Worst place to work in America, especially for women.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Rincon, GAFebruary 20, 2017
Swing shift work which is bad physically on an individual. What I learned is that corruption is bonafide in this organization. The workplace culture is dark as management treats employees with NO respect as automated robots. The hardest part is keeping the number/production. Dangerous job in which people get killed if they do not adhere to safety regulations. The enjoyable part was the money that is what makes the people continually to work and the become management cutthroats.
Pros
Money
Cons
No room for growth, women are objectified, numerous lawsuits which are swept under the rug, Physically and mentally demanding.

Good Company- Strange work culture
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 16, 2017
Non-standard work practices across the division.
Non-constant on their initiatives to standardize/align with KII.
MBM culture hard to sustain, very subjective.
Bonus structure and performance reviews very subjective.
Most managers are focused on cost reduction initiatives, so they miss the big picture.

Benefits and Compensation -competitive
Promotion opportunities- risky - prompt to go through a re-org

In some areas re-organization is constant, monthly or quarterly- makes everyone nervous
Pros
401K and work life balance
Cons
Management and Leadership

Loved working for GA-Pacific...enjoyed my job
Customer Replenishment Analyst (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 8, 2017
I loved my work and job responsibilities as it was fulfilling and I was able to accomplish tasks daily and met customer's needs and requirements as Publix Inventory Analyst/Customer Service.

My earlier years at G-P were all payroll related. I was a Division Payroll Manager before they centralized all payroll then I transferred to Customer Service for the same division - Consumer Products.

Loved both jobs!!! I retired early at age 62 only because of the commute and 12 hours days.
Pros
Chances for advancement, great benefits, great job
Cons
Commute only

Unless you are willing to forget your morals, you will not survive with new management
They used to be wonderful, but has changed from the CEO's vision to a dictatorship

High stress low reward
Worker (Former Employee) –  Madison, GAJanuary 31, 2017
If you miss the old days of management always yelling at you to get anything done, this is the place for you. All senior management seems to be constantly angry. There is very little praise for a job well done, because they will always find whatever didn't go right. The guiding principles that are posted everywhere is a great philosophy for a management team, but are not followed or propagated in any way.
Pros
Good amount of time off
Cons
Constant hostile work environment
