    Pros

    Corporate workplace with a family feel. Compensation was great and overtime was allowed. Hours were flexible. Lots of great people with a passion for their jobs and willing to improve and grow. Management rewarded employees regularly for meeting goals

    Cons

    Guidelines and structure were vague at some points. To many projects were assigned at a time to allow transition to other facilities.

  2. Most employees were friendly and helpful, and the pay was good.

    Pros

    Plum Creek has some of the best people! Because of the dispersed geography with small offices across the country, it has a small company feel. Many people have worked together for years, especially in the smaller towns, but they also have a welcoming attitude towards new talent.

    It is a fairly flat organization, which allows for good communication.

    Compensation is good, and the HR team stays current on pay rates in the market. The bonus program is generous and based on performance of the company and individual. Insurance and 401k match are good.

    Cons

    Because it is a flat organization, it can be difficult to advance. This is not a great place to race up the corporate ladder but is good for people who are willing to stay in their roles for several years.

    Another potential downside is that some central functions are primarily based in one location (accounting in Arkansas and Montana, IT in Montana) and employees who work in a different location may feel disconnected from the group.
