I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation

Pros

Nice place to work because everyone is friendly and helpful. Laid back environment and easy to take vacation days. People are knowledgeable and other departments will help each other.

Cons

Not much room to move up. Pay is not as competitive because same job for other companies has a much higher salary. But this company looks good on a resume because it is a well known corporation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More competitive salary

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great hourly pay. Recession proof consumer products. Extreme focus on safety. Additional performance pay for reaching key goals.

    Cons

    Accepting change related to strong focus on the bottom line. After over 20 years of employment with this company it was purchased and became privately owned. The owners drive the company on a set of principles called Market based management(MBM). It was difficult at first adjusting from being a human to being a commodity. But reality is in this system what you contribute is what you are worth to them. They reward innovation, reliability, safety, adding value, etc. Don't plan on working here and doing enough to just skate by. You won't last long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Somehow consider the humanity of those that work hard to make this company successful. Right now it is all about the bottom line. Time off flexibility, etc. continues to erode as policies evolve. We are not machines, we have emotions and families.
