I worked at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

IT is a dynamic organization filled with people who have a lot of experience. People are progressive and want to build systems and processes that are best practice if not cutting edge

Cons

This is an organization where people tend to stay for many years, so mobility at the senior levels can be somewhat limited.

Advice to Management

Provide people more lateral opportunities for upward growth eventually.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great hourly pay. Recession proof consumer products. Extreme focus on safety. Additional performance pay for reaching key goals.

    Cons

    Accepting change related to strong focus on the bottom line. After over 20 years of employment with this company it was purchased and became privately owned. The owners drive the company on a set of principles called Market based management(MBM). It was difficult at first adjusting from being a human to being a commodity. But reality is in this system what you contribute is what you are worth to them. They reward innovation, reliability, safety, adding value, etc. Don't plan on working here and doing enough to just skate by. You won't last long.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow consider the humanity of those that work hard to make this company successful. Right now it is all about the bottom line. Time off flexibility, etc. continues to erode as policies evolve. We are not machines, we have emotions and families.
