    I have been working at International Paper full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, Only Pay is a pro they say i have to write 20 words minimum .. well the pay is only decent part of this job

    Cons

    Everything about the job i don't like .. the people, the management, the training !!!!! completely out of order. But if you dont mind it ( which i don't i been working there for a year or so ) its decent money. Thats the only reason why im still here.

    Advice to Management

    ease up on the supervisors so they can ease up on the workers.

    Pros

    There is always work, I'm in the army so the bosses understand when I go to drill and don't complain about it

    Cons

    Atmosphere sucks, everyone seems to have a bad mood always because they work weekends and it's mandatory. You see the same faces everyday no matter what and you can't move up because it is unionized. Seniority always wins even if your the best worker there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees because they are the ones working with the same routines and know the flaws on the machines.

    Pros

    Safety culture is very strong and company genuinely cares about employee well being.
    The company is currently rolling out improved benefits in tuition reimbursement and retirement savings

    Cons

    Company is very corporate- centric. You are treated and developed better if you are willing to move to the headquarters.
    The company is a little too lean. People are often over-worked. This is probably the case at many large companies.

    Get systems in place before limiting headcount.
