Former Employee - Line Take Off Forklift Op/Shipping Loader in Surrey, BC (Canada)

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.

    Current Employee - Operator in Atlanta, GA (US)

    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.

    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.
