Pros

Good work life balance, easy access to executive leadership, very friendly and laid back atmosphere, job security, competent senior leadership.

Cons

Limited career growth opportunities overall, poor raises for strong performers, overall these are the two that stick out, overall good company to work for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer better raises when the company performs well, particularly when the company is posting record earnings, give back to employees.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Buckeye Technologies

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Incent and let lead
