    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, wide array of potential opportunities.

    Cons

    Seems to have an identity crisis since moving to Seattle. Supposedly the move was to attract younger talent, but they don't act like a company that wants younger talent. Location in Seattle is terrible; crime ridden, filthy area.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Good people in the trenches and in the field
    -Pretty new building in Seattle (but see cons)
    -People pull their weight
    -Good advancement opportunities if you are willing to relocate

    Cons

    -Below average pay and bennies for Seattle
    -Pioneer Square has gotten awful over the last 3 years. More the City's fault than W's, but employees are stuck with it.
    -Cube world and tight quarters are soul-sucking. Employees (well, not senior management, naturally) are stacked on top of each other. Privacy and ability to talk on the phone are non-existent.
    -Only when you leave do you realize how caustic the environment is. It's like you've been holding your breathe and you can finally exhale.
    -Plum Creek people did not integrate well.
    -Stock price has been in the dumps. Is this the market's vote on management?

    Advice to Management

    Time machine back to before the decision to move and go somewhere with more space and safer environment. Would Tacoma have been so bad?

    Pros

    Nice play to work before you are ready to retire. Pace is slower.

    They are not ready to change. Need newer project management tools, sprint development, let analysts lead more.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power to your staff. You’ll be surprised.
