      Current Employee - Accountant 

      I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time

      Pros

      Great team environment, good work /life balance, opportunities to get onto separate projects or other teams, strong focus on developing people, encouraged to improve processes

      Cons

      Pay and benefits are not competitive for Seattle, management slow on communicating changes, not flexible when it comes to working from home, lacking in diversity, favoritism comes into play a lot for manager decisions, managers do not always act on employee concerns

      Advice to Management

      Work better at hiring good, respectable people who will contribute to the good culture that is already in place. Listen to your employees and act on concerns. Share personnel changes more quickly. Provide more flexible work policies.

      Increased focus on hourly employees.

      Pros

      The people I work with are smart, driven, and ambitious, but they are also caring and put a big emphasis on people development. Weyerhaeuser is the leader in the industry and an exciting place to work.

      Cons

      There is a lot of change and movement, so people need to be flexible in order to be successful here. That isn't necessarily a bad thing.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Weyerhaeuser full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Middle and upper management get bonus’s and excellent pay.

      Cons

      Everyone below them, nothing. Just 16 hour days and no raises for years while the higher ups rep the benefits from your suffering.

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up, you have nothing to lose.

      I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Fellow employees are nice. A few managers are helpful because they came from your position too. The benefits are the best I’ve had in my career also.

      Cons

      The upper management sucks. They send out memos nearly every week or so telling us to work a random overtime shift the week of. They’re like ghosts. Show up and shake your hand to pass out hams for Christmas or have a meeting about a 1% or 2% raise every other year. I’ve been here 5 years trying to move up with no success. I’ve tried contacting management about issues at the main office in Seattle. Phone numbers on the...

      Advice to Management

      Speak to random employees every now and then. Stop hiding in your offices and only talking to plant management and superintendents who put on a show for you when the hear you’re coming. Check on the night shift sometimes. They feel COMPLETELY neglected. The wage gaps between the positions are ridiculous. I know people who fall asleep while we’re working that make $21.00 per hour while I make $15 working my butt off. Look...
