    Pros

    Great company, good work life balance. Everyone is friendly and smiles which means a lot! You really don't mind coming to work. Low to "no" pressure environment.

    Unlike other companies they make a concerted effort to provide you with all the tools and resources to effectively do your job - which speaks volumes. The company as a whole has very low turnover, and lot's of positive energy. Also, the compensation is "well above average". Despite the slow decline in paper, the company has recently diversified its portfolio to include personal care products. This was not only a great business move, but will lend to the continued long Gevity and continued sucess of this fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting employees. Continue fostering a supportive and non-micromanaged environment. Stay true to your core values and remain approachable.

    Great Environment. Clean. Green. Employee Appreciation

    Cons

    Hard to move up. It's easy to get stuck in your role. Company tends to look outside and even pay fees for talent instead of looking inside

    Advice to Management

    Do Succession Planning to assess and utilize talent.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the culture, the flexibility of some departments, the team aspect of the organization and they had great benefits.

    Cons

    The company is not very diverse when it comes to women and minorities in management and there are no principles in place to promote development to advance.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO John Williams is a beautiful individual and a lot has been done to developed the mangers! I would advise them to begin developing there non management employees as well.

    Pros

    Medical when I was there covered me and my domestic partner, and still covered both of us the same when married. Also included was life insurance for both of us.

    Cons

    It takes some doing with people at the local plant to get paperwork straight, as headquarters is in Canada, and I was working in Southern California. Never did get marital status straight in the end.

    Advice to Management

    I would have liked to stay with the company if the option was available to move up to an engineering level.
