It's worse since emerging from bankruptcy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AbitibiBowater

ProsThe people at the individual locations are trying hard to work within the confines of this new leadership since emergence of bankruptcy.

ConsNo flexibility to run business. Every decision has to go to the corporate office. Benefits are no longer competitive to a corporation this size.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive the leaders outside of the corporate office some flexibility to run the business. Employees lose confidence in their leaders and the leaders aren't leading, but being dictated to.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
