GP gave a big opportunity when I was young, and I took it and have not look back.

Pros

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was only an intern for a year in the IT. Compensated okay, my fellow intern was hired but was under-paid for his position. Good culture, they take care of their employees. Very corporate so beware if you're not the corporate type, it is run by the Koch Brothers. Work/life balance is good, my bosses never take their work home unless they happen to be on call.

    Cons

    Below industry average pay, okay benefits. Seems like they are scaling back and hiring more contractors, moving current employees to other areas of the company. If you're an intern and thinking about a FT job there, don't hold your breath. Did not see a whole lot of young employees. Paper industry is not doing very well but GP is an exception, they produce many more products than just paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop young employees more, they are the future that will run the company. Senior management should interact more. You don't know people by face, just names.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Replace entire management from the VP level on up
