Solid Company, but not as employee friendly as it was Pre-Koch

I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Large Company, easy to transfer to different divisions or functions. Mostly merit based promotions as opposed to tenure. Generally competitive benefits. Market Based Management keeps the company from making major mistakes.

Cons

Libertarian ownership sometimes misses the fact that they are competing against non-libertarian employers for top employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on non-monetary compensation for employees. Change the culture to be more pay for performance.

    Pros

    Good pay. The work conditions vary throughout the mill, but most areas are pretty good. Maintenance is treated pretty well.

    Cons

    The culture and attitude of the workers is a little toxic. A lot of complaining and undercutting.
