They emphisis the use of the "Golden Rule" until it's time to actually use it, then they go around it.

I worked at PCA full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay, great benefits, safety is #1 and they mean it, bonus 2 weeks before Christmas is a huge plus

Cons

No room to move up in company, disiplinary actions are usually slaps on the wrist, don't regularly drug test employees who work on heavy machinery

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees like employees, not your friend. You can be friends with them outside of work.

    Pros

    Decent pay, Vacation, and personal time off.

    Cons

    Poor 401k plan, pay freeze, some managment unfairly balance work expectations between favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    401k plan needs alot of improvment (ie. 6% maching for all employees salaried and hourly). Supervisors need to work for a common goal professionally. Higher managment needs to have more of a personal role in plant floor operations on all shifts to better recognize which employees carry good work ethic and the company. Make your own conclusions about employees instead of relying on supervisors. Hard work and dedication should be premise for advancement and not the amount of common intrests and unproductive conversion you hold with your superior.

  2.  

    PCA is an employer that values thoughtful work and provides opportunities for those willing to accept responsibility.

    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.
