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

Pros

Wonderful people, great safety culture, everyone cares about each other and it's a beautiful place to work.

Cons

Like any corporation they are beholden to their shareholdes and as a result I have been through many rounds of layoffs. It is stressfull when it happens and hard to see your coworkers leave. Afterward it can be difficult to pick up the slack but you do.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A genuine and sincere focus on safety, which I laud, but..........Compensation is slightly above average, and health insurance is ok. Workload is reasonably to easy.

    Cons

    Very slow to react, with the exception to safety. If safety were a salable commodity we'd have the corner, block, and city on the market, but its not. Don't misunderstand, I have worked elsewhere, to others safety is a word given lip service, here it is the real thing. Some things, however, need to be dealt with common sense.

    A lot of talent and experience is wasted because of ineptitude, ego, and territorialism by middle management. Meetings, and the voluminous amount of Emails don't help me do my job; a Manager and Planning Dept. that are there to support me would. Work Orders that tell me my housekeeping responsibilities, or the need to review upcoming jobs for parts etc waste your time and don't benefit me.

    In general, a lot of missed opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to buy into that people are your greatest asset!
