    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Super strong IT department
    -Good benefits including pension plan
    -Able to control your own destiny
    -Good mix between work and fun
    -All my colleagues were really smart and wonderful people, many of whom I'm still friends with after leaving the company

    Cons

    At the end budgets got really tight. All meals, travel and training were cancelled. This of course was to attract buyers, which worked as the company was sold to International Paper. Also, the performance review for employees was dreadful and a complete waste of time. But I fear this is true of most companies this size.

    Advice to Management

    None, this company no longer exists. It was absorbed by International Paper. Which was upper management's plan for several years. So good job, I guess?

    Pros

    There are NONE, they were bought by International Paper

    Cons

    Oppressive Upper Management Style with little regard for people. Doyle was only there to make the company attractive for sale and was successful in that.

    Advice to Management

    None needed, they got their corporate buyouts and have left the rest of us to try to be employed by International Paper
