    I have been working at Boise Cascade full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    CEO, President, regional manager, etc. very caring and competent. There are a lot of great supervisors
    Decent salaries and benefits
    Employees feel valued

    Cons

    It's a bit of a good ol' boy system (at least at this region)
    There are no management tracks and promotions are slow
    Seems like a large discrepancy in women's salaries compared to men's salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of brilliant younger employees who are stuck in entry level or secretary type jobs. If these employees were put on a "management track" of some sort, they would be able to contribute a lot more to the company. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing a lot of talent to other companies, as well as a large skills discrepancy when all the baby boomers retire and the 20-somethings don't have the experience to fill their shoes.
