    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable employer, good benefits and great people. One of the area's best places to work when combining compensation and hours.

    Cons

    If working in the plant, the hours can be long if you are not used to it or unable to stand for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. They are your biggest asset. Bottom lines are important but sometimes people need to feel they are more than a number.

    Great leadership at the management levels within the plant and at the corporate levels. Old school, traditional values, and teamwork mentality.

    Higher management at corporate level is very shortsighted and does not regard long term second and third order affects for short sighted decisions to realize short-term gains.

    Advice to Management

    Follow all SEC laws, rules and regulations.

    Pros

    Great working conditions (Flex hours), nice real estate (HQ), excellent benefit options, great company supported volunteer opportunities.

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I needed a job and they had one. When you're in need of a paycheck you can't be choosy. Well, I needed a paycheck so I wasn't choosy.

    Cons

    See above, it's much easier to discuss what the benefits were and assume all else was a con. Working for Inland was a pleasure much in the same way herpes isn't.

    Advice to Management

    The company has been acquired so there isn't really much to say here.
