    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    For now it's the benefit package, however that will change soon enough.

    Cons

    The entire executive staff has turned over within a year. The company has downsized so much and continues to eliminate positions randomly. Employees fear for their jobs because know one knows who is next. It is an unhealthy working environment, I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop eliminating positions randomly and start taking care of your employees.

    Pros

    Good benefit package is still available

    Cons

    Major downsizing followed by almost complete overhaul of upper management which consequently made a family oriented company move into a cold inhuman workplace.

    I worked at Green Diamond Resource Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The California Division employees are a wonderful group of people with great values and work ethic. They are also highly skilled and knowledgeable in their area, especially the foresters and wildlife technicians. I worked in the accounting department and my coworkers became my second family. I also developed strong friendships with those who worked in other areas of the company such as forestry and lumber manufacturing.

    Cons

    There was some corporate turnover (headquartered in Seattle) when I left which seemed to shift the corporate culture and strain relations with the California Division. There has also been a decline in business for the Redwood timber and lumber industry which was continuing when I left.

    I worked at Green Diamond Resource Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family oriented. Flexible. Professional. Great benefits. Genuine people. Integrity in management.

    Cons

    Huge downsizing across all of California division over the last decade (in my opinion, based on bad business decisions).

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions based on long-term profitability (ie; based on 50 year life cycles of the trees you harvest), otherwise, business decisions are short sighted and incongruent with the values the company was founded in.
