Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture is definitely younger males are held in high regard. I believe they could benefit by going through their records of current employees to fill positions in house. They shouldn't hire outside until they offer in house first. When a few people left then came back their seniority was intact and that left a lot of others shaking their heads as they thought they had moved up. Not good.

What I like about the company

I really enjoyed working at Huhtamaki America because I felt like I was part of a team. The pay is fair. 401 match. Every other weekend off.

What I dislike about the company

Older workers were not looked at as a asset and were passed over for advancement. The hiring process left little room to talk about your education. Just because someone is older doesn't mean they haven't kept up with technology. People were stereotyped to much and they missed opportunities that were offered to the "younger" employees without the benefit of somebody even looking at their resume. Great place for people just starting out.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More transparency from CEO about the company and any strategic info managers might need

What I like about the company

The culture here is very open and friendly and you are not micro managed. We are encouraged to collaborate across teams and there is a sense of open doors and transparency

What I dislike about the company

I feel like women are not devalued so much as overlooked in a traditionally male working environment. Also the CEO is laid back and seems friendly there is not much direcg communication from him

Support from management

Management has no sense in direction, nor the best interests with their employee

Teamwork

Teamwork has diminished due to the lack of vision within all departments

Career Development

They promise career advancements but will never promotors from within. This is mainly due to "you're too valuable" where you are mentality and they do not shy away from telling you this

Overall compensation for your work

This is diminishing rather quickly. Wages and pay raises are based on what they "feel" you deserve based on imaginary data on your workmanship, but never actually take the time to actually mentor or asses employee workmanship

Work-Life Balance

They will constantly change your schedule or give unnecessary "mandatory" overtime

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take criticism and opinions of employees more serious. Management should learn to be more trustworthy and reliable to further improve the future of this company.

What I like about the company

The environment and people

What I dislike about the company

Lack of leadership, lack of communication, no sense in direction, the hope of "promises" and biggest one by far! No career advancement opportunities
