    I have been working at Georgia-Pacific

    Pros

    Personal Development, and career opportunities. The company has gone a series of new owners over the past fifteen years with a continuous strive to improvement and energy and resource reduction, this has left the company with a reduced but highly prouctive asset base, with a competitive marketing strategy, Continued focus on product quality and the correct product portfolio, will see G.P. emerging from the present economic downturn with sustainable competitive advantage.

    Cons

    High expectations and over committment. A high focus on improving safety performance that is yielding a poor crop.

    Advice to Management

    implement and re-enforce roles responsibilities and expectations of all employee's. irradicate repetition and non value tasks.
