I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 8 years)
Amazing company business philosophy. Market-Based Management and the company's commitment to excellence provides a maximum growth and development opportunity.
People are great, willing to work with you, help you and challenge your thought processes and ideas to foster the best knowledge and the greatest return from a personal perspective in a fulfilling environment, and also provide business growth that is constantly surpassing its last projections.
Silos exist between business groups, and often duplication of efforts are an unfortunate consequence.
Advice to Management
Keep moving Market-Based Management and the Five Dimensions deeper into the organization and foster development and continuous improvement from a business and personal level that consistently challenges and provides fulfillment in new and creative ways to the business as well as the employees.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia-Pacific (Atlanta, GA).
There were 5 individual interviews with different people in the company. They each asked a series of SBO type questions. There were some technical questions sprinkled in here and there. The interviews were back to back over the course of a few hours.
