I worked at Weyerhaeuser full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

People are very nice to work with. Very social atmosphere and lots of fun things to do within the company.

Cons

Middle management was very focused too much on numbers instead of bringing out the best in their direct reports, or giving opportunity to those who want to work for this company. Can be very clique-ish.

    Pros

    There aren't many.
    Coworkers are nice.
    Decent location.

    Cons

    Management is not made up of effective leaders.
    You will never be promoted.
    Promotions are based on whether or not you will do whatever managment wants. Have to be a puppet.
    Underpaid for the work you do.
    Benefits have been cut.
    You don't have time to use your vacation.
    Management asks for input on ways to improve, then ignores suggestions choosing to go with their "better" plan.
    You're given constant praise until it comes time for annual reviews.
    To be successful, you need to say yes a lot: "Yes, I would love more work." "Yes, your idea is better than mine." "Yes, I already make too much money."
    Bottom line, they don't care about their employees. It's all about pleasing the shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need a serious overhaul. Starting with a lot of high up managers. A manager needs to have a solid understanding of the business, but also have a great set of social skills. Communication is horrible, which leads to the rumor mill running on overdrive. You are losing highly effective employees because better opportunities are arising all over. Anyone who has been there less than 10 years is looking elsewhere. Others are just riding it out because they don' t want to look for a new job at this point in their life.
