    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing company business philosophy. Market-Based Management and the company's commitment to excellence provides a maximum growth and development opportunity.

    People are great, willing to work with you, help you and challenge your thought processes and ideas to foster the best knowledge and the greatest return from a personal perspective in a fulfilling environment, and also provide business growth that is constantly surpassing its last projections.

    Cons

    Silos exist between business groups, and often duplication of efforts are an unfortunate consequence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving Market-Based Management and the Five Dimensions deeper into the organization and foster development and continuous improvement from a business and personal level that consistently challenges and provides fulfillment in new and creative ways to the business as well as the employees.

    Pros

    It’s a huge company, so there is tons of opportunities as long as you work hard.
    Benefits are decent, but are all high deductible plans.
    Atmosphere is good. Mostly everyone is friendly and respects one another.
    Great framework, MBM Guiding Principles.

    Cons

    So far, there have not been any cons. They really have an open door policy. I have been had conversations with my boss’s boss.

    Advice to Management

    Practice and preach more of the MBM guidelines.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is better entry level than any other place 75k for Engineers right out of college and you can ask for 80k-85k if you Coop there.

    Cons

    Typical manufacturing bs you have to deal with. Upper management needs to make changes or you will continue to see young engineers come for the salary and bonus and leave after a year. ( If you stay a year you dont have to pay back your signing bonus )
