    I worked at NewPage full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people, the people, the people. There are folks that have worked here from the Mead, Westvaco and Consolidated days and that passion runs deep.

    Cons

    The largest player in an enormous "dying" industry. Leadership was typically a puppet for their private equity owners.

    Those that have stayed are pretty talented employees.

    Poor industry. No innovation. Bankrupt. Downsizing to keep lights on.

    Innovate to stay a float.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Pay is competitive. Benefits are good, but progressively becoming less valuable. Very talented folks around you. Training budget is very limited.

    Cons

    No room for advancement, raises are nonexistent. Facilities are not maintained and there is very little capital available to improve production.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your infrastructure. It's declining rapidly due to lack of maintenance and capital investment.

    I have been working at NewPage part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with a strong work/family balance. Organization generally does what is best for their employees. Benefits and compensation are probably slightly above average.

    Operations are some of the best in the US and provide quality product that is recognized throughout North America.

    Cons

    Being acquired by a competitor who has no idea what they are getting into. Very little faith in the new management, that they will have what it takes to run the company successfully.

    Pros

    Honest, hard-working leaders who want the business to succeed. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) program provides development opportunities for some of the organization.

    Always struggling financially thus not much investment in development for the masses. (LSS is the exception). Difficult to keep up morale with frequent downsizing.
