    Current Employee - Human Resources

    I have been working at NewPage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great six sigma culture that drives improvement and change as well as strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. Employee morale is positive as NewPage continues to meet sales and profit goals, receive bonus payouts, and maintain market share. NewPage has a consistent practice of promoting from within.

    Cons

    The recession made it really hard to invest in employee development for from 2009 to 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand college recruiting and employment development programs so that more supervisory/management positions at the mills can be filled internally.

    Current Employee - General Manager At A Manufacturing Site

    I have been working at NewPage

    Pros

    Some sites offer outstanding career development opportunities.
    Some sites have excellent management teams.
    Excellent opportunity to work across departmental boundaries.

    Cons

    The company filed bankruptcy in September 2011.
    In the absence of significant change at the senior management level, this corporation will continue to wither and die. Very poor decisions have been made regarding capital investment and market share vs. net selling price.
    Compensation increases and retirement benefits (of any sort) are non-existent.
    No honest information is disseminated to the sites from senior management. "Town Hall Meetings" at the manufacturing sites typically draw less than 5% of the workforce since none of the information shared is honest or believable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership doesn't take advice.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
