Praktikum (Former Employee) –  Hamburg16 July 2019
Das Praktikum war sehr langweilig, sehr lange Arbeitsstunden ohne etwas tun zu können. Die Aufgaben war nicht vielfältig meist Pc-Arbeit.
man wird oft als Praktikant vergessen.Das Ziel vom Praktikum ist Fehlgeschlagen.

Man könnte das Praktikum besser gestalten und interessanter machen.

Als uitzendkracht een voetveeg
1ste operator (Former Employee) –  Hoogezand19 May 2019
Essity Hoogezand is inmiddels een veelkoppig monster geworden die onder druk van share holders presteert. Iedereen zit op een eiland.

De top is topzwaar en vooral met zichzelf bezig. Op UCM Baby zitten de Moppers meer in de kantine, dan dat ze aan de machine staan. Motivatie is bij sommige ver te zoeken.

Departement managers en unit managers op deze afdeling voegen niets toe, hebben vooral op papier kwalificaties, enige betrokkenheid is bij de salarisstrook. Kritische houding? Dat is niet handig, op korte termijn wordt je afgeserveerd.
Pros
Veel pauze
Cons
Slaaf van de machine

un management incompétent
Agent de maitrise (Former Employee) –  Hondouville (27)28 February 2019
Des employés qui connaissent le job mais font face à un encadrement sans scrupule ce qui démotive totalement le personnel.
Le service rh est d'une incompétence qui dépasse l'entendement , et laisser ainsi est incompréhensible de la part de ce groupe .
Pros
salaire
Cons
service rh, encadrement en général

A joke
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KY26 February 2019
Under Wausau this was a great place to work. They seemed to care about the employees and had people in management that knew what they were doing. Now since SCA/Essity has taken over it shows. They have put people in management positions that don’t know nothing about the department. They had management tell employees they wanted them to quit. There’s now a lot of people that is looking for new jobs and they can’t seem to understand why. They recently tried hiring about 10-12 people and only 2 people put in applications. The only way to advance up in this place now is being a suck up cause that’s the only people they care about. The way it’s going I’ll be surprised if this place doesn’t shut down in or before 2021.
Pros
Paid lunch, vacation
Cons
Rotating shift

Darwinistic Work Environment
Staff Member (Former Employee) –  Kentucky1 February 2019
The transition from Wausau Paper to Essity saw a dramatic change in the on-site business culture which, in my opinion, was for the worse. From my perspective, it went from an open, collaborative and supportive culture to one that is very much the opposite in nature. Instead of being able to freely express ideas, opinions and alternate viewpoints without fear of reprisal, it became necessary to monitor every word spoken and written to ensure it would not be negatively viewed by senior plant management.

While Essity as a corporation has a positive and theoretically sound mission statement and core values; and it appears corporate leadership does its best to both model and instill these values; senior site leadership does not value or 'live' these principles. From my perspective, it appeared to only apply to (almost) everyone else. Which is disappointing because the plant had a very sound, experienced workforce that could have been accessed and engaged to help drive the business forward. Instead, experienced, knowledgeable members were/are being woefully undervalued and underutilized with many opting to take jobs elsewhere or who have been downsized to cut cost.

In the near term, the company as a whole appears to be in a good position relative to most of its direct competitors and is actively working to maintain and eventually grow it's share of the market. But while the company's message is fairly employee friendly, there is no real loyalty to employees as they will eliminate positions without much apparent thought or concern if they feel economics dictates the need.
  more... Would I recommend working for Essity? I would with the caveat that one goes in with the understanding the company doesn't offer the greatest job security, the culture is hyper-competitive (me first) and that it be at a facility not located in Kentucky.  less
Pros
Company is investing in growing its business, appears to have a decent plan for outlasting its competition, better than average benefits, personable and fairly engaged corporate leadership, environmentally friendly.
Cons
Ineffective site managment; poor job security; poor systems; ineffective decision making structure

Poor Management
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Harrodsburg, KY15 October 2018
Management doesn't care about their people. promise the world and how great things are going then turn around and do the opposite. Through the last 2 years people have quit, fired, or left for other reasons yet no Replacements making it Harder and stressful for everyone else because the Extra work land on everyone else which over time puts more and more strain on its employees which once again they Don't seem to care.
Pros
Decent pay, Benifits
Cons
Managment, lack of support for the People who actually make the money for Company
