    Pros

    Set schedule, yearly compensation increases, not difficult software use requirements. Paid expenses, and overall not a lot of micro management from the executive team. Potential to grow, but after a long sustained run within the organization.

    Cons

    High panel walls, no freedom creative thought

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible, allow for creativity and growth from within

    Pros

    Strong teamwork, good technical personnel, good access to executive staff, business open to change and willing to spend to make it happen

    Cons

    Too much work for the available staff level, too focused from IT perspective to look at new applications even thought the business was open to change

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn't have sold out to IP. You had a good model and know the gorilla in the room has slowed industry chaneeds to a glacial pace.

    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    The office culture, while conservative was very friendly and family-oriented. Most employees worked with the company for over 20 years. Great place to learn the ropes.

    Cons

    While compensation was fair, it was a bit on the low end of the range.
