    Nice people

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time

    Pros

    I had a lot of opportunities to grow. Everyone that I dealt with was mostly friendly and helful. Managers were available if there was a problem

    Cons

    With so many different department it could be difficult to get an answer without going through several different channels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a mentor type person for new hires to be able to go to when they need information.

    Pros

    There are NONE, they were bought by International Paper

    Cons

    Oppressive Upper Management Style with little regard for people. Doyle was only there to make the company attractive for sale and was successful in that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None needed, they got their corporate buyouts and have left the rest of us to try to be employed by International Paper

    Overall, a good place to work. But management is very disrespectful towards employees.

    I worked at Temple-Inland

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Lots of overtime,depending on the season. Friendly employees.

    Cons

    The current management team is very disrespectful towards employees. If you need to take personal time off they won't give it to you or they'll "lose" you're request,even if you request it in advance. They practice favoritism and treat certain employees better than others. They get mad at any little thing that goes wrong,even when it's they're fault, they still blame it on the employees. It's always the employees fault, never theirs. The production supervisors are pretty good, it's just the upper management that's bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect. The company would be nothing without all their hard work.
