No opinion of CEO

I worked at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I previously state Geogia Pacific take their safety to the highest level. As well as in a greviance situation there is always a fair compromise usually worked out.

Cons

Biggest concern I have for the local Plant - Edmonton Alberta, they had no problem letting the facility go on s six month strike, while management was force to run the board line/crossing the picket line.

Advice to Management

Be more consistent with knowing the ground floor workers. Remember, U hired human being with different stories to life and really try to understand: you work with what you get. Maximize this realization and the crew dynamics go up and so does work effort/attitude.

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

    Pros

    Hourly employees are easy to work with, conscientious, and very safety aware. Peer relationships are positive. High turnover provides excellent opportunity for recent college graduates to gain experience.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is generally abusive to "hands on" salaried employees. Communication is top down only - providing feedback that is perceived to be negative will be a career limiting action. Salaried personnel with key technical knowledge will be on constant call - as knowledgeable hourly employees have a contractual right to turn down call-outs. Salaried employees generally 5 to 10 years between compensation increases, resulting in very high turnover. If you are considering this company as an employer, take that into account and come in with an exit strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Quit abusing your salaried employees.
