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

    Pros

    I worked at the corporate headquarters for over 16 years. The team that I worked on was excellent. My immediate leadership was responsive, flexible and supportive. Weyerhaeuser allows immediate leadership quite a lot of autonomy. While this can make for tremendous differences from business function to business function, it empowers leaders to support their employees as the employees support the businesses. I also have the opportunity to have several varied and different jobs/careers during my time there. If you are someone who likes to make career changes and seek new challenges, there are opportunities to do so.

    Cons

    In 2016, the company moved their Corporate Headquarters to the armpit of downtown Seattle, known as Pioneer Square. The commute combined with the location (we were told it's a neighborhood in "transition") makes working for the corporate region of Weyerhaeuser less than a one-star rating for this review.

    Advice to Management

    DUMP DOYLE!

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good company. People development.

    Cons

    Leadership change and off goes a few businesses. Acquisitions moves turn into layoffs for many loyal and dedicated employees.

    Keep people that have the talents and skills to thrive at your company.

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

    Pros

    The new location in Pioneer Square is terrific. For the wrong reasons (saving money) they are willing to push people fast and high.

    Cons

    WY's employee philosophy is to hit just below the 50% mark in every conceivable way. Pay slightly less, have slightly sub-par benefits, and value employees only to the extent you can get a lot out of them for little investment.

    Advice to Management

    Create a genuine HR function, and allow that expertise to permeate across the company.

    Pros

    They care about their employees
