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 Management

More competitive salary

    Pros

    Professional working environment, respectful management.
    Now that Georgia Pacific is a private company (purchased by Koch Industries) a lot of the corporate bloat was reduced down to core efficient teams. Less people and more work getting done. At least in the IT side of GP.
    I really enjoyed my time at GP and felt that I was rewarded for my efforts most of the time.

    Read up on Charles Koch's book market based management to see if you would be a good fit for the culture. I personally found it fit my personal values so i embraced the idea.

    Cons

    Big company slower to make decisions.
    Management has good philosophies "Market Based Management" but not all leaders actually follow it.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace Market Based Management.
    Find ways to keep senior team members engaged and not too comfortable.
