    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.

    Pros

    Benefits were competative in the industry. Waco and Delaware facilities are very nice.

    Cons

    Automatic default to a previous acquistion's policies and procedures even if more manual and antiquated. Complete lack of leadership from the Personal Care Divsion.
