Reality does not agree with all of the pretty mission statements on the walls

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Wisconsin Rapids, WI

I worked at NewPage

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

ConsSenior 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 Senior ManagementStop 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
