    I worked at MeadWestvaco

    Pros

    Decent salary and vacaton benefits.

    Cons

    Managers don't manage people anymore, only manage tasks; you essentially do your own review; too many administrative duties assigned to the non-management employees taking away from problem solving time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics; have managers manage people instead of tasks; reduce administrative tasks.
