Great place to work
Quality Control Inspector III (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COJanuary 13, 2017
If you have a chance to work with Ball Aerospace, I would highly suggest to except it. Great company, that cares for it's employees. Yearly chances of promotions and raises. Very organized and respected work place.

Even if works slows down, they will try to find you work in other areas before laying anyone off.
Pros
Benefits and flex hours
Cons
none

Leaving soon (Former Employee) –  Fairborn, OHNovember 20, 2016
Seemingly honest business practices; many competent people; supportive staff and co-workers. High performance expectations that often require extraordinary effort. Professional culture with high integrity.
Pros
Salaries are among the best in the area, the culture is very professional
Cons
Essentially no opportunities for advancement, work/life balance is a myth, the number of vacation days is low for a professional company, management rarely acknowledges extraordinary effort

Unfriendly and inefficient
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Lafayette, COJune 14, 2016
The culture is terrible. People are cold and unwelcoming to new people. Younger people are not treated well. Nobody seems to have enough work to do. There is a lot of cross training and micro-managing. The technology is poor, no laptops, no working remotely, and no fun!
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Unwelcoming culture

Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Hubbard, OHOctober 10, 2015
worked a 58 hour week, The USW is not a benefit for new employees, no raises until next contract year 2018. You get bumped off of jobs if a senior wants your position for the day. Had less than a week notice for a move to second shift. No vacation days for a year, then have to take the whole week at one time. Only a few people get a vacation day at a time out of whole plant, so don't even get the days you wish.

Facilities Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Boulder, COAugust 26, 2015
The employees and management seemed to be less focused on what they can do for the company and more on what they can beg, borrow, steal or manipulate out of the company. Alot of passive aggressive behavior by those that have been there for multiple years without recourse or dicipline from management.
Pros
flexability of schedule
Cons
Low productivity and ignorace seemed to be rewarded??

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Boulder, CONovember 8, 2014
The best thing about Ball is the people. There is a good work life balance and the work is interesting. The hardest part of the job is getting used to an Aerospace environment. There is a lot of paperwork involved compared to the private world.
