Great company being too strongly influenced by investors

Pros

Great benefits package and competitive wages. If you are fortunate to have a great manager, you have a good chance of attaining a good work life balance.

Cons

The company runs very lean, so the amount of work employees are expected to complete is not realistic in a standard works schedule. On the flip side of my positive comment. If you don't have a manager that is understanding, your work life balance will really suffer. The company has not come out with a top down policy to make it equitable. The company is also making many decisions based on investor feedback.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let the investors drive all the decisions.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser

    Pros

    Lots of fun and challenging things to work on with the possibility to work at many different locations throughout the country. Lots of people have worked here for many years and have valuable information that can be learned that may not be known anywhere else. With so many older workers the potential for younger employees should be great as a large number of the working population of Weyerhaeuser will be approaching retirement age soon. This will leave a large void that will need to be filled be younger employees.

    Cons

    Limited communication and direction from senior management as to the path of the company and how an employee can assist in moving the company down that path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make some decisions that will enhance the long term future of the company, not just boost the stock value so you and the major investors can make a quick return.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser

    Pros

    Weyerhaeuser has some of the best benefits in the industry.

    Cons

    Watching the company divest business units and employees during economic down times. We've been living with uncertainty for quite some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope the company's future includes growth once the financial picture clears up. No REIT! I think the partnership with Chevron holds great promise. The SMT has done a decent job of communicating potential changes to the employees wherever possible.
