    Okay place to work, not enough opportunities for advancement.

    IT Developer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

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

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

    Operational/Financial Auditor (Current Employee) Austin, TX

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

    ConsThe company won't exist in 2012
    The disparity between executive management severance and worker severance is a bit large.

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

    Loan Officer (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsWhile 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.
