    Weyerhaeuser. It is what you make of it.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with. All the ideas are considered and valued with an open door policy. Everybody works together to get things done.
    The opportunities are there if you want to work for them.

    ConsBenefits are getting cut every year even though profits are up. There is a definite class separation between hourly and salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTRY GETTING MORE TRAINING PROGRAMS. BRING BACK THE BONUS.

    If you work in Federal Way, it's probably a good place to work. Not so much for other locations.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and pay. For the most part they treat employees well. Room for advancement.

    ConsBureaucracy. Big company mentality. Lots of layoffs. Lots of favoritism. If they can't see you in Federal Way they can't figure out how to work with you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior IT Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat environment, flexible. Lots of room for growth.

    ConsA lot of older mill "mentality" that can be hard to circumnavigate at times. The environment is changing, but if you are not used to it, it could be a challenge.

    My experiene has been accademically fulfilling with great variety in the work I do.

    Technician III (Current Employee) Federal Way, WA

    ProsWonderful people, great safety culture, everyone cares about each other and it's a beautiful place to work.

    ConsLike any corporation they are beholden to their shareholdes and as a result I have been through many rounds of layoffs. It is stressfull when it happens and hard to see your coworkers leave. Afterward it can be difficult to pick up the slack but you do.

    Good HR policies and practices

    IT Consultant (Current Employee) Federal Way, WA

    ProsLike the culture, people and short commute. Love my job supporting SAP. Believe in the mission and goals of the company and am very impressed with emphasis on safety for all workers, employees and contractors.

    ConsNot a technology company and does not adopt new technology trends as quickly. It is mainly detrimental to my type of career as I don't get to use the latest operating system (Windows XP on my desktop) or new apps as quickly as I'd like to. Leadership mentoring and career advancements are not plentiful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is tendency to be slow to adopt new ideas and trends. Inject more urgency in decision-making and not get mired in bureaucracy.

    Prosopportunities galore with Weyerhaeuser Corporation...enjoyed the relationship building with co workers and customers. Still have relationships with both..... Value selling seminar was invaluable...

    ConsPolitical game playing caused uncomfortable daily interacting with management. Dis-liked having to walk softly around someone that had no clue about management skills.....

    Good Place to Work

    Human Resources Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI have worked for Weyerhaeuser for 15+ years in various businesses, multiple sites/states and multiple jobs (hourly production to management.) In my experience, Weyerhaeusr is committed to ensuring a safe working environment, following strong environmental practices, maintaining great business ethics, encouraging strong community involvement, and providing competitive wages and benefits. The people I have worked with in this time care about one another, appreciate our diversity and creativitiy, are passionate about what they do and accept nothing less than the best.

    ConsOur culture seems to have changed from feeling like a small, family-like organization to a profit driven business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on ensuring the long-term success of the company with profitability, but don't forget WHO it takes to make those result happen.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
