    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!

    I worked at Weyerhaeuser as an intern

    Pros

    Weyerhaeuser has a great internship program. They have multiple offices in Oregon and Washington that allow you to gain experience and a feel for the company. Many offices will allow you to work over Christmas and spring break if you want to work.

    Cons

    You may have to relocate and may be in different locations each summer.
