    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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

    The pay is good and benefits is mediocre

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism and HR fire the ppl they want and keep the ppl they like. Cant grow with the company if they see you good at something that keep you there and wont promote you. Only the fav gets promoted. Work 6 days a week for the last few months and sometimes no day off.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to everyone!

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at International Paper

    Pros

    A lot of OT, some good people, not a really tough climate, help for tasks decent training in some areas

    Cons

    No PTO and demerits for even sick non-pd time, clicky by shifts, forced OT with very little notice, can be targeted for blame and bad communication in dept

    Advice to Management

    Communication is needed across shifts and supervisors need to be more communicative, as well as taking responsibility for their own mistakes.
