I worked at Weyerhaeuser

Pros

Prof Growth Opps
Generally Hire very good "line-level" associates
Benefits and work environment are very good
Safety is highest priority, even in the office environment

Cons

In a cyclical industry, so layoffs are not uncommon
Not always looking for long term value in software development
Don't really understand how software development needs to work, still treat it like building they are building a widget.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Enter the 21st century when it comes to the way in which software can better be developed.

    I have been working at Weyerhaeuser

    Pros

    In the past there have been a lot of opportunities for new and different challenges. The real forest land assets owned by the company gives me hope for the future as the building market increases.
    More opportunities will be there for those that survive the tough economic times.

    Cons

    Severe reductions in the work force in the supporting organizations has created a very negative working environment. The cuts have come wave after wave leaving those that survive a feeling of continued uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If cuts need to be made, learn how to make the decision quickly, take the action needed swiftly too.
    Your employees have been told they are a great asset, start treating them as such
