    I have been working at Verso full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Verso is committed to safety. The company likes consistency across all it's operations. Company likes to put people first. Company employs union labor.

    Cons

    Company is making a product in a market that is shrinking and has tough sales competition. Recently, the company has emerged from bankruptcy, so future decisions may reflect guidelines from that event.

    Advice to Management

    Verso needs to review middle management. There still seems to be a "good, old boys club" that is holding the company back. Company needs to continue to depend on its union force, for work that is consistent and productive.

    Pros

    Verso is a good company to work for, benefits and pay are higher than the average for most positions. Flexibility is a definite benefit. Safety is the priority.

    The overall company has its ups and downs and is seeing a lot of change. There are times it can be a stressful place to work - if you let it.

    I worked at Verso full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good group of people. Lead the industry with the best assets.

    Cons

    Paper is a dying industry. It is a conglomerate of companies through mergers and acquisitions. Our most recent one seems to be too big of an acquisition to swallow. Management has a difficult time getting in the market. We are way over out heads. The pricing desk struggles responding in a timely fashion. Too many reps in a given geographical territory.

    Advice to Management

    Quite hiding behind reports and get out to see customers.

    Verso is very safety oriented at its mills and its one of the things that I really enjoy about working for the company. Above that, they've got a great customer service team which strives to make the customer happy!

    Cons

    Shift work takes a toll on your body.

    bonus incentives, 401K & insurance are as good or better than any other company.
