    Excellent organization to work for, share in the profits, good salary, plenty of room for advancement, basically left alone to lead and get the job done

    Advancements may come by re-locating to another division, it's not a 9 to 5 job

    Pros

    Great Salary, Excellent focus on safety

    Cons

    Company philosophy is beginning to change, and in my opinion, for the worse.

    Advice to Management

    More autonomy out in the mill. Allow and encourage people to make decisions, right or wrong. People learn more from making a wrong decision than having all of their choices made for them. People should have the right to fail.
