    Pros

    This company is a great company to work for. The take care of their employees and really care about them.

    Cons

    The schedule is horrible. The schedule is 4 days on day shift 6 a.m.- 6 p.m. Then you have 4 days off then you come back in and work 4 nights 6 p.m.- 6 a.m. Your body can never adjust to a certain shift so you eventually feel tired all of the time

    I have been working at Louisiana-Pacific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for large corporations and small startups. LP is very intentional about its culture and how people are treated. For being publically traded, there is a small feel to it. Employees don't get slammed with any board member dissatisfaction (is there any?) as opposed to other corporations where shareholder angst was taken out on employees. The executive staff is transparent. If you need 30 minutes with a c-level or vp, it's relatively easy to get. Although it doesn't pander to millennials like some companies with youthful ancillary benefits (espresso machines, whatever young people like), they focus on benefits that matter which is very refreshing. Lots of guidance in how to grow in the company. Status quo is unacceptable.

    Cons

    Not really a con. The commute is getting a little tough from outside Davidson county. Under new mayoral governance, corporations will be getting tax incentives to program carpool/transit programs for employees looking to get away from traditional commuting. I hope that LP can embrace some work from home time as well as commuting programs that can alleviate the stress of the long drive in and out of downtown.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Executives, keep up the accessibility. It defines the company in several ways.

    Pros

    Casual environment that focuses on solid core values like teamwork, compliance, respect and community. People have fun at work...laugh and carry on, yet you are accountable to perform at a high level. Pay is good, benefits are good. Launched innovation strategy which is exciting. Lots of opportunities to grow your career even outside of your specialty.

    Cons

    Downtown Nashville office location...traffic and parking a negative. But the company culture makes up for that. Cyclical business tied to housing market, but hopefully the growth and innovation strategy will minimize that impact going forward.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving for excellence, keep valuing and recognizing exceptional performance and building a culture of accountability.
