    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good 401(k)
    MBM at a corporate level is really interesting and insperational to listen to the people that walk the talk
    Really decent folks out on the production floor

    Cons

    Really bad leadership at the mill levels
    MBM not practiced at the Mill level
    Morale is low due to poor leadership at the mill level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step1) Senior management.....show up to a mill one day (unannounced) and just start talking to the folks out on the floor. Get the full & unfiltered message!
    Step2) after listening to the unfiltered message.....develop a plan to remove the dead-weight leadership!
    Step3) Hire some new blood that knows what continious improvement is all about!

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

    Pros

    Pay is outstanding
    Benefits are good
    Great co-workers

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. We are told on Thursdays whether or not we are to work on Saturday.
    Terrible point system. Let's just say that you better not get sick or call off because you need personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule work better. Give us a chance to have a life outside of Georgia Pacific. Employee morale is at rock bottom thoughout the plant. Most people working at the Akron Box Plant feel that management does not care about them at all.
