    Pros

    Great Company, very flexible and great work-life balance. Mill employees from Europe were friendly and helpful.

    Pros

    Decent pay with flexible hours. Good people to work with. Great place to work if you like the outdoors and wood/forest products industry.

    Cons

    Flat organization with limited opportunity for professional growth. Paper market is tough and no room for diversification. Cash cow stage, but how long will it last?

    Tough market to be in. Keep working at it and hope other opportunities come around.

    Fast decision making, team orientated no politics atmosphere. Best practices sharing is encouraged, Easy intranet communication between different units worldwide. Affordable benefit package includes health insurance, dental 401k, life insurance. Good relations between management and union labor.

    Sometimes too fast decision making; if bottom line stays red too long, the operation unit will be closed down. However, employees are treated decent and means provided to find new opportunities

    I worked at UPM-Kymmene (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good and friendly staff and good benefits. Growing company in the field of contract manufacturing.

    Growing fast using traditional management structure. Some departments are combined and overlapping of responsibilities.

    To be effective some departments may need to separate as the business grows so it can serve clients in a more efficient manner.

    Pros

    Hours aren't bad. Some of the bosses are a little demanding.

    Cons

    There main office is in Finland so you get very little say in how processes are run. Basically have to do everything there way even if it doesn't make sense locally.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a good job and always looking ahead.


  9. "Operator"

    Pros

    Get enironment for learning new skills and working with different types of instrumentation. Client contracts allow for different types of drug testing than a stand alone commerical facility would provide. Great staff to work with

    Cons

    Not enough time provided to complete all assigned tasks for work. Employee's work long hours (they are compensated) but you will never have a point were you feel as though you are caught up with work.

    Advice to Management

    Get more employees to help with work load
