    I have been working at International Paper full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get paid and the benefits sometimes work

    Cons

    Salary management treats hourly employees like indentured servants. Managers who do not show up for work counsel hourly employees for attendance. Security cameras and various company policies are only used against select personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Replace all of management immediately

    Pros

    They don't have very high expectations of anyone. Good place for people with no ambition.

    Cons

    They don't like people who think for themselves. They want people who will do what they're told and that's all. It's almost as if they encourage people to do an average job. No place for anyone wanting a career. It's a job.

    Advice to Management

    Start encouraging people to achieve and allow upward mobility. Stop micro managing.
