    I worked at SCA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good products, Good employees that care.

    Cons

    Management does not have a plan of execution. Poor direction and management always changing. The constant changes leave the remainder of the company feeling unengaged. Many of the management is not well trained and seems unwilling to listen to experienced people. The fate of the company is decided by very few and those people do not have all the information they need to make the decision. The company has been struggling to find the right course of correction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company culture is not put into practice by management. The company values that are publicized are good and many employees strive to live up to them, however they are not rewarded. Management needs to listen and honestly engage their employees.

    I worked at SCA full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good brands, global recognition. Lots of untapped opportunity.

    Cons

    Brands are getting stale, with little to no marketing progress. What can you do in the U.S. with toilet paper and paper towel? Very un-sexy. Midwest operations need to be replaced with a more energetic, foward-thinking global group. Tend to develop the wrong employees, lots of attrition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house in the North America; they're getting too comfortable.

    I have been working at SCA

    Pros

    Manufacturing company of paper products. Great place to learn the industry and also be involved in all aspects of the finance process. As as assistant controller you are given many responsibilities and feel you are contributing to the company

    Cons

    Limited mobility at the manufacturing sites in terms of finance mobility. However there are many opportunities if you are willing to relocate to other areas to advance your career.
