Pros

Plum Creek has some of the best people! Because of the dispersed geography with small offices across the country, it has a small company feel. Many people have worked together for years, especially in the smaller towns, but they also have a welcoming attitude towards new talent.

It is a fairly flat organization, which allows for good communication.

Compensation is good, and the HR team stays current on pay rates in the market. The bonus program is generous and based on performance of the company and individual. Insurance and 401k match are good.

Cons

Because it is a flat organization, it can be difficult to advance. This is not a great place to race up the corporate ladder but is good for people who are willing to stay in their roles for several years.

Another potential downside is that some central functions are primarily based in one location (accounting in Arkansas and Montana, IT in Montana) and employees who work in a different location may feel disconnected from the group.

    I worked at Plum Creek Timber (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people and good work life balance. Good compensation, especially bonuses!!! Good benefits package, including pension, 6% 401k match, medial low and high deductible choices.

    Cons

    Merged with Weyerhaeuser. Bonuses cut in half, no pension, 3% match, only high deductible medical.

    Advice to Management

    They should have never merged, Plum Creek was a far better employer. Very sad.

    I worked at Plum Creek Timber full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time and the people at Plum Creek. Challenging work, co-workers would help in a pinch and management was approachable. Pay was good and the bonuses were even better!

    Cons

    The only cons were the medical and dental benefits (premiums were high and didn't cover as much) and merging with Weyerhaeuser.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you hadn't merged!
