    "Badly Managed Box Plants"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The mill is managed fairly well.

    Cons

    In my opinion, the box plants are completely mismanaged; originating from top management were there is a culture of disrespect for both employees and customers. An investment company owns Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging and there is little or no emphasis on serving customers. Moral is very low due to the heavy-handed approach of regional management. Turn-over is very high. I would strongly advise against working at any of the box plants, unless your desperate for short term work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire regional managers that know how to motivate sales/support teams.

    Pros

    Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging has great employee benefits. They give comp time when necessary. The work environment encourages personal growth.

    Cons

    The relocation benefits were very low. The chances for advancement and pay raises are slow and in very small increments.

    Advice to Management

    Look around at other paper companies and match their relocation packages and pay. This would help you attract good employees and retain them.
