Pros

Open communication, focus on employee development and a pretty agile organisation considering its size. A leader in the business the image of the company was drastically refreshed while I was there (1995-2008).

Cons

It's a declining industry sector in North America and apparently they will go under a lot of change in the near future. The rirement of the 10+ year CEO, R. Royer could creat some anxiety in middle management and could result in many departures.

Advice to Management

Keep on improving employee communications, when employees understand better the business reality, they are making better decisions, based on actual conditions and facts rather than on rumors.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are fair. Training and support is great. Overall, great company, just not the department I was in.

    Cons

    Manager and certain supervisors/team leads play favorites and was very obvious. Applying for job internally is not always acknowledged--don't even grant an interview. Hiring from within?? NOT!!! Too bad.

    Pros

    Domtar is still the best among the competitors in the present down paper market. The industry is not at its best time, for sure.

    Cons

    Projects to harmonize multiple IT systems are on hold for undetermined period of time. HR policy in terms of vacation time is very inflexible.
    Management doesn't encourage feedback if it's not in line with what they expect. They are trying too hard to please the upper level and not takingenough care of their subordinates. But shouldn't it be vise versa, since it's your employees that make you a stronger leader?

    Advice to Management

    Give a chance to your employees, don't justsay " I don't think you are ready". Try them in action, especially if they are so willing to demonstrate their abilities.
