over the last six years with initiatives such as 'Rexam Way' and the buildup of the Plastics Sector stopping suddenly, going into reverse and disbanding. So if you're joining as part of a new initiative then beware that you are not just flavour of the month- check for long term commitment

    Advice to Management

    There aren't many British manufacturers left - we understand the challenging environment. CEO and CFO seemed to have a problem trusting their senior team and this filtered through the leadership

  5. Ok as an employer as long as you just get on with your job. However they are very strong on micromanaging.

    Pros

    Head office is a nice environment. Free lunch and coffee.

    Cons

    Pay is below average for a company of rexam's size. Getting out at 5pm is difficult as the traffic congestion is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Stop centralizing everything and give people some freedom to do their job. The leadership team in Luton should stop wasting money on travel and hiring private jets as this sends out the wrong message.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good compared to market value. There is flex time and some work from home opportunities. Good employees at the lower levels.

    Cons

    The company as a whole lacks processes to make them more attractive. They do not value their employees. They do not like for employees to speak up. They want you to remain silent and do as your told. They lack responsibility and accountability in many aspects. Too lean in staff to be efficient. Too many decisions made at the management level who have no idea how it affects the everyday employee.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees. Encourage employees to speak up and give input where they feel things can improve. Hire people to improve the lack of processes. Encourage employees to take true ownership of issues that exist for improvement. Research how changes affect the average employee before making things a global standard.

    Pros

    Great environment. Very interesting technologies, tools and knowledges to learn. Great people unless they were forced to follow up the "Rexam Way". Impressive attempts to bilding up top-down 2way communication with the employees. Good pay.

    Cons

    Absolutely corrupted integrity of the core management team in some of the local offices.

    Advice to Management

    Start doing of what you declare. Stop to lie. Be humanly honset at least. Don't set on fire the people who do care about the company benefits prior to your manager's benefits.
