    Pros

    Good team to work with that are committed to success. Company rewards good performance at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Similar to other large companies benefits have been significantly reduced over the last few years, such as having to use your personal cell phone for work.

    Advice to Management

    Benefits have been reduced too much without an increase in compensation to offset. Most mid to low level salary employees have consequently experienced a reduction in total compensation.

    Pros

    Has been a good company to work for. Do not like the direction the CEO is taking this company to. Will probably not be around in 20 years.

    Cons

    Use to be a balance of a people and business company. As with most companies it is now all about the large share holders.

    Pros

    There are no Pros to this company.

    Cons

    Very hard company to work for. They don't care about you or your family. They will come in shut you down then dont give you your vacation pay that is yours for at least a month and the severence they promised for 2 months. How do the expect people to live?? They don't care.

    Advice to Management

    Remember you weren't alway a manager. Care more for the people making you the money. Specially to the CEOS of the company.

    Great work hours, and good co workers.

    Cons

    It's the paper industry. It's not exactly growing anymore. Being sold to Nippon. Who knows what the future will hold for us.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, hours, and time off. Everyone is willing to help out with tasks and teach you new things. 401k is 50 cents to every dollar up to 6%. 2 weeks paid vacation for the first 2 years then goes up every few after that. Cant speak much for the other benefits as I do not use them. I get a lot of good experience here as far as maintenance goes.

    Cons

    Safety is beaten into your head big time. Its an over kill some days. I get that safety is something to take seriously and a lot of folks do, but they do not have to go to the extreme like they do. I guess that's why they are one of the safest companies to work for. Also, cant borrow against your 401k with the company matching. Also, I hired in as an electrician and hardly touch wires. Its mostly millwright work, like a 90/10 percent. the vision is to make everyone a multicraft.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating the lower level guys good and you will have good quality guys sticking around for a while.

    Pros

    Federal Way location, have spent most of my career at Weyerhaeuser. Used to be a great company that valued long time employees.

    Cons

    Moving HQ to Seattle is the worst plan ever. "To attract up and coming talent" they say. They treat long time employees like crap now and are pushing us out the door. Shame on management!

    Advice to Management

    You weren't always management, take a step back and learn how to value employees again.
