    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great, hard working people working in Weyerhaeuser facilities who really care about each other, have deep roots in the forest products industry, and are very committed to meet the needs of their customers. Safety is serious value and is imbedded in everything.

    Cons

    An over 100 year old company which was built on creating sustainable growth and results for your grandchildren's generation has now evolved to caring only about the short term results to the shareholder. The company has progressed from 55,000 employees (with too much bureaucracy) to a 13,000 person company with no soul. Too leaders are only good at figuring out how to sell off everything for cash vs the ability to make those businesses successful. The engagement of employees has been slowly eroding in the last 5-10 years with senior leadership continually demonstrating their lack of respect and regard for the people who have built and sustained this formerly great company. Most employees were initially excited about the energy of the new CEO, but after a year it appears he is driven by ego and his short term name for himself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly the company cares only about looking good to the bankers and shareholder--without regard to the customer nor the employee who are all viewed as expendable. Do some serious thinking about what the results will be to the shareholder longer term if you are not taking care of the customer or your employees. Other companies with much greater financial returns think Weyerhaeuser has it backwards. Treat your employees as you would your finest customer. They will take care of the great customers. Do that right and you don't have to worry about the shareholder.
