Pros

The mills have very good people who work hard to do the right thing. Very strong technical capabilities in the field.

Cons

Senior leadership has very strong opinions on what it takes to run the business and squashes dissenting view-points. Not the open environment that they profess. You'll get whacked for speaking truth to power.

Advice to Management

Stop managing by lists. Take the ISO-9000 approach and identify what's important, what processes deliver these results, and focus on the people and requirement of the processes. Stop trying to manage activities from headquarters.

    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 Management

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