    Pros

    Our CEO is not just your average CEO that speaks great things about our organization, but truly believes in all messages he delivers. Our management teams identify those employees who are working hard and are always wanting to ensure their employees success! The HR team is always available to answer any questions and if are not able to address the questions, are able to direct you in the right direction to find out answers! Great organization to work for!

    Cons

    Nothing really that I can say!

    Advice to Management

    You are doing an excellent job!

    Pros

    Excellent customer service and order management teams, dedicated to long term customer partnerships. Very strong leadership team, driving operational excellence and increased productivity with a focus on safety and the environment. Lots of opportunity to be innovative - and in fact rewarded for innovation and creativity. Not afraid to evolve - change is a positive experience, always opportunities to get involved in making improvements.

    Cons

    Nothing major that I can think of, other than lack of cafes, restaurants in the Richmond HQ area

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial, innovative, great people without big egos who care about improving, sustainability leader, flat hierarchy, lots of learning opportunities at a growing company.

    Recent doubling in size means some growth pains (but also some opportunities). Challenging sector and market turbulence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on listening to experienced employees, including the ones with the "soft" skills.

    Pros

    Catalyst is a progressive company that strikes a solid balance between managing the daily operations and exploring new opportunities to ensure the success of our business over the long-term.

    Cons

    The markets Catalyst currently serves are very challenging due to the declining demand for our products. Change is necessary for the business to survive. This has created an environment that is very dynamic. For folks seeking stability in their day-to-day activities, find another option.

    Advice to Management

    You have the opportunity to be part of building a future for your community, spread the word!

    Pros

    Catalyst fully supports employee development and career growth and provides many methods and opportunities to challenge us in our future.

    Pros

    Competitive compensation plan and nice work environment.
    Used to be a good place to work with many good people around.

    Cons

    No future for people that still have many years left, it is kind of normal for companies in paper industry.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much to say really...I guess you have tried everything you could, maybe it is time to let it go.
