Buckeye Technologies Reviews
Pros – A lot of autonomy
Cons – Limited $ investment in some site
Pros – the people are the best and really care
Cons – very heavy workload, need more mgmt hired, with so many extra duties it is hard to do all well
Advice to Senior Management – offer incentives for healthy living and a gym onsite. would greatly help with out of hand healthcare costs for the many unhealthy workers there. Also need more shift employees, their overtime is too high and if the company truly cares about safety they need to get all overtime lowered...its way too high for the shift workers.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Despite a few bad actors, BKI has some very solid thinking in an industry where times are difficult almost all the time. John and a few people around him have the right thinking and that does help. With new focus on cash and lean, BKI has the tools to make good headway when times are at least better.
Cons – While the right thinking is in place, execution of strategy follows an old style and is too slow. Too many people have a vested interest in the status quo and people who can really execute sometimes cannot. The internal politics despite the wishes are indeed overwhelming more solid results.
Advice to Senior Management – Incent and let lead
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
