    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable employer, good benefits and great people. One of the area's best places to work when combining compensation and hours.

    Cons

    If working in the plant, the hours can be long if you are not used to it or unable to stand for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. They are your biggest asset. Bottom lines are important but sometimes people need to feel they are more than a number.

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership at the management levels within the plant and at the corporate levels. Old school, traditional values, and teamwork mentality.

    Cons

    Higher management at corporate level is very shortsighted and does not regard long term second and third order affects for short sighted decisions to realize short-term gains.

    Advice to Management

    Follow all SEC laws, rules and regulations.

    Pros

    Great working conditions (Flex hours), nice real estate (HQ), excellent benefit options, great company supported volunteer opportunities.

    Large company which can lead to getting lost in the 'big room'. In certain departments management would not back-up their employees.

    Pros

    They are open to needed time off and provide decent benefits. I also think the office location is very convenient

    Cons

    Upper management can be very harsh with the working personnel and fail to show respect to those that do the heavy lifting.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so harsh even though its obvious you think you know everything. This comment is directed at operations management as well as corporate management.
