Excellent company that values their employees and helps them to grow in their careers!
As you can tell from the information listed below, it has been a long time since I worked there, so I cannot honestly comment on the current work environment. I would hope it is still as good as it was when I was there.
As I am sure most people would understand, it is based a lot on Management. I was very fortunate to have great management when I was an employee, and was given the opportunity to succeed an move up the line in responsibility.

Micro managed like puppets
If you liked to be micro-managed and never told you do a good job. Then this is the place to work for. Management never listens to the employees, even if they ask you for you opinion. Very frustrating place to work at.

All they care about is PRODUCTION!
Their only concern is producing lumber.
They don't care about the schedule. If you are on maintenace you can not leave until the mill is back up and running. I've been there for 18 hours straight before, with only 2 short breaks just to eat and get back to work. Production workers, supervisors, and managers get to go home and leave maintenace there to work all night. Favoritism and the good ol boy system runs rampant.

Nice Place to work
There is a great deal of work to do but it's challenging and a nice culture. Every day brings new challenges and it's a lot like drinking through a firehose. In order to be successful at GP, you must be adaptable and flexible and willing to change and grow.

Stepping stone - Hostile environment - overworked
For me, it helped open alot of doors. Stayed as long as I could stand it. My advice smile, be friendly, and agree with everything they say even if you don't agree.Take notes, ask lots of questions, KEEP CONTACTS & network as much as you can!!!! GP harmon is a division of GP so they play by their own rules. But will preach about guiding principles when it benefits them. They give the company a bad name. They want a puppet not an opinionated individual. Everyone values your opinions/ideas until it's not the same as theirs. Overtime I noticed GP Harmon hires very inexperienced employees and pays very low, but then everybody is extremely overworked. They also don't provide thorough training. The lack of training made my job more difficult. Sad thing about it nobody cares. They all do a very great job at pretending. Save yourself the stress, long nights and aggravation, life's too short! I had to ask myself was it worth it?
ProsNot micromanaged, learn as you go. Nice plant manager
ConsHigh turnover, unorganized, stressful. Hypocritical, no loyalty

They work you to the ground we work OT almost everyday. Compensation is good benefits is ok. Management use to tell or raise her voice in meetings or if your getting in trouble. She wants things her way or no way. no one likes working with that manager I consider management hostile. Culture is eh.

Large Corporation Home Office
Day started at 7:30 a.m. and could go on till 7pm , Then long drive home - this is Atlanta. But I learned an enormous amount from working in this corporate environment and the abilities afforded me to work hard and autonomously. Stressful but worth it. Company paid very well.
ProsSalary, benefits, credit union

Its an okay place to work
If they didn't work so much it'll be a better place and also if it was more structured as well. I think they should promote from within more, It's hard to make a career if no one doesn't give you the opportunity.

Solid sustainable job
Can be stressful but physically not hard. Just hot enviroment but with avaiable cool down zones for when your machine is running efficiently. Overall management is solid but pretty new themselves. Alot of new people and great culture forming. Principled Entrepreneurship. Only Cons is once you get to the top of your line of progression/ there is not much room to grow
