    Temple Inland is no more as they have been bought out by International Paper. The structure within the workplace is changing.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    Great environment
    Competent Managment
    Great learning experience
    Benefits are top notch
    Corporate offices are in Austin Texas

    Cons

    The company won't exist in 2012
    The disparity between executive management severance and worker severance is a bit large.
    But were lucky were getting anything at all.
    Layoffs in 2012 (Unless you get picked up by International Paper)
    Might have to move to Memphis Tennessee
    You see executives on a daily basis. All very nice, including Doyle.

    Temple-Inland was a strong, diverse fortune 500 company with avenues for growth.

    Pros

    The benefit package from Temple Inland was one of the best I have ever encountered. Since Temple Inland had so many different business, one could switch roles with little hassle.

    Cons

    While Temple Inland offered the benefits and stability of a large corporation, the ability to create change within the organization took a long time, as many managers had to approve.
