    Pros

    Compensation is great, training is great, benefits are great

    Cons

    International paper's management positions are predetermined and minorities are not treated equally when being considered. During training instructors in their late 40's were drinking with new employees like a frat party. They also made goals and training for minorities harder than their peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales associate program needs new leadership. You are losing amazing reps that could help your company in a changing environment. Trainers look at people of different races with skills they don't have and see them as a threat. It secures their place in the company but weakens IP's chances with competition. Your company is not as diverse as you may think it is.
