    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.


  2. Great Company, Great Internal Audit Department

    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 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?


  6. 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.

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