Opportunity Lost

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Weyerhaeuser (more than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule
Decent benefits
Promotes volunteerism

Cons

Promotions are made through favoritism, chauvinism, and cronyism.
The path to success - do not challenge existing ideas, processes, or implementation; be cunning and manipulative; accept only unaccountable responsibilities.
Upper management views IT/software as a production line, rather than an innovative and creative process.
Best practices are discouraged if they will extend an estimated work effort.
Technical decisions are dictated by product management and business stakeholders rather than those with the technical expertise.
Poor internal practices are reinforced by weak product management and a mandate by upper management that projects are released to both scope and date. Quality and usability are not a priority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop only promoting from within for management positions. Reshuffling the same people throughout the organization does not bring new ideas to the table. External hires infuse a fresh perspective on old problems. For all the talk of desired change, nothing changes, if nothing changes.
