    I worked at Neenah Paper full-time

    Pros

    Relatively small at about $1B in sales. Some well known brands and customers.

    Cons

    Old school manufacturing mentality. Declining markets and weak product development.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden the corporate structure...bring in employees from different, non-traditional manufacturers. Also, they need to restructure "product verticals" to be more focused marketing, manufacturing and distribution channels.

    Pros

    Good Pay due to union negotiations.

    Cons

    Terrible Benefits. Inconsiderate Scheduling. 12 hour shifts 6-7 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to schedule business more efficiently so the workers do not have to set up cots in the locker rooms.

    I worked at Neenah Paper full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and good benefits (health/life insurance, 401k, vacation, sick time, etc).

    Cons

    Under-compensated for work, employees are over-worked and had to stay for overtime close to everyday. Duties and responsibilities not evenly and properly assigned, resulting to one employee doing 5 person's job. Employees do not feel valued or appreciated, bad culture and toxic environment. Employee morale extremely low, HR oblivious thinking that things are getting better, yet employees are leaving left and right.

    Advice to Management

    When employees identified a problem, try to find a solution rather than 'pushing back.' Do not deny that there are actually problems going on with the work process and give false reports to your 'boss' that everything is going very well.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for professional growth, a leadership team who is incredibly supportive, a solid startagy for growth in a declining industry.

    Cons

    Industry challenges (not Neenah's fault), but leadership has a strategy for overcoming (and it's working).

    Advice to Management

    None. They're doing a great job leading Neenah and rewarding shareholders.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. 401k, long term and short term disability.

    Cons

    Mandatory 6 days a week. Long time employees don't always treat newer people with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good, but too many people that have been there for 25 plus years are very mean to newer employees.

    I worked at Neenah Paper full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits, lots of opportunity for overtime

    Cons

    You can't trust anyone, lots of "clicks", shady politics going on in the salaried positions, VERY poor training, people are fired with no explanation, it is a difficult place for women to work because of certain men

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe everything you hear about new hires at union meetings - they aren't there to defend themselves...
    FIX your training program! It is TERRIBLE! Some people are "training" others that aren't even fully trained themselves! There is no structure or set plans in training. It is pitiful.

    Pros

    Strong Financial performance, great vision, open communication of desired strategy, invests in employees, great benefits

    Cons

    Corporate HQ is in Alpharetta GA, so limited visibility to leadership team, tend to load up the high performers with heavy workload, tend to look for outside talent in GA vs. promote from Fox Valley area

    Advice to Management

    Could utilize spot reward program for peak performers more often, clips coming out of the sales meeting were great, potential to add a monthly video clip to the intranet
