Pros

Culture is very flexible and want you to improve yourself. They want you to challenge each other even your supervisors to find the best solution for a problem.

Cons

Entry-level jobs are few and they mostly look for more experience in the IT sector. they will pass up new employee who they can shape in their own culture for someone who will demand more pay because of their experience.

    MBM - Great concept but no where to be found in practice. An absolute vanishing fog in practice!

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great build-up during the recruiting process - enjoy it while it lasts! Forget about raises and bonuses - Even the Science of Success indicates the are unlimited but in 3 years unlimited = 0; even with exemplary Safety/Quality/Service/Cost and financial results.

    Cons

    Severe micro-management defies a Guiding Principle anywhere remotely resembling Principled Entrepreneurship. An understandable outcome brought on by current severe financial losses in Gypsum but, only if paid analysts would get out of Atlanta, visit the sites and understood the business, it's products, it's site resources, equipment and capabilities; Even better the manufacturing processes and the products produced!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the Science of Success very slowly, put it down, reread it, put it down and repeat 10 times. There is some very good advice on how to run a business successfully in there - especially considering the total absence of common sense and logic!! Get out of Atlanta frequently enough to understand that resources in the Plants generate the $$$ that allow you to enjoy the Pink Palace!

    Pros

    Mill I worked at was great. Manager has my own best interest at heart. Can work wherever there are opening company wide.

    Cons

    Frustrating at times to move projects forward due to hoops you have to jump through. Salary wasn't as high as what competitors can offer.
