    I worked at Columbia Forest Products full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people and friendly culture, good stock ownership plan.

    Cons

    Poorly educated company, because Columbia Forest Products is an employee owned company, will normally hire from within. This has led to a with poorly educated middle management and problem solving by trial and error. The problem solving methods leads to solutions, but at a cost, both monetary and well being of employees health and family. Base pay is low and insurance benefits are poor. My state sponsored insurance for poverty level house-holds is better.

    I have been working at Columbia Forest Products full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The starting pay and benefits package is decent for production, okay for skilled tradesmen but they want everyone at production level so they don't have to pay more. They do offer paid time-off, though it is limited, but it is a perk. Initial training was thorough and very good, but little follow-up training.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking, supervisory is clique oriented and biased, the working atmosphere is hostile at best bordering abusive and complaints to human resources were redirected and ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should value the skills and commitment of employees and review the leadership within each facility

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
