    I worked at International Paper full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    IP pays very well. competitive benefits. They'll give you plenty to do.

    Cons

    Extremely demanding hours. senior execs are ULTRA conservative and reactive. All avenues for growth are disappearing and they're back to perennial 'cost cut' mode. The time you work for them or results you achieved, may mean very little if you ever got on the wrong side of one of their SVPs.

    Pros

    Pays well, good people, lots of opportunities.

    Work life balance is basically non-existent. Long hours without consideration for employee well being. On call 24/7 365 for the smallest of issues that should be resolved at operator or foreman level.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Manager in Memphis, TN

    I worked at International Paper full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to move around. Geographically and job function.

    Cons

    Very bad benefits. Very old fashioned mindset. For example, most large companies offer paternity leave... you'd get laughed at for asking for paternity leave at IP. They are unwilling to consider any type of flexible work arrangement at all. In general I don't think people are treated well at IP. Their isnt much competition for top tier talent in Memphis so IP does the bare minimum. I

    I have been working at International Paper full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Started innovation which is slowly making headway. Started Diversity and Inclusion - Good Pay for the job

    Cons

    Bad benefits Company cares more about Core employees than long term employees Promotions to senior level - not going to happen. The only way this will happen is if you are on a managed move list or have a mentor in director or above level (or you are Core). Promotion into senior manager roles is not based on experience and performance.
