    I have been working at NewPage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great six sigma culture that drives improvement and change as well as strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. Employee morale is positive as NewPage continues to meet sales and profit goals, receive bonus payouts, and maintain market share. NewPage has a consistent practice of promoting from within.

    Cons

    The recession made it really hard to invest in employee development for from 2009 to 2011.

    Advice to Management

    Expand college recruiting and employment development programs so that more supervisory/management positions at the mills can be filled internally.


  2. "Overall a good company to work for."

    Pros

    Close-knit organization. A real can-do attitude about everything. Works hard to communicate and do the right thing. Awesome treatment of military vets. Multiple mills provides variety of culture and landscape.

    Cons

    Short term focus causes conflicting goals with no sense for what is most important. The result is too many initiatives and not enough time to do a good job at any of them. No work-life balance. Candor is often requested but not always valued.

    Advice to Management

    Focus and deprioritize. You're burning out the good folks because you want everything at once. Temper new ideas against initiatives whose value depends on getting them completed before you take on more work.
