    Pros

    Extremely committed to employee safety and well-being and ample opportunities for diversity and vertical progression. Most first line supervisors and even middle managers have been promoted from within and started in the general labor pool.

    Cons

    Occasional corporate/union tension and vulnerability to layoffs mostly due to industry volatility. Corporate aims at cutting pension funds and employee benefits first when market starts to weaken.

    Advice to Management

    Sustain safety and employee well-being atmosphere in place. Continue promoting from within and selectivity of seasonal rehiring.

  3. Great Location and Long Term Vision

    Pros

    -One of the few companies that really lives their values
    -Long term decision making in everything they do creates a culture where short term gains are discarded for more strategic initiatives even if there would be a short term loss
    -The people are nice and down to earth atmosphere with co-workers is the friendliest I have ever experienced all the way from hourly workers to executives
    -Management has passion for what they do

    Cons

    -Timber industry is cyclical and oftentimes the downturns can be painful especially with the close relationships developed between co-workers
    -Hours can be long

    Advice to Management

    Continue current initiatives and focus on developing internal talent more. Find the sweet spot between world class management and entrepeneurial spirit at the plant level.
