    Pros

    I've worked at Mac Papers for 8 years and don't ever plan to leave. The company looked out after me and my job during the recession and made it's people a priority. They are fair, respectful, hard working and it's a fun group.

    Cons

    The paper industry is in a decline, so business is hard to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on innovation.

    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 Management

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

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    I absolutely love working at Mac Papers. It's a medium-sized, family-owned company that treats its employees with respect, honesty, loyalty and genuine care. Mac Papers provides an opportunity for me to put previous work experience to good use and learn from other talented people who work here. In my role, I am allowed to be entrepreneurial, innovative and make a noticeable contribution. Leadership is firm but fair and my manager is encouraging and educational. Compensation is competitive and incentive-based in many cases, which makes us work harder to make this company even better. Incredible work/life balance.

    Most of all, this is an ethics-based company and leadership makes decisions (tough as they may be) every day on strong values and moral conviction. I feel good coming to work every day because of this.

    Cons

    Downsides of working at Mac Papers are harder to come by. Sometimes the company is so loyal to its longstanding employees, and in turn it gives some people the comfort to remain at status-quo. I think increased accountability at various levels could push the company forward at an even faster rate.

    Advice to Management

    Hold us more accountable for the work we do. You do a great job of giving us room to succeed without micro-management, but some people will do a better job with a bit more close-knit accountability.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
