I worked at Weyerhaeuser full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very focused on safety of employees. Individual teams tend to work very well together and be loyal. Very little advancement during the downturn, but a good incentive program if you are high enough up in the company.

Cons

Very political leadership team. Lots of egos and power plays. They talk a lot about growth and advancement but more words than actions. Lots of meetings that are a waste of time because the decisions are actually made with the cronies in the hallway.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corp headquarters is like a library, zero pulse. Bring some energy into the company by getting younger and diverse workforce.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser

    Pros

    Used to be a great company to work for with good benefits. Leadership was 100% invested in the employee and the company so it was a win/win for all.

    Cons

    Over the past 5 years, some benefits (ie health care) have deteriorated. Some branches have not received raises in over 3 years. Lots of middle managers who are "yes" men to senior mgmt but to their employees they are rude, play favorites, don't totally understand their employee's work day and what is involved on a day to day work load. Favortism is out of control and people are not held accountable if they are "in good" with middle management. Everyone is not treated the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house...open your eyes and look at what your middle management is telling you and then take that info to your lower level employees who are actually on the front lines and see if they jive. Guarantee that most of the time, your lower level employees (who are the GLUE) are seeing/hearing things totally different than your middle managers.

    Pros

    Many long term associates with a wealth of knowledge and market experience.

    Cons

    Many long term associates unwilling to embrace new tools and methods. Management lack of understanding of operational details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Associates that always tell you what you want to hear are not the best candidates to lead the company.
