    I worked at Plum Creek Timber full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plum Creek had a great culture and was full of friendly, knowledgeable employees.

    Cons

    Company was sold to Weyerhaeuser--a good place to work in its own right.

    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!

    I worked at Plum Creek Timber full-time

    Pros

    Plum Creek was a great place to work. The culture was great and everybody was treated as equals. It was place where things got done and people enjoyed the work.

    Cons

    Inter-company mobility could have been a little better and also more disclosure on why certain individuals were promoted.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great boss. No issues here.

    I worked at Plum Creek Timber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above market salaries & benefits, interesting and challenging work. Not too political or bureaucratic and employees are generally empowered and engaged. Would have worked there for the foreseeable future if the merger with WY had not occurred.

    Cons

    Work environment (office in Columbia Falls MT) is sub-standard. Since there is a 20 word minimum requirement, I will go on to say that this was a great place to work before the merger with WY.

    Advice to Management

    As a former employee I have no advice to give to current management.

  8. "Sad to see a great company end"

    I have been working at Plum Creek Timber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great camaraderie, higher than average compensation, good leadership.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on the housing market turnaround causing it to "backfill" with land sales. In retrospect, that model was doomed making the merger inevitable.
