I worked at Bemis

Pros

Global company that has a small company family feel to it. Bemis allows most employees to leave to take care of family or personal issues with no questions asked. Company is progessive with technology which allows you to work with a lot of great technologies. Very little micromanagement which allows you the freedom to do your job without someone staring over your shoulder all of the time. They tend to give you "cost of living" increase every year.

Cons

IT does not have a ton of visibility from the Senior Level Management which allows for a lack in urgency in keeping up with needs especially in the facilities. This is also caused by the fact that IT has done such a good job of meeting the needs of the company that there is no perceived problem. The separation of IT between Neenah and Oshkosh creates a disconnect between what to two areas are working on which can cause issues. Certain divisions or departments have too leniency to do their own things which creates support issues and undermines policies. Salaries tend to be 10-20% below industry for the size of the company. No review process just standard raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the great environment and add value by giving IT the tools they need. Do a salary review based on what the employees are doing not what their title is and compare it to the rest of the industry. Get IT department back to one facility.

    I have been working at Bemis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Executive management
    Good coworkers
    Safety conscious
    Reasonable work life balance
    Plants are very well run

    Cons

    Some middle managers are very poor leaders and micromanagers
    Pay significantly lacking, greatly trails the market for similar experience and duties
    Not promoting from within. When employees aren't promoted, doesn't that reflect poorly on middle management?
    Regular layoffs and plant closings create an environment of always watching your back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the areas with high turnover, are all of those employees bad or dissatisfied for the same reason?
