    Pros

    During my time at Rayonier the management was truly concerned about the individual employees development and engagement within the company. In any meeting big or small every employee was encouraged to speak up and there were no wrong questions or answers. Before Diversity and Inclusion were big buzz words in business I feel that Rayonier was already living by these standards.

    Cons

    The base pay was fair but not as high as some others in the same industry/region pay. The terrific environment, bonuses and perks did help to make up for this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ensure all employees feel valued and are engaged in their work.

    Pros

    Great training opportunities, local and national. Really interested in training employees across the US and allowing for lots of travel. Opportunity for growth if willing to relocate to remote locations, let me stress REMOTE. Great at training entry level employees, better than other similar timber companies.

    Cons

    Remote working locations, corporate culture focused on bottom line above all else, little interest in long term employee development and will make you move to remote places you don't want to be. Pay below industry standards.

    Pros

    During much of my time I worked in a stable environment. I had great support from my direct leadership and my projects were funded as needed. It was a challenging environment where I was expected to deliver consistent results. And that was something that I welcomed. You were paid well and the benefits were good. I worked with many great employees during my time.

    Cons

    Starting around 2007 the company changed. Senior management changed out and several former GP employees were brought in. Many felt the organization should run like GP. The problem was that Rayonier wasn't organized like GP & didn't have the resources to do what they did. Instead of honoring long-term values, the company changed. It became a very political organization where results did not matter as much as appearances. In time, several GP employees left & the company had to take drastic steps in splitting up.

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to the core values that made Rayonier a successful company for more than 70 years. Listen and count on your employees. Do not pay lip service to them.

    Pros

    Competitive pay scale. Good benefits. Could be a great job/ company if a few bad apples were culled out.

    Cons

    Zero work life balance. Leadership is terrible. You will be on the road a lot using your own vehicle. You are looked down upon for wanting to have a life outside of work. Worst company I have ever worked for. No HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the mid level managers with a track record of HR issues. Build a trust based relationship with your employees as no one trust the senior mgmt. team at all. The culture is full of analyst with absolutely no soft skills.
