I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I previously state Geogia Pacific take their safety to the highest level. As well as in a greviance situation there is always a fair compromise usually worked out.

Cons

Biggest concern I have for the local Plant - Edmonton Alberta, they had no problem letting the facility go on s six month strike, while management was force to run the board line/crossing the picket line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more consistent with knowing the ground floor workers. Remember, U hired human being with different stories to life and really try to understand: you work with what you get. Maximize this realization and the crew dynamics go up and so does work effort/attitude.

    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Georgia-Pacific Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    IT is a dynamic organization filled with people who have a lot of experience. People are progressive and want to build systems and processes that are best practice if not cutting edge

    Cons

    This is an organization where people tend to stay for many years, so mobility at the senior levels can be somewhat limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide people more lateral opportunities for upward growth eventually.
