    Pros

    Despite a few bad actors, BKI has some very solid thinking in an industry where times are difficult almost all the time. John and a few people around him have the right thinking and that does help. With new focus on cash and lean, BKI has the tools to make good headway when times are at least better.

    Cons

    While the right thinking is in place, execution of strategy follows an old style and is too slow. Too many people have a vested interest in the status quo and people who can really execute sometimes cannot. The internal politics despite the wishes are indeed overwhelming more solid results.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Buckeye Technologies (Memphis, TN) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was set up through career services at my school. The interview was very relaxed and consisted of 3 or 4 one on one interviews with the members of the team I would be working for. The interviews were basic and mainly consisted of me telling about my background and then listening to them talk about their roles in the company.
