Forget going from production into management or office
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Neenah, WIMay 12, 2018
Rather then helping long term employees advance, they would rather bring in New people. Very high turn over rate at the Brooks av facility. They will pay for school, but forget getting promoted into a management or office role. If you are production employee and you go to school, find a new position outside of Menasha because they will not promote you off the floor. They make you pay some of the tuition back but you will get to use your degree else-where.

LOYALTY BUILDS LOYALTY
Pros
Pay is in the industry ballpark, active in the community, will pay for school
Cons
Does not promote production employee to management or office positions., They will come up with ridiculous excuses as to why they wont promote you., They will bring in a new person, then train them rather than promote and train long term existing employees, .

Pay and benefits are not bad, but favoritism is clear as day
Floater (Former Employee) –  Georgetown, KYMarch 26, 2018
I worked at Orbis for a little more than a year, the job itself isn't too bad. You need alot of physical strength and have to keep in mind it's 12hr shifts with only 3 breaks 3 15min and a lunch 30min it can get extremely hot inside the factory so if you can't handle a long time standing doing physical work in extreme weather this isn't the place for you. With that said management at orbis is out of control in the Georgetown location, you can be amazingly good at doing your job but if you aren't the supervisors favorite you won't be able to succeed. You can't get on the bosses bad side or tell if something is wrong because you become the bad person. Promotions sometimes aren't earned they're just given because you are "the favorite". HR in that building is a unreliable it's always someone new coming in because they can't keep the same person so you don't feel comfortable enough talking to them about the problems. This is what pushed me to quit, the lack of ability to grow in the company do to FAVORITISM. I thought I would write this review in the hope that it will help my former coworkers. Management will always blame the other employees because we don't have a loud enough voice to say what's really going on.
Pros
paid lunch, yearly bonus
Cons
favoritism, management isn't good

Great place to work
Press Operator/Set Up Technician (Former Employee) –  Menasha, WIMarch 20, 2018
Started out as a press operator and moved into the setup department. On the press it was fast paced and always worked with a good group of people. Same went for the set up department, everyone looked out for each other and made it a great place to work and a great working environment.

Fast paced exciting place to work/learn
Service Support Manager (Former Employee) –  Edwardsville, ILMarch 15, 2018
Menasha does a great job of taking care of it's employees and providing them with a fantastic experience in all but two respects. the first is it has a fair amount of contract manufacturing (at least in the area i worked). which can lead to reduced employment if large contract customers discontinue using Menahsa. Salaried employees are sometimes worked many more hours (upwards of 60-80) for extended periods (3-5 months).

the management team is exceptional and the rest of the staff work incredibly well as a team, you'll leave each day feeling like you were part of something amazing and i have no better way to describe it. Outstanding benefits, non production jobs have some flexibility in their hours.
Pros
great benefits, fantastic management
Cons
contract manufacturing

Typical warehouse culture
Front Office (Former Employee) –  IllinoisFebruary 20, 2018
The vast majority of hiring is done through a temp agency, with little to no promise of getting hired on with the actual compnay. If you're looking for a weekly paycheck with minimal benefits, this would be an optimal fit. Lack of leadership within the company fraught with hiring freezes.
Pros
Weekly paychecks
Cons
No PTO or sick days

Its productive but kind of a favoritism facility
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Bridgeview, ILFebruary 13, 2018
Fast working place, not and everyday working job. We have to call almost every morning to know if you have to come in that exact day. Waking up early is one of the main things you have to do.

Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJFebruary 9, 2018
Great benefits , management was bad . No communications or feed back . No type of room for growth . Most of my day was spent on testing and reviewing paperwork . Work culture is not so great , its more like sorority groups like in collage . The hardest part of the job was trying to improve daily task but no support from manger . The best part of the job is that its not micromanagement .
Pros

Very small town feeling that felt stuck to its ways.
Production Flex Utility (Former Employee) –  Monticello, IAFebruary 6, 2018
The work was usually just enough to keep your mind busy without being exceedingly overbearing. It was an opportunity for me to learn about the industry and meet a few helpful individuals.
There are backseat managers there that would rarely take involvement in managing anything happening in production. Because management so poorly watched over happenings it created a difficult individuals who in a way ganged up and sort of ran the show from the floor.
The hardest part of my time there was generally the workplace culture, combined with consistent negative feedback despite any effort. This negative feedback would be received from coworkers and management alike.
As far as things I really enjoyed, it would be the benefits and time off. Most of my time spent there was stressful. I often wondered about my job security through my years there.
Pros
Paid lunches, great medical, dental, and vision package.
Cons
Long shifts, extensive mandatory overtime, poor management, and failure to commitment to the 'teams' LEAF programs.

Very few good things to say about this company. Only good thing is the people. Go to McDonald's before you consider working here. Will be far less stressful.

Great place if you have nothing and are just trying to get some experience
Merchandising Specialist (Current Employee) –  Edwardsville, ILJanuary 26, 2018
In a typical shift the job consist of packaging, shipping, working the line, driving the fortk lift and working with pallets. The worst part about this job is the managament team. They didnt seem to be fully professional and attentive to the needs of the staff. The best part about this job is the fact that we get a lunch break.Getting a chance to socialize after a long and tiresome shift is at least better than nothing.
Pros
lunch breaks
Cons
pay and distance
