    I worked at Louisiana-Pacific full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    When budget cuts happened, the CEO and CFO took it in stride, selling the corporate jets and flying coach to remote sites. The culture with upper management was open. When things were going poorly, they let everyone know.

    Cons

    Remote sites don't necessarily have upper management oversight, so if your manager isn't great, nobody knows but the people who work for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know better what's happening with your managers who aren't on site. Get some input from the employees who work for the people you manage.

    I worked at Louisiana-Pacific full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers, some flexibility, synergy within the regions, work hard play hard mentality at the field level

    Cons

    Politics....too many chiefs, truly a company that rewards favorites versus talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micromanage and create busy work just to make yourself look good to the executive leadership team. Trust your talented sales force. Please stop allowing marketing to control sales. Marketing does not contribute in a tangible way to the bottom line. Sales folks do...

    I worked at Louisiana-Pacific

    Pros

    Friendly, laid back culture. Most everyone in the company has a can do attitude. IT group's small size means that there means that there is an opportunity to make a real impact.

    Cons

    Senior management and the rest of the company doesn't place a high value on technology and IT. IT group as a whole is under resourced and over burdened. Salaries are below industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to view technology as a competitive advantage versus just a cost center.
