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.

    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

    Pros

    The people are Weyerhaeuser's best and only remaining asset. Not many of them left.

    Cons

    Everything I found attractive about this former Fortune 100 company is gone. 401k match - gone, decent health care plan - gone (replaced with high deductable plan), retirement medical benefits - gone, pension plan still in existance, but will be scaled back.

    The recent economic situation had hit Weyerhaeuser hard. Questionable decisions in the past to aquire another company was the beginning of the end. At this point, they have let most of the people go. All that remains is managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest you all keep your resume up to date as well.
