      Pros

      Plenty of learning opportunities, large company that has many resources and support staff so you're never on your own dealing with problems, reasonably competitive salary, the company works well across sites so there is ample opportunity for growth and upward or lateral movements, excellent college graduate orientation program

      Cons

      Old company comes with outdated ideology. Expect long work hours with poor work life balance.

      Former Intern, less than 1 year

      Great work, great pay, great people

      Sep 9, 2020 - Intern - Hourly 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -excellent pay -company culture that cares about workers -safety is high priority -highly professional environment - people are friendly but do not cross boundaries -relatively diverse management for manufacturing environment -great work life balance for most managers and interns alike -typically reasonable expectations and friendly team of engineers/coworkers

      Cons

      -the location I worked at was in a very rural area (pro and a con really) so it could be far from things to do -environment can be stressful at times (nothing out of the ordinary) -safety still needs improvement, so there's a good reason why it's so high priority -HR team at this mill has a very untrustworthy and retaliatory reputation. Management and general population at the mill are pretty great though.
