    I worked at MeadWestvaco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance, good salary, beautiful labs for R&D
    This was a starting job for me, so at the time I had nothing to compare it to. What was good about it was the compensation (good, not great), the experience, and the people I worked with. Is paperboard sexy and fun? No, but it provides jobs. If you work in Richmond the facilities are awesome; gym, cafeteria, and state of the art labs for R&D.

    Cons

    Office culture, time-off policies
    What was not so great was the glaring fact that this is a public company; the perception of upper management is that they value stock price far greater than employees. The culture survey really illuminated that (it wasn't good). It's an old, conservative company run by old men (don't be surprised around November when they ask everyone to vote "with the company's interests in mind"). The culture is really the worst thing; talk to the employees who have been there 20+ years and you'll understand.
    The vacation policy is lousy; 2 weeks until you're there 5 years. Then oh boy an extra 5 days!
    What really irritated me though was getting laid off after years of stellar performance. And even worse were friends getting laid off that had put in over 10 years with the company! Cool, get rid of the guy who has had solid performance and is 60 years old. What was the need for layoffs after hiring on a large amount of people? Stock price. The most important thing for the leaders of the company. Don't EVER think they will value their employees more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a path and stop doing the big hirings followed by big layoffs. Try to value employees and not just shareholders. And stop being so short-sighted with R&D; it's not an instant pay-off investment.
