    Pros

    Rayonier is very flexible, the people are honest with you, you know where you stand. Conservative, so we make it through the tough times and excel in good times.

    Cons

    Rayonier runs really lean on people. You have a lot of work to do, and it is sometimes hard to do a really good job because you have to keep so many balls in the air.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    People within each department our tremendously helpful. Pay is above average. There was a real emphasis (in my department) on work/life balance. There was also an emphasis on employee improvement.

    Cons

    Some people are resistant to change but that's any job.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're taking care of your employees. You have some really great people there, it would be a shame to lose them because they don't feel engaged.

    Good communication. Rayonier is a good education in how things are done right. I would call it the "real business school".

    Cons

    Compensation is at the lower end for a company of their size.

    Keep up the good work.
