I have been working at NewPage full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The employees are great to work with and generally speaking a nice place to work.

Cons

Leadership is very poor, focused mostly on themselves and their long-time buddies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decision for the good of the company and not your own pockets.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great to work with. SAP is the ERP and I enjoyed working on it.

    Cons

    Just got out of bankruptcy and are laying off 2 to 3 employees a week at the corporate headquarters. Expenses have been minimized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with the plans for the company and its employees.

    I have been working at NewPage full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In a very low cost of living area, NewPage offers employees at the Luke mill some of the best wages per hour for their hourly employees.

    Cons

    The biggest issue NewPage faces is the current status of the paper industry. Constant cutbacks in spending and employment have plagued the mill for several years. Very little of the money generated is reinvested back into the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on making money. Don't be afraid to admit you don't know or understand something and allow the people who have worked the job for 30 years do it.
