I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Professional working environment, respectful management.
Now that Georgia Pacific is a private company (purchased by Koch Industries) a lot of the corporate bloat was reduced down to core efficient teams. Less people and more work getting done. At least in the IT side of GP.
I really enjoyed my time at GP and felt that I was rewarded for my efforts most of the time.

Read up on Charles Koch's book market based management to see if you would be a good fit for the culture. I personally found it fit my personal values so i embraced the idea.

Cons

Big company slower to make decisions.
Management has good philosophies "Market Based Management" but not all leaders actually follow it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace Market Based Management.
Find ways to keep senior team members engaged and not too comfortable.

    Pros

    Georgia-Pacific offers employees a traditional corporate experience. Many of the experienced professionals are willing to assist entry level employees. Sound business principles. Managers are open to employee feedback. Name recognition.

    Cons

    Ideological philosophies don't always match execution and change can be slow. Younger employees may find career growth challenging and slow. Working at the company sometimes means answering uncomfortable questions about the ownership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
