    Pros

    Steady Pay/Benefits with a big company

    Cons

    Limited advancement. Clique-style management. Union environment with no corporate or plant management support. Zero communication from HR or senior management. Large pay differences for equal jobs and performance.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the people that manage the process. Quit trying to manage every detail from which you are so far removed. Take care of employees and they'll want to work well. Get rid of wasteful managers and hire someone who knows the mill and can make a difference.

    Pros

    Free Coffee and covered parking

    Cons

    They literally call themselves "Fast and Furious" in town hall meetings, complete with inspirational quotes from the movie franchise for pre-teens. Only Michael Scott from Dunder MIfflin could have come up with a more inspiring theme. Like Dunder Mifflin they are a dinosaur of a company, looking for relevancy in a world that is changing much faster than they can.

    Advice to Management

    Try to put just a little serious thought into your strategy and culture.

    Pros

    Decent experience in the consumer goods industry.

    Cons

    Lacks leadership and motivation from management. No recognition for your hard work which will eventually beat you down. The company is setting unrealistic goals in short timelines which only leads to failure. A once good company is now being driven downwards, which from the looks of it isn't getting better due to the high turnover rate. Morale is the lowest I have ever seen at a company.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees as they are the most important asset to the company. Build development programs and have rewards to build morale within the company.
