Ball Corporation is a company that is managed well. The company is diversified and has taken innovative products to market within the last few years. The metal can and aerospace divisions contribute the greatest portion to Ball's annual income. Ball's performance in the stock market has been, and continues to be, strong.

Ball's compensation is excellent. The salary ranges leave plenty of room for growth, without being "topped out". Ball is a professional company that promotes mutual respect. Benefits at Ball are very good. Annual bonuses, affordable premiums for benefits, and fringe benefits are better than most companies. Overall, compensation at Ball is comparable other large companies.

Even in today's volatile economy, Ball is a solid company. Recent announcements of plant closings and acquisitions have placed Ball in a position to be more competitive in the marketplace. While there is no such thing as a "guaranteed job", employees who get results and exceed expectations can expect to have a long and prosperous career with Ball. The Talent Management initiatives at Ball are more structured and utilized than I have seen at my previous employers. Retirements and Ball's expanding role in the global market will create an abundance of career advancement opportunities for motivated employees in the immediate future.

Working at Ball, as a company, is a fulfilling experience. Many of Ball's facilities are located in large metropolitan areas which provide an excellent quality of life. On the other hand, some of Ball's manufacturing facilities are in rural areas. The lack of access to quality schools, government services, and health care should be considered, when relocating to rural areas. One advantage of a rural area, however, is that traffic is generally not a factor in the daily commute to work.

I recommend Ball as potential employer for any motivated person who is capable of introducing and implementing innovative ideas. The turnover at most Ball facilities is low for a reason!
