Sr. Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee) – Westminster, CO – February 19, 2018
I came in for a 6 month contract, will be here >20 months. I have enjoyed working here, with a great Knowledgeable Team and Management. Everyone Treats you with respect and like family. Allowed to work from home one day a week, and if you have a package or other need to work from home they let you do it. As a contractor you are treated as an employee, you are expected to act like one also. Contract is coming to an end but if they call me back later depending on my circumstance I would accept without much thought.
Work from home one day a week, Great Management and Team

Never have I seen upper management actually yell at employees. NEVER before Ball verona. NEVER have i seen sn employee written up for not doing something that they were never told to do. They just should have known. Never have i seen shift supervisors blamed for everything that happens. I was only here a few months. The work itself isnt bad. Its the management that makes it unbearable. The hastle is not worth the low pay.

This is a fantastic place to work. Talent is recognized and dedication is rewarded. True environment of inclusiveness and family. You've got to WANT to screw up at this place in order to do so. It's really that simple. Most positive job experience I've ever had and it just keeps getting better. Most of the complaining comes from a sense of entitlement some employees carry. Yes, it's a job...they actually expect you to perform your duties. That doesn't seem like too much to ask. Bonuses, continuous incentives for EVERYTHING, amazing benefits package, great pay, good people...sounds like a great place to work to me. You're not joining a team...you're joining a family. I'd recommend this place to anyone. Long shifts, though...and it's an industrial facility which means it's loud, dirty and has extreme temperature variances. But, if you are willing to accept those challenges and are willing to simply do your job, you'll probably like working at Ball Verona.

Micromanage everything. No minorities in management. Managers yell at people and one manager said "its not ok for people to make mistakes." Infighting between production and maintenance stay away if you have a choice.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Verona, VA – January 30, 2018
The plant manager is a tyrant and many of his staff are referred to as puppets by the hourly folks. Micro-management is an overwhelming understatement to describe the practices. Supervisors have to send an update to the production manager mid-shift then have to field calls from the plant manager a little closer to the end of the shift. Just to let them know what’s going on. Even though both will be in to the plant in a couple hours. No minorities in management at this plant. Most hourly folks are looking for other employment. They did just increase starting pay but still well below at least 15 other facilities in the area. Unless you have no choice, stay away from this place.
Director of Sales (Former Employee) – Broomfield, CO – January 29, 2018
Great company with a great history and great culture. The global leader in the beverage can market. Wide range of customer from startups to multinational corporations. Wide variety of career paths are available for those that want to get ahead. A big shift in the focus on diversity and inclusion have made it even better.
Challenging work environment, great people, fun market
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Springdale, AR – January 25, 2018
Old company with futuristic ideas. The beverage and the aerospace divisions will continue to grow and sustain the companies growth. Unfortunately, they missed opportunities in the food and aerosol division and are being out performed by their competitors.

I wrote this review because there has been very important positive changes in the last 2 years that have improved attitudes in the plant, most importantly in the last few months, but there are still improvements that can be made. Examples are 2 new hired supervisors, Maintenance and Production both have improved their departments with their attitude and leadership abilities. Pay has increased and has become more competitive with other companies in our area. This is a job that if you're dedicated and hard working you'll be noticed and valued and have a potential to grow within the company. The work can be hard and dirty since we are a foundry but if you have skills and are just starting out or tired of feeling like a number, give this place a try.
Maintainer (Former Employee) – Monticello, IN – January 17, 2018
Was a good company to work for until there current plant manager came and brought all his buddies with him from plants that where shut down. Watch your back alot of back stabbers and snakes / an don't ever do something wrong and get a last chance agreement cause if you do something wrong 5 years later you'll be fired
fellow workers, pay
Heat, low morale, poor management, last chance agreements
it was a good place to work until they started swapping out management.
End Line Operator/ Palletizer Operator (Former Employee) – Reidsville North Carolina – January 5, 2018
ball shut down in June 2017 in Reidsvile NC. My last day was June 30,2017. I worked there for 18 yrs.I worked 12 hr. shifts, days for 3 months and nights for 3 months. rotated shifts every 3 months. I could sit down when machines were running well. I didn't have to stand the whole shift. Ball was a union plant. Ball had great pay and great benefits.
great pay, great benefits
employees that had been there for 38 yrs. or more thought they owned the place.
Technician (Former Employee) – Ohio – December 10, 2017
Very dishonest people that think they are more than what the really are. Kind of funny to see fake smiles on these irritating faces that almost seem like a mask. Pure phony people there that are scared to death of a union.
