Pros

Domtar has good benefits,long term goals,decent wages,supervisors that care about quality over quantity. The supervisors treat you like a person and not like some lowly laborer.

Cons

Working with people that use the union to keep thier jobs instead of trying to do a good job.Working with equipment that is"fixed" to run instead of being repaired properly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the employees' that actually run the equipment, make the product, and handle the finished goods. Watch how they work and how they react to a good job done well.

    Pros

    Great people, well-organized company.

    Cons

    Politics between the two head offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some fantastic, bright people - find a way to get the two offices working well together as a team - you don't have to be in the same physical location to be perfect teams. Develop your expertise in both places and encourage growth.
