    Pros

    You have a very large product offering with many locations to service our customers. We are owned by a very large parent company, International Paper.

    Cons

    You have to like change. Constant change. It can be a roller coaster ride with it's ups and downs.


  2. Helpful (2)

    Bureaucratic, conservative in outlook and approach, and generally poorly run.

    Pros

    The major medical benefits are probably slightly above average. The 401(k) is also probably slightly above average as the parent company (International Paper) seems to be awash in cash. Be aware however that the benefits vary depending on your position. Those in higher management and marketing positions enjoy a much healthier retirement benefit than those working more “front line” positions.

    Cons

    The organization is very bureaucratic and seems to issue policy statements and initiatives that are geared more toward employing those responsible for those statements and with more of an eye to defending future litigation than to advancing the goals of the organization. The direction of the company seems to change frequently without changing at all. It could be a function of the size of the organization and the changing nature of its core businesses but presents more as a lack of leadership and a lack of vision. Consequently employees appear less engaged and are, frankly, seldom asked to engage. It is a very top-down driven company.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is faced with a rapidly changing core, or base, business and as a result seems to be caught in a spiral of cutting to improve the bottom line (including moving service jobs overseas where – presumably – labor costs are cheaper). And when one series of cuts fails to have the desired effect it cuts some more. It is similar to the argument going on nationally – can you cut your way to prosperity or is a more prudent approach to spend and invest for future growth? It is not (and this is driven probably in no small part or maybe even exclusively by its parent’s corporate personality) an organization that encourages creativity or a sense of entrepreneurship. It does not foster any sense of teamwork or shared vision or goals. Management needs to be less top-down and more creative.
