    Pros

    Boise Inc. is a stable company with decent benefits. The employees are great to work with. If you are a good networker, you might have a possibility of growth within the company.

    Cons

    There is not enough growth. Pay is low. Depending on the department you take a position in, you could quickly outgrow your job role. Supervisors have no experience outside of this company and most of them have no management training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. If you repeatedly get complaints to HR for the same issues with the same department, make an effort to change things. Look at the management style of the different departments, if the turnover is unusually high, there might be a problem with the management in that department. Invest in training your employees and management staff.

    I have been working at Boise

    Pros

    Great location in the PDX area and management is really good at allowing their employees to balance the work/life issues. The organization is so thin, everyone has opportunities to make decisions.

    Cons

    Smallish company in rapidly consolidating and deteriorating industry with brutal loan covenants. As a result, the company must focus on the near term financials and can't worry about developing people and longer terms strategic issues. So, you'll get opportunities to make decisions at the level you're currently at, but you won't get many (or any) promotional opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much...given the loan convenants, their priorities are rational. Only thing they need to worry about is loosing talent as soon as the job market turns.
