I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Financial Stability
Brand recognition
Focused vision
Talented leadership economic thinking not from a human capital management
Privately held
Pay/Bonus structure
Breadth of divisions = opportunities

Cons

No global presence
If you are not a white young male previously with Koch limited opportunity for advancement
Don't let those two leadership positions held by women fool you . Women and diverse candidates need not apply for senior roles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Charles you ought to check in once and awhile to be sure Market Based Management is working the way you designed especially in the area of diversity all white males running the company cannot possible have a diverse mindset.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Georgia Pacific is a well established company and would look great on a resume. The company is filled with ethical, hardworking employees that work well together and do their utmost to achieve all of the goals and expectations placed upon them.

    Cons

    It is as if employees are set up for failure. They are over-loaded with tasks, assignments and job duties. While they do not have any chance of attaining all of the expectations placed upon them, they go above and beyond to attempt to complete them all in a conscientious and diligent manner. For their hardwork and outstanding efforts, they are rewarded with disappointment for not achieving all of the unattainable list of expectations, little or no pay increases, additional duties, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be understanding of the workload that you have placed on your employees. Realize when you have stretched them beyond anyone's ability. Recognize the work and effort your employees put into the unrealistic duties, even when they know that can't acheive them all. Listen to them. Make sure they are aware of your appreciation. Understand that you have stressed them to the point where they are often exhausted. Take notice of what is accomplished instead of what wasn't. If nothing else, pay attention (and I mean really pay attention) to how much is on your employees plate and evaluate them on their performance given their situation (and don't purposely rate them low so that you don't have to justify the lack of a pay increase), then give at minimum a yearly cost of living increase to those that continue to give all they have to performing their jobs.

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation

    Pros

    They were one of the few companies that did not lay off. Bought out by a world leader in manufacturing.

    Cons

    it was an ok job very tolerable but management made it harder than it had to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the employees that do manual work on the floor and productivity would be more consitant
