    Pros

    Your co workers is about it

    Cons

    Disappointed in senior leadership. No real leadership experience and it was obvious. Most of the profits are directed to them in rich incentive schemes found at the most profitable companies in the world. This is not that.

    I have been working at Glatfelter full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Can't think really of one

    Cons

    Its all about profit - period Problems are not even discussed - wording is always positive to cover problems Reporting is tuned to look always good Facilities and production environment is way behind in maintenance Selfish management and way to much managers and not enough workers to get things done HR departments live still in stone age Unsuccessful global initiatives are hidden behind top management... sponsorship People management is theoretical and lived by slogans but no actions behind Some "top managers" have not seen a paper mill from inside and have no clue about the business - but all of them make decisions - how long does that work until the company is finally wrecked? Policies and hiring compliance are not ruling for everybody

    Advice to Management

    Reduce bureaucracy, reduce management positions and install people with the right knowledge which get things done instead talk the talk. Allow to point out problems instead of discussing around the issues and topics until they're solved by time. Put the people in the middle - not the profit and stop hiding behind slogans and the holy compass!

    Advice to Management

    This is a 24 hour operation. I had 1 weekend off a month for 23 years before getting a 5 day a week day job the last 2 years. Hard work and did not get to raise my child which is sad. A single parent does what she has to do. Family time suffers - pay is outstanding for that community.
