    I worked at Temple-Inland

    Pros

    The office culture, while conservative was very friendly and family-oriented. Most employees worked with the company for over 20 years. Great place to learn the ropes.

    Cons

    While compensation was fair, it was a bit on the low end of the range.

    I worked at Temple-Inland

    Pros

    Company culture was one of encouraging individual growth and support.

    Cons

    The business decision to consolidate multiple, un-related lines of business proved to be more challenging and resulted in the firm's financial issues. I believe the company was divested and sold.

    Great Company, Great Internal Audit Department

    Former Employee - Operational/Financial Auditor II in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Operational/Financial Auditor II in Austin, TX

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a great experience learning and growing in the internal audit department and learning a manufacturing setting. Company was lean and experienced.

    Cons

    The company was acquired by a larger competitor so it is unknown what could have been if TIN would have acquired others, was able to exit unprofitable business lines, and avoid the acquisition.

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Super strong IT department
    -Good benefits including pension plan
    -Able to control your own destiny
    -Good mix between work and fun
    -All my colleagues were really smart and wonderful people, many of whom I'm still friends with after leaving the company

    Cons

    At the end budgets got really tight. All meals, travel and training were cancelled. This of course was to attract buyers, which worked as the company was sold to International Paper. Also, the performance review for employees was dreadful and a complete waste of time. But I fear this is true of most companies this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, this company no longer exists. It was absorbed by International Paper. Which was upper management's plan for several years. So good job, I guess?

    I worked at Temple-Inland as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    All of my supervisors had open door policies and gave me a lot of great guidance. Most everyone is very friendly and makes you feel welcome right away. There a flexible work hours which promotes a good work-life balance. Pay is very fair and it seems there is a good track for advancement.

    Cons

    Training was good but more informal than I would have preferred. There is also a lot of talking behind people's backs, but that probably happens everywhere.
