    I worked at Mac Papers full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People there were all very nice, easy to work with, and willing to assist. Great organization for an older worker to feel right at home.

    Cons

    Many long time employees, not wanting any change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moderinize a little bit, even if a little at a time.

    Pros

    CEO and Senior upper management are down to earth and pleasant to be around. Company has solid history and pay is decent. Most upper management (on third floor) are great to work with and are very cordial. Dealing with branches was almost always a pleasant experience.

    Cons

    CEO, Sutton, is out of touch with the employees. Most employees, unfortunately, have been unhappy in the last 1-2 years and most are looking for a way out. Some of these employees have been with the company 10+ years. The morale in certain departments is at an all time low. There are certain managers that treat employees with little dignity and as if they are well beneath them. There is no where to air grievances outside of going straight to the top, which is highly frowned upon, as there is no department that will listen to non-management employees . The choice for employees if to stick it out and put up with being talked down to or get out. Quarterly Bonuses are low when compared to the work flow and annual bonuses of Upper Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Sutton, please get in touch with your employees. Once upon a time you did anonymous surveys, I would highly suggest you do that again. You are one of the kindest men I've ever met, I know you would be hurt if you only knew how your employees felt about their managers. There is truly no where to go to talk about problems with supervisors because of the favoritism in certain departments. Notice the employees that work hard to keep the company running through all the acquisitions, notice them through their bonuses, like you did in years past. Upper management gets bonuses enough to buy houses and cars, but the real work is done by the non-management employees.

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the job you do. Some people are cool but not in management. Hard to find a lot of positive things to say honestly.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs wild here. Hardly rotate shifts for people who deserve it. When you address problems with supervisors and you are a newer employee they are very quick to dismiss you. Most managers will treat the people they don't like worse than dirt and get away with it. Unless you are in the cool crowd you are a outsider and any ideas or solutions are thrown away. I do not recommend working here. Trying to find the fastest way out.

    Pros

    A good group of people (with the exception of a few bad apples). A lot of flexibility for doctors appts, etc

    Cons

    Salary scale is horrible. That company is making money hand over fist and they pay their employees very little. Quarterly bonuses, if that's what you want to call them. Any problems with direct supervision/mgmt are not addressed by higher ups. A lot of blatant favoritism and rules are on individual basis, not across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Handle the problems for you non-management employees when they are presented to you. Increase your pay scale considerably.

    Pros

    Mac Papers is family owned and operated and they treat their employees as if they were family. Mac Papers is continuing to grow. They are diversifying and I can tell that they are ensuring the longevity of their company for their employess and for the next generation of owners.

    Cons

    It is a distribution company so the locations are convenient to major highways, not to restaurants or shopping centers...

    Pros

    Mac Papers is a forward thinking company, that was built on a solid foundation. It has made several key acquisitions over the past 10 years, and continues to show that its committed to growth. Each employee is provided with ample opportunity to succeed, and hard work does not go unnoticed.

    Mac Papers is a family owned business, so decisions and change can be made quickly. Mac Papers has a strong set of core values, and it's reflected in the leadership. At Mac Papers, you're a name, not a number, and it honestly feels like a family... we all look out for each other. Mac Papers is extremely loyal to all of its employees.

    The devotion to growth, shown by the management at Mac Papers, is a key element to its success. In a changing world, Mac Papers continues to evolve with the times. It will not settle for being second best.

    Cons

    The pros far outweigh the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to your staff.

    Pros

    Mac Papers truly cares about its employees. With the economy the way it is, times are tough and many companies are looking to cut back cost. Mac Papers did the opposite and gave back to the employees in appreciation for their hard work. Its great to work for a company who cares and genuinely respects their employees!

    Cons

    Turnover is rare because everyone loves working for Mac Papers so advancing in the company may be tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening and respecting your employees because that goes a long way!

    Pros

    From day one, it was apparent people want to be at Mac. Tenure is long, environment is welcoming, and the leadership is available. While much is still expected, I have never worked for a company who encouraged me to keep my family as my priority.

    Cons

    With such low turnover, change in internal positions are not frequent. Patience and letting your hard work speak for itself is a lesson to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While everyone does work hard, help to keep the challenge in front of us. Hold us more accountable of how we can go beyond what we can become comfortable doing.

    Mac Papers has a very friendly staff and everyone works together as a team to help each other out.

    They only let me work 8 hours a day.

    Continue to listen to your sales force because the sales force is the voice of Mac Papers customers.
