Great Company
Customer Experience Director, North America (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 28, 2018
Sealed Air has been a great company for me during the past 11 years. I have grown within the company and enjoyed many opportunities. Most recently I have been in charge of the operational Customer Service team in North America, recently re-branded to Customer Experience. In this job and in previous jobs Sealed Air has given me the opportunity to learn and grow in project management, problem solving and leadership skills. If you want to and demonstrate capability, opportunities are present at Sealed Air.
Pros
Opportunity for advancement, new experiences, International relocation to Mexico and Brasil.
Cons
Sometimes lack of management support.

Director of Business Intelligence (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 7, 2018
A company moving toward IT reliance on artificial intelligence, Big Data and Machine Learning solutions. Management is quick to make decisions and expects quick response to issues. Project management is a combination of waterfall and Agile methodology.

MAINTENANCE TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Simpsonville, SCOctober 29, 2018
In the last year Sealed Air in Simpsonville received a new CEO and plant manager. I have talked with the plant manager, and his ideas and goals for the plant are good. The down side is he has to get corporate to work with him. In a whole Sealed Air is a good place to work. Like all companies they have their flaws, but none of which can not be over come.
Pros
Good benefits, and adequate pay for the region.
Cons
Needs a better work shift

Swing-Shifts
Plant Helper/3rd Hand (Former Employee) –  Modena, PANovember 24, 2018
swing shifts can be a pain if you're not fully commited to a changing sleep schedule for this job. Other than that management and co-workers all get along decently. Typical day of work is making the machine run to make paper. The most enjoyable part about this job was the sense of responsibility and ability to act and work on your own.

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

Not bad if you can take lot of Stress
Machine Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Simpsonville, SCOctober 30, 2018
Not just your 40 hours per week, work 26 days straight then 2 days off. Hardest part is dealing with stress. Good ole' boy system and cliques. Upper management doesn't know what lower level does. Slow about job advancement in some sections.
Pros
Great Pay, Benefits
Cons
High Stress, No teamwork

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

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

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Saint Joseph, MOOctober 14, 2018
It provided me a living and an experience I will never forget. The company did try to do the right thing. Unfortunately people are a different story, it was a clique environment. You had to really know people in order for things to happen in your career.

Fun place to work, but with long hours
Accountant (Former Employee) –  Duncan, SCOctober 31, 2018
16+ hour days were normal during quarter and annual closes, but everything else was great. The coworkers were friendly and helpful, and management knew what they wanted but were fair enough to let you do it without micromanaging.

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".

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
