    Pros

    Working at Boise Cascade/OfficeMax was a positive experience. They care for their employees. They made coming to work fun. There were opportunities to cross train and grow. I actually did not cringe when Monday came around because I liked working there. All my co-workers were like a second family. I truly miss working there, but will always remember it fondly.

    Cons

    It could be slow climbing the ladder there, but they still gave you the opportunity to learn other positions so when the time was right you could move up.

    Advice to Management

    I would just say to continue to do the great work that they have been doing all these years. I had quite a few managers there and loved them all.

    I have been working at Boise Cascade full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Maintains a decentralized structure but rapidly deploys best practices. Strong and efficient internal controls for accounting and HR.

    Cons

    Easy to become impatient

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the transition from older associates to newer ones.... You may experience a much greater loss of productivity than you anticipated in the next 5 years due to a loss of many associates to retirement.

    Pros

    Company provides great benefits for employees.

    Cons

    BCC is a good company. The job I have now has very little contact with other people so it makes it difficult to get enthusiastic about going to work every day.

    I've been with the company for a short time now and I'm extremely pleased with the organization all together. Everyone has been extremely accommodating and eager to help whenever I need it. They mean it when they say they have an "Open Door Policy"! I feel very fortunate to have been selected for this position!

    Cons

    I've yet to find any cons with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Doing What Your Doing!
