    GP Process Engineer Review

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for knowledge sharing within sister facilities under the GP umbrella. Corporate training programs are interesting but are intermittent throughout your first two years. Easy interviewing process if you understand and implement their Market Based Management verbage.

    Cons

    Hard to get capital projects approved since their approval process goes through numerous levels of management, up to corporate level. Might start off with a decent salary but then raises are hard to come by for salaried employees. Typically have to work above and beyond to show you have created lots of "value" to the company. They hire based on character and expect that you can teach someone to be a good engineer, but in my opinion you need both. Soft skills will get you far in this company. It is also difficult to challenge things.

    Advice to Management

    Faster capital project approvals. Better allocation of internal resources.

    Pros

    Great place to get started and get involved in projects out of school. Culture varies team to team - some are great, others have not yet embraced the MBM culture.

    Cons

    The value of fulfillment is not understood by this company - either monetarily or otherwise.

    Pros

    Stable job market with interest in employing and retaining new talent.

    Cons

    No clear career path. Sometimes fall between the cracks in terms of training and involvement due to heavy work load on the more seasoned employees.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss with new hires where you think they belong and where they ultimately would like to be early on after hiring before they feel like they get lost in the shuffle.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Georgia Pacific has undergone many chances over the past several years. While the business model is solid it is not holistically applied.

    Cons

    The business model is treated as a veneer. A lot of good people are leaving the company.

    Pros

    Wide range of jobs, friendly and supportive co-workers.

    Cons

    Getting a raise is almost impossible because you have to prove that you have added value. It's not possible for everyone to do so therefore, years past by without getting one as several employees have not received one in over 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Consider at least offering a cost of living increase. Also consider giving increase based on performance on a percentage basis.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who are very professional. The workplace environment is very good. There is a high focus on MBM. The pay is good.

    Cons

    The locations of the facilities are not ideal places to live. they are in rural areas that do not offer many housing and school options for a family. the pay is lower than other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus more on the growth of their employees. Some people are overworked and do not receive the incentives they should for their efforts.
