Pros

Good people to work with
Local Management is trying hard to make it a safe and enjoyable place to work

Cons

Corporate leadership has taken questionable steps:
-Sold off or shut down large portions of the company.
-Implemented Salary/Wage freeze, Suspended 401K match, Suspended Bonus program, but senior leadership still received stock grants.
-Tranistioning to reduced medical & retirement benefits in 2010 - placing more burden on the employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1)Lead by Example. It will be easier for employees that actually do the work to stomach necessary cuts if they see the same cuts being taken by senior management team.
2)What is the vision? Will the company soon be a REIT or will it maintain its manufacturing role and assets?

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser

    Pros

    Very nice campus, good about sick time, good telecommuting options, van share, free bus pass. No other pros I can think of.

    Cons

    Really bad place to work these days. Going thru major downsizing, no opportunities for advancement, no technology advancement. Continuously shrinking company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cuts went too far and too deep. There will be need to bring up lots of people up to speed once conditions improve.
