What I like about the company

It's a great company. I've worked in both corporate staff and manufacturing roles at GPI's plants. GPI has a progressive track record of M&A, so one of the more enjoyable aspects of the company is that there are always opportunities to work on integrating these companies and learning from and meeting coworkers in newly acquired business. There are many talented people at this company, so I've always found ample opportunity to learn from the experience of others at GPI. Lastly, I find GPI rewards those with initiative.... if you bring a good attitude and show up and work smart, I've seen good career growth for those who do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Promote more females into management positions.

What I like about the company

Positive environmental image (makes recycled paper products, encourages recycling, responsibly manages forests), good partner in local communities, lots of variety in daily work, fairly good recognition for a job well-done, company is growing and making good strategic acquisitions all over the world.

What I dislike about the company

A very lean organization, so sometimes feels overwhelming to get things done with few resources. Salary is fair but annual increases are very low. Highly skewed toward male managers vs. female.

Company Culture

Big disconnect what the culture is at corporates versus what is expected and really happens at the local level

Support from management

Local is great

Teamwork

Local team work is great. Not much help from the corporate team.

Freedom to work independently

Empowered to get it done otherwise it doesn’t happen.

Internal Communication

Communication is pretty good at the local level and from the top down.

Work-Life Balance

There is no balance.

Job Security

Lots of talk about closures over the years so no one really knows what’s coming.

Handicapped Accessibility

Old buildings so they do the best they can

Workplace Safety

Safety is a priority
