    Pros

    - Compensation and Benefits are great
    - Managers who care not only about your work but about your family too
    - Company culture based strongly around safety and doing the right thing
    - Fun and challenging work that keeps me engaged everyday

    Cons

    - Processes and getting things approved can be tedious with such a large company
    - Third-party vendors that we use are not great and are difficult to manage
    - Work/life balance can be challenging sometimes, but the company is actively working to address this issue

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing pretty well right now to address some of the cons. The big thing is going to be follow-through – not just making the promises but keeping them.

    Pros

    A lot of room for growth, great team to work with. I ran into very few people that I didn't enjoy working with while working there.

    Cons

    It's rough for work-life balance, especially when working at the mills. There is always something going on and it is rough trying to keep the balance.
