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

Pros

Very relaxed atmosphere. If you are a peoples person you will fit right in. The work load was not overwhelming like some companies. There were a lot of knowledgeable staff members present.

Cons

"Tomorrow" seemed to be my sites motto. There were times when I could not complete my work because either the person was too busy or they just didn't feel like helping me at that time. The pay for interns was not as well compensated compared to other companies. From what i heard they do not pay the entry level engineers very well (3 quit while i was there), and there is little room for upward movement because people tend to stay in positions for long periods of time.
