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 Management

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

    GP select the talents and retain their employees. Paper products are residential and commercial use, so you know this GP Corporation will be there for a long time.

    Cons

    Safety is a big deal for the company.Be safe and one incident is too many.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone start at the beginning of the race line, when you get ahead, remember where you started!

    Pros

    Really nothing worth writing about

    Cons

    Doesn't pay cost of living increase. Doesn't pay fair bonuses. Top brass makes sure it gets paid for the accomplishments of others.

    Advice to Management

    Replace entire management from the VP level on up
