  1. Good Job, good benefits, no room for advancement.

    I worked at NewPage

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. Benefits are good, but progressively becoming less valuable. Very talented folks around you. Training budget is very limited.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, raises are nonexistent. Facilities are not maintained and there is very little capital available to improve production.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your infrastructure. It's declining rapidly due to lack of maintenance and capital investment.

    Pros

    Flexible with a strong work/family balance. Organization generally does what is best for their employees. Benefits and compensation are probably slightly above average.

    Operations are some of the best in the US and provide quality product that is recognized throughout North America.

    Cons

    Being acquired by a competitor who has no idea what they are getting into. Very little faith in the new management, that they will have what it takes to run the company successfully.

    Pros

    Honest, hard-working leaders who want the business to succeed. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) program provides development opportunities for some of the organization.

    Cons

    Always struggling financially thus not much investment in development for the masses. (LSS is the exception). Difficult to keep up morale with frequent downsizing.

    Pros

    Good hours, good pay, good benefits, good employees. Employees work hard, contribute willingly to community needs and are just good people.

    Cons

    Management refuses to take responsibility and has a Corporate attitude where they separate what they do from the rest of the company. Some UNION attitudes at work with the employees too.

    Advice to Management

    Face the consequences of your actions and take responsibility.

    Pros

    Wages are very good. Some positions present a challenge and a sense of accomplishment. Many of your co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Not all things are as they seem. There often seems that an agenda exists but is not shared with everyone. Some positions have no chance for advancement due to union seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Most of your employees are devoted to the Company's success and work hard to be part of that success.
