    I worked at Weyerhaeuser full-time

    Pros

    Best company I have worked at yet. The people that I work with make the experience great. It is a very dynamic work environment and I have learned a lot by being here

    Cons

    There are many people here that are so used to doing things "the way we have always done them" that they miss out on opportunities to do things better. Having an outside approach and various experiences normally has been a benefit to the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring people are way better than you is a good idea, given the right person. However, I have met a lot of great workers here that are not consulted by management before a decision is made. It would help to get a close up view of where the challenges are from those that are working things on the ground level before implementing a solution.
