    I have been working at Finch Paper full-time

    Pros

    Open and casual environment. Salary and benefits are good for the area.

    Cons

    Poor management, very scattered, and lacks leadership. No upward movement due to the strength of the "good 'ol boys". Hires are hastily made based on degrees without vetting candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting out fires, get ahead of issues, and be proactive.

    I worked at Finch Paper full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay you.
    There is a bathroom.
    You can milk them for overtime.

    Cons

    The culture of the company is toxic.
    The people that have worked there more than a few years are miserable.
    You are always replaceable.
    Politics and playing ball with the right people is more important than your work.

    Advice to Management

    Please retire and let decent people run the company.

    Pros

    Been a good place to work for many generations.

    Taken over by holding company. Now all is going downhill fast. Profits made by taking form and eliminating employees and jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to focus on creating more market share. Not starving and berating the people that keep things running.

    Pros

    Company car, laptop, expense account, marketing support. All things necessary to attain targets.

    Cons

    Culture of good old boys. If you were willing to bend the laws applicable to the industry to get an order, you got to stay. Heck. You got promoted. If not, you got the boot.

    I worked at Finch Paper full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close to home, great benefits, I have seen a lot of growth in 37 years at Finch, it was Finch Pruyn INC, the new name is Finch Paper it is also improving operations

    Cons

    The New management seems to want to totally rebuild the existing management, about 80% were brought up through the work forces, the new management seems to be removing existing knowledgeable personel with college degree people, this is not proving to be the right thing for the existing employees, it is pretty much by the book not realistically, there does not seem to be any common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Use experienced employees instead of COLLEGE DEGREE with "no common sense.
