    I have been working at Smurfit Kappa

    Pros

    Salaries are above average and benefits are so good, I feel freat with this compensation. But satidfaction is not only money.

    Cons

    Ledership is old fashioned, not a saving costs culture, bad comunication inside the organization, Mexican Operations are not going well because of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To change the way they do management, look outside the company and learn from success stories, For top management it would be useful to come to Mexico and analize the way things are being done regarding leadership, we have managers that do not have essential knowledge of being a good actual manager :(
