Pros

Employees are long-tenured, know their jobs and customers well and treat others with respect. People are always willing to listen to others' ideas and implement win-win solutions. Management expects people to give something like time to the company when required but they give that time back when employees need it. A newer generation of management has been coming up and they are more approachable than past management. Box plant management is friendly and is concerned about relationship building.

Cons

Conservatve approach to acquiring others. Would like to see more investment in more geographical areas in order to grow the footprint. A lot of mill focus, i.e., cost side. Would like to see more revenue opportunities. Prima-donnas are tolerated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would recommend management get out from behind barriers more and mingle/talk with employees. That is beginning to happen now. Would like to see more of that. Cool it on the nepotism. Gives the appearance that in order to be successful you need to have the right last name.

    Pros

    Friendly people, not a lot of office politics, hands-on environment. Everyone is fairly accessible and helpful. Managers are understanding and employees are always willing to help and teach.

    Cons

    Manufacturing comes with a lot of drawbacks, such as long hours when a piece of equipment is down, or high stress due to contractor failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The salaried employees should get more benefits, as during the long shut downs they do not get adequately compensated for 110 hour work weeks.
