    Pros

    Great people, just bad timing. Great educational experience, definitely a career potential company. However, they are relatively small company that needs to grow more and choice what they want to lead in. Find their niche, they are currently diverse with no path leading them to the future.

    Cons

    They put more faith in the tissue industry when paperboard is making more money. Great people, just bad timing. Great educational experience, definitely a career potential company. However, they are relatively small company that needs to grow more and choice what they want to lead in. Find their niche, they are currently diverse with no path leading them to the future.

    Pros

    New clean facility and seem that show signs of wanting to grow with the announcement of a new machine.

    Cons

    Management is insincere, fake and creepy.
    Don't seem to have a plan. Everything looks like it happens by the seat of the pants.
    Hire people because they have a degree, not because they are competent.

    Advice to Management

    Invent in robots if you don't want workers that think.
