NewPage, Big Fish in a Shrinking Pond

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Miamisburg, OH

ProsNewPage paper mills are first class. The distribution network is customer focused and responsive. Headquarter facilities, benefit package and community involvement paint a very positive image for NewPage in the Dayton area.

ConsSenior management appears to struggle with the realities of people issues. Denying people issues rather than addressing them will eventually lead to a "what happened?" day. The commodity paper market is shrinking and many doubt that it will ever return.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management should avoid the trap of listening to the loudest voice and direct their attention to meaningful results. They sometimes come from those that quietly give security to the business through consistent, accurate work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
