    I have been working at MeadWestvaco

    Pros

    Reasonably well paid, some job security.

    Cons

    Jan Willem De Munk has runited the company, squeezing cost at the expense of the employees moral and motivation. He has no focus or strategy and is slowly reducing the company to nothing. No progression for staff and DeMunk is considered a micro manager and control freak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of De Munk and in 12 months, green shoots would grow again. Start to listen to staff and give people a chance, enpower and reward and the company could grow

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Heathcare, pension, 401k matching. People are professional.

    Cons

    very large, hard to be agent of any change.
    no xmas bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities to succeed for employees. Also need to centralize customer service.
    it is time to deunionize... Salary employee zero guarantee to get a raise, union employees get increases annually.

    Approves of CEO
