    I worked at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. They have little turnover due to the nature of their product (sophisticated plastic packaging for mainly the food industry and pharma). The managers I worked under where very supportive. Good corporate values.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support for continued training. It is mainly a Microsoft shop (not a necessary con but little opportunity for persons in Unix/Linux field).

    I worked at Bemis full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company is great place to work. All of my co-workers were always more than willing to assist when needed. Working hours could be negotiated when needed to help me with any personal matters. Compensation was fair and in-line with market value.

    Cons

    Working in IT with a global company did require some off-hours support. This was expected and my supervisor was always sensitive to this.

    I have been working at Bemis

    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.

    I worked at Bemis full-time

    Pros

    The people were great to work with. Very friendly and welcoming. Fun culture inside and outside of work. The work/life balance was good.

    Cons

    Little to do in the Fox Valley area. Below average salary. Below average benefits. 401(k) match was nothing special and vacation package poor. While Bemis offered a stock purchase plan, its benefits were practically non-existent. The packaging market is a commoditizing industry.

    From an engineering perspective: All experiments were run on production equipment. The manufacturing/product development relationship was peculiar. It was constantly a battle to run experiments on production equipment due to output concerns at the factories. In my opinion it was not a good strategy for a company with innovation as a core value and a result of upper management bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short of moving your facilities, there is little you can do about the Fox Valley location being undesirable for some people. Make the job package itself more desirable to entice people to work (and keep working) for Bemis. Manufacturing and product development need to be able to collaborate effectively.

    I worked at Bemis

    Pros

    Good benefits. Pay is okay.
    Some leadership listens some does not. Typical in a big company.
    R&D environment seems pretty secluded. Not a lot of interaction.

    Cons

    Big company issues. I have been through 2 downsizings with this company. They seem more concerned with Wall Street than the employees.

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

    I have been working at Bemis

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

  11. So far, so good
