Pros

practice diversity in hiring key positions, promote safety and a healthy work environment, ability to have upward mobility, good interaction between departments, health benefits, good 401K program

Cons

asked to do more with less (less support personnel, less tools to work with), too many projects and not enough internal support to see them fully develop

Advice to Management

need to look very closely at the talent pool that you are letting go do to restructuring as well as those you think are going to remain for the long haul and make sure you do a thorough job in quarterly / annual reviews

    Secure mature company, conservative and slow paced. Not a company for aggressive, intelligent, young go getters.

    Pros

    Commodity, cyclical, manufacturing industry that is mature and stable. This is a safe low stress company.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic organization, old pyramid model - old world corporate culture as IP is a 100+ years old company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to culturally change to one that is less "stodgy" and old, if you are to attract better talent.
