I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (Less than a year)

Good pay. The work conditions vary throughout the mill, but most areas are pretty good. Maintenance is treated pretty well.

Cons

The culture and attitude of the workers is a little toxic. A lot of complaining and undercutting.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company has been good to me, but pay and benefits are marginal and progressive management is lacking

    Cons

    Getting to big, centralization has led to large amounts of bureacy and little decision rights by the profit centers. Corporate office is becoming to large. GP doesn't practice core values of parent company (MBM "Market Based Management"). Concept is great and wants to be practiced by many though it is viewed by labor pool to be all talk by management and not truely practiced by corporate. Corporate wishes to only follow portions of MBM that are beneficial to them and not MBM as a whole.
