    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company, great management principles that discourage micromanagement and encourage continuous improvement and innovation. Private company, long term thinking is strongly supported, not overly concerned about quarterly returns.

    Cons

    Large corporation which leads to a lot of red tape and roadblocks which can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the employees who have earned it. Do not forget to grant more decision rights to those who deserve it. Don't be scared to get rid of C talent.
