Talent Acquisition Partner (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 15, 2018
Thoroughly enjoyed my time here, wish they would have had the capacity to hire this position perm. If you are going into HR with this company I would HIGHLY suggest doing your homework on how you would like to operate and make sure it is exactly how the current team does.

Once a great place
IS TELECOM VENDOR MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 26, 2018
Sealed Air was once a wonderful place to work. After years of being a premier employer, they have taken on the mantra less with more. Employees have gone from being an asset to being just a Cog.

Would not recommend
Finance (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 23, 2018
Management is very disorganized and everything always ends up as an urgent request. No clear direction. You do work and it's has to be re-done because the expectations weren't clearly laid out. No appreciation or acknowledgement.
Pros
Nice campus with gym and bistro, and coffee house
Cons
Long hours, constant disarray

Credit & Collection Specialist, Trainee (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 18, 2018
Typical day at work would include communicating with customers regarding aged or current account balances. Drafted thorough understanding of the Sealed Air customer consignment, and order process, while facilitating calls to accounts, sets up meetings with customers and the National Account Mgr., suggesting new process to effect the reconciliation of past due receivables for my assigned portfolio. Prepared G/L documentation for A/R Month End reports to review with management. Also preparing write off details for both bad debt and sales adjustments with detailed explanation. Researched misapplied payments, short paid invoices, duplicated credits, freight issues, and sales tax adjustments to determine root cause solutions. Developed and maintain professional working relationships with National Account Managers, Outside Sales Associates, Branch Supervisors and National Account Coordinators to coordinate credit and reconciliation activities.
Pros
Department outings & work from capabilities...
Cons
Upper management communication...

Sealed Air Average company
Senior Vendor Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 5, 2018
Sealed Air is an average company to work for. Open office concept, highly chaotic environment. Constantly changing and cost cutting; not in growth mode.
Pros
Get to wear jeans every day.
Cons
Must back in parking space

Going through so many changes in management and work loads
Operator (Current Employee) –  Simpsonville, SCAugust 18, 2018
Used to be a decent place to work at. Now due to so many changes in Management and the work environment it seems not to be stable anymore. I've been there a long time and it seems there is no room for advancement for some and more for others. Nepotism is practiced in some areas of the company which is great for some and bad for others
Pros
Salary is good
Cons
Nepotism is practiced in some areas

Financial Analyst, Product Care - North America (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 31, 2018
Pretty decent place depending what department you are in. Some departments have very laid back and relaxed rules but some (mine) are very strict and push to get every drop out of you. It has burned me out.
Cons
Expensive deductible health plans, no balance

It's a job!!
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Simpsonville, SCJuly 26, 2018
Long hours and mandatory overtime required.
Very quick burnout. No work or home life balance 12 looooong hours in a manufacture plant with possible mandatory overtime on your off days. Subpar training. No consideration given in the different levels of learning abilities and capabilities each individual person has. Morale has dropped even more in last few years. Everyone comes in miserable and tired from the work load.
So if you have no life, no wife, husband or kids this is the ideal place.
Pros
Weekly pay
Cons
Long work hours

Identity and Access Management Analyst (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 25, 2018
Sealed Air relocated its global headquarters to Charlotte NC in 2015 and was rapidly growing its workforce. After selling off the Diversey business in 2017, it started a round of mass layoffs and the current environment, at least in the IT department, is one of great insecurity and wondering "who's next".
