Buzz Words and BS

Manufacturing Manager (Former Employee) Moss Point, MS

ProsGood benefits, somewhat stable company, very interesting and challenging manufacturing process, opportunity to learn if the right mentor is available

ConsIncompetent, unqualified management who got to their current level by being politically correct and always appearing to succeed, when in fact they just didn't do anything of significance. IP management's solution to poor performance is to divest mills and resources to try to compensate for the fact that most of the senior leadership don't have a clue. They are mostly business, accounting, and marketing types, instead of production and manufacturing experience based.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter take your easy money while you can. The way you are going, the company won't last another 5 years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
