Pros

NewPage 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.

Cons

Senior 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 ManagementAdvice

Senior 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
