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.

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    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

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time for 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.
