I worked at International Paper

Pros

Good friends help overcome myopic leadership and the fraternity that removed value from sales process

Cons

Leadership lost focus - too many accountants - not enough people involved with the customer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Differentiation and value is created at the desk of the customer not during the self serving arguments in the meeting rooms

    Pros

    Global footprint, good cash flow, solid mfg knowledge, good people on the ground floor.

    Cons

    diversity bias, lack of commodity knowledge, terrible long term compensation, herd mentality, lack of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity is more than ethnicity. Stop promoting self-promoters, they're ruining the company and lack real leadership.

    Pros

    Market Leader, strives for pest practices. The company is environmentally focused and does care about employee well being and safety. Each employee is required to take 4 safety credits during the year. Topics range from plant safety to office safety to child car seat safety to home security. They do care about your well being.

    Cons

    Corporate policy can really suck at times. If you are one a project that spans multiple divisions and one of those divisions is being sold off, you have to reapply for your job even if your time spent on that division was very minor. Outsiders with no box plant or mill supply chain experience will have a tough time convencing older IP workers that they know something about supply chain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove red tape on projects. A supply chain project only takes a few years, not a decade.
