Small company in a large corporte culture

Weak manager
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Belleville, ON20 January 2017
Small plant with lots of internal power struggles. The culture used all the correct buzz words but training and team work was lacking. Back door meeting and go around was the normal operational procedure. My position had been filled by 5 people over 6 years.
Pros
good pay
Cons
poor management, lack of control of the production floor, no new ideas for years

Leader in the corugation and packaging industry
Laminator Stacker, Feeder, Operator (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON25 June 2016
Quality control, and customer satisfaction are second only employee safety and security. Learned group dynamics, leadership, and how to think like a manager. Good team spirit, with above average co-worker commitment to achieving goals. The hardest part of the job is deciding to seek advanced career opportunities, thus leaving this job. The willingness to be taught by senior management, I found to be exceedingly desirable.
Pros
Employee morale
Cons
Rotating schedules

Accounting Clerk II (Former Employee) –  Etobicoke, ON2 December 2013
In this role of accounts payable, main responsibilities were, creating cheques, matching backup to invoices, investigations. This role advanced my accounting knowledge and lead me to further my career in this field. All co-workers were great to work with and the hardest part was when the division was sold. I enjoyed working at Domtar Packaging (Norampac) and miss the family atmosphere.
Pros
great benefits, family environment
Cons
when the divison was sold
