    Rewarding job managing very good people

    Manager, Applications Development (Former Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsGood work life balance, excellent benefits and compensation. flexible hours with some ability to work from home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to listen and lead. Don't make hasty decisions in spite of recommendations from employees closest to the issue.

    Rayonier is a high class sweatshop

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRayonier's salary compensation is at market levels. It's bonus program for non-executives is not. Rayonier has a strong set of ethics.

    ConsRayonier cares much more about production and productivity than it does about employees. Employees commonly work very long hours and over weekends and holidays. It is common for employees to be performing tasks and roles that would normally be handled by 2 or more individuals. Work/Life balance is non-existent. Not an enjoyable place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCurrent employee surveys do not capture the real state of morale. Many employees fear retaliation if surveys were answered honestly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I've been here 21 years, it is a good, strong, stable company with good people working with me.

    Director, IT (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsRayonier is very flexible, the people are honest with you, you know where you stand. Conservative, so we make it through the tough times and excel in good times.

    ConsRayonier runs really lean on people. You have a lot of work to do, and it is sometimes hard to do a really good job because you have to keep so many balls in the air.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It’s all relative – Individual results will vary.

    Various (Current Employee)
    Tbilisi (Georgia)

    ProsIT, accounting, Performance fibers, good dividend, forested holdings, decent benefits. Depending on what department you go to, it’s hard to say what’s good or bad. I will say the I.T. & I.T. related folks & most all accounting folks are world class.

    Cons(won’t apply in all departments) counter - productive culture, assuming direction at times, double standards, limited advancement opportunities, , hypocrisy, Compensation/advancement/duties/flexibility based on cronyism/nepotism, mediocre communication, inconsistent bureaucracy; lack of identity (copying/obsessing about other competitors activities), little applicable training/inefficient hardware, “information is power” mentality reducing forward progress, you’ll have multiple bosses; all which do not effectively communicate with one another, resource shortage/inefficient delegation yielding large unmanageable workload, feigning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWatch out for PCL!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Old timers don't know how to treat and welcome new employees into the company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits, stability, many locations in which to work, stock market reflects a strong company and good investment for your future.

    ConsOutdated systems, poor training for new employees, THE SMELL at the pulp mills, poor performance awards, lack of understanding when it comes to taking days off for family or medical related appointments, shortage or resources creates a large unmanageable workload.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
