    I have been working at Boise Cascade full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Maintains a decentralized structure but rapidly deploys best practices. Strong and efficient internal controls for accounting and HR.

    Cons

    Easy to become impatient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful with the transition from older associates to newer ones.... You may experience a much greater loss of productivity than you anticipated in the next 5 years due to a loss of many associates to retirement.

    I worked at Boise Cascade

    Pros

    Working at Boise Cascade/OfficeMax was a positive experience. They care for their employees. They made coming to work fun. There were opportunities to cross train and grow. I actually did not cringe when Monday came around because I liked working there. All my co-workers were like a second family. I truly miss working there, but will always remember it fondly.

    Cons

    It could be slow climbing the ladder there, but they still gave you the opportunity to learn other positions so when the time was right you could move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would just say to continue to do the great work that they have been doing all these years. I had quite a few managers there and loved them all.

    I worked at Boise Cascade

    Pros

    It is a highly professional company, sales and operations structure allways in place ready to generate communication and performance.

    Cons

    It was a tough change regarding the Office Max aquisition, we allways wanted more information in order to be prepared for the change, but things happened very quicly, which also meant to learn how to work in that environment. Not bad however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To review all past profiles not currently in your company, and device a "recovery plan" I am sure you will find pleasant surprises.
