    Pros

    IT is a dynamic organization filled with people who have a lot of experience. People are progressive and want to build systems and processes that are best practice if not cutting edge

    Cons

    This is an organization where people tend to stay for many years, so mobility at the senior levels can be somewhat limited.

    Advice to Management

    Provide people more lateral opportunities for upward growth eventually.

    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 Management

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