Not the same company that it used to be.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Caraustar

ProsDecent compensation and benefits. One of the few employers in metro atlanta located in the suburbs with much better traffic than average.

ConsUsed to be a place that felt like a family. The new leadership put in place several years back was the beginning of the end. Sr. management is concerned with what is best for the individual and not the best for the team/company as a whole.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication among divisions, departments and all levels of employment. Do the right thing and strive to retain the best people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
