    Pros

    Great work/life balance, office environment and culture. There is ample opportunity to move up in your current position or even move to different positions. Extremely low turnover, which speaks well for how the company takes care of its people.

    There is a also a good amount of diversity within the company’s corporate office. I’ve seen some other reviews stating otherwise, but from what I’ve seen at my time here those statements are not accurate.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change in certain areas, and the safety aspect while important, is a bit too emphasized for a corporate environment.

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

    Pros

    they pay well. total comp pkg was pretty good - salary, insurance, decent bonus, 401-k + 50% match

    Cons

    HA! where to begin?!? staffing # are up & down like a yoyo. mgt says "we can't predict what the needs will be." right. eliminating jobs in one area only to add in another. they call it "right sizing". others call it bs. other co.'s staff at a level where they don't have to "eliminate jobs". apparently some over-hire and have to compensate when mkt changes

    Advice to Management

    replace them all. other companies seem to be much more in tune with the rank & file who do the heavy lifting. other companies are much more supportive of taking initiative, taking educated risks, much better at empowering rank & file to make decisions & initiative on their own.
