Be wary, especially if interviewing for PM12

Process Engineer (Former Employee)
Chillicothe, OH

I worked at Glatfelter full-time for less than a year

ProsSome smart people and good vendors; most employees believe and make sure the mill has a future

ConsYou may be forced to work in Chilpaco and you won't ever receive a job description or list of duties. All the PM managers and area supervisors hate your boss and therefor hate you.

Advice to Senior ManagementTime to clean house! Let the people who care have enough authority to do their job. Fire the dead weight that is driving off all your talent. People don't leave bad work or bad places, they leave bad management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Average company - in a dying industry

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Spring Grove, PA

I worked at Glatfelter full-time for more than 8 years

ProsManufacturing processes continue to get more efficient each year. Production leadership has a lot of smart people.

ConsE-books (like Kindle) are reducing the demand for book paper.

Firings are a common occurrence among the office people. Quite often, though, they cut a good employee while keeping poor ones on the job. Better keep your resume up to date. And never critique the pet projects of upper management.

Managers also seem to be under great stress.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your mid-level managers. Put more scrutiny into proposed Continuous Improvement projects.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A good place to work, but the union and some of the worker's there will destroy this historic company. Very sad to see.
