    The salary and benefits packages were competitive

    A big ethnic group was a bully. Most managers there had no morality. Some analysts and managers were backstabbers and they were only interested in pursuing their own interests.

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with, many opportunities to advance and challenging work

    Cons

    CatalystPaper is notorious for overloading the workload of the motivated/competent employees and letting others coast by with little to no expectations. Certain staff are eligible for overtime, however the group that work 90% of the late hrs and call in are not. Paper Excellence does not pay their bills in a timely matter and due to that most suppliers have black listed them making it incredibly hard to run day to day operations.
