My experience has had many ups and downs. Mostly ups. My main dissatisfaction lies with advancement opportunities.

Pros

The best reason to work for International Paper is the compensation. IP pays a living wage that allows its employees to make a comfortable living.

Cons

The major downside to working at International Paper is the lack of career paths and advancement opportunities. Specifically, the policy that allows managers to prevent employees from applying for internal positions without their permission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My only recommendation is that management reconsider the policy that prevents employees from applying for new positions without the current manager's approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication to the employees is critical for the success of the company. All too often we find ourselves in the dark about the companies direction

    I worked at International Paper

    Pros

    Pays well in some positions. The benefits are great and the overall goal of the company is a good one.

    Cons

    The amount of overtime forced on you is excessive. Working 30+ hours of OT on your check is not uncommon. If you work here be prepared to see a your family a lot less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company could be a better company just by filling in the empty positions on the production side of the floor. The work is enjoyable to a degree but not when you rarely see your family and friends.
