    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 Management

    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?

  3. The legacy that one was, is no longer the same.

    Pros

    Competitive pay with current market conditions. A larger company but structured to be able to work with other operational teams to accomplish tasks.

    Cons

    Temple Inland is no more as they have been bought out by International Paper. The structure within the workplace is changing.

    Pros

    The compensation was competitive. The company was closed on most holidays, and offered holiday pay if not.

    Cons

    The plant was poorly operated and the employees needs, and/or issues were never dealt with by management. Issues were never solved at the root of the problem, rather at the end of the process. Weekends were often required. The incorrect employees were blamed for problems/issues.

  9. Nice people

    Cons

    With so many different department it could be difficult to get an answer without going through several different channels

    Have a mentor type person for new hires to be able to go to when they need information.
