    I have been working at NewPage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great six sigma culture that drives improvement and change as well as strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. Employee morale is positive as NewPage continues to meet sales and profit goals, receive bonus payouts, and maintain market share. NewPage has a consistent practice of promoting from within.

    Cons

    The recession made it really hard to invest in employee development for from 2009 to 2011.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand college recruiting and employment development programs so that more supervisory/management positions at the mills can be filled internally.

    Pros

    Close-knit organization. A real can-do attitude about everything. Works hard to communicate and do the right thing. Awesome treatment of military vets. Multiple mills provides variety of culture and landscape.

    Cons

    Short term focus causes conflicting goals with no sense for what is most important. The result is too many initiatives and not enough time to do a good job at any of them. No work-life balance. Candor is often requested but not always valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus and deprioritize. You're burning out the good folks because you want everything at once. Temper new ideas against initiatives whose value depends on getting them completed before you take on more work.

    I have been working at NewPage part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with a strong work/family balance. Organization generally does what is best for their employees. Benefits and compensation are probably slightly above average.

    Operations are some of the best in the US and provide quality product that is recognized throughout North America.

    Cons

    Being acquired by a competitor who has no idea what they are getting into. Very little faith in the new management, that they will have what it takes to run the company successfully.
