Company Culture

Lots of politics. Everybody wants to show off, and then on top REOs are very painful and expensive. They are worst bunch.

Internal Communication

No open communication from leadership team.

Workplace Safety

Fatalities are common here at IP. At least 4 to 5 fatalities a year, and because management treat the employees so badly that while working they are depressed and fatality occurs.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make sure that REOs that are sitting and milking IP do their job well rather playing politics with good employees. Once good technical employees are out of way, REOs can do anything.

What I like about the company

Nothing. The safety is poor and in this century they have 4-5 fatalities every year.

What I dislike about the company

Politics played by REO and capital group. They all collude to kick a intelligent people out of project. Every project done by REOs has failed. Not a single project done by REOs has failed and all failed project are 5 to 10 times the cost.

Suggestions for improvement

  • That they would give one weekend of work and one weekend off that they would have two different shifts A and B so you would work Friday Saturday Sunday be off Monday and Tuesday come back Wednesday Thursday then deal Friday Saturday or Sunday all for 12 hour shifts instead of working 7 days a week or work 12-hour shifts 5 days a week and have the weekends off or just work playing 8 hours a day

What I like about the company

Made a ton of friends and the money is awesome they're very high and safety and very clean

What I dislike about the company

You work anywhere from 6 to 7 Days 12 hour long shifts and a hot environment during the evenings from 7 to 7 in the morning you're constantly on your feet picking up stacking restacking counting measuring

Suggestions for improvement

  • Overall their isn’t a whole lot that needs improvement. And if any improvements are needed then their is a process set up to be able to make those improvements.

What I like about the company

The pay is excellent because our mill is unionized. The benefits are good, and there is definitely job security. It is shift work but it’s 12 hours and you get a week off every month.

What I dislike about the company

Management needs to learn to trust its employees better. Their needs to be less micromanagement from the company.
