    I worked at Temple-Inland

    Pros

    The office culture, while conservative was very friendly and family-oriented. Most employees worked with the company for over 20 years. Great place to learn the ropes.

    Cons

    While compensation was fair, it was a bit on the low end of the range.

    Pros

    Good safety record. People are good to work with.

    Cons

    if you are low man on in the union you must cover all the vacation of the other union guys too much overtime excessive hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Union needs to scale people to there skill level not just keep them the same.

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I needed a job and they had one. When you're in need of a paycheck you can't be choosy. Well, I needed a paycheck so I wasn't choosy.

    Cons

    See above, it's much easier to discuss what the benefits were and assume all else was a con. Working for Inland was a pleasure much in the same way herpes isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has been acquired so there isn't really much to say here.

    Pros

    Pays well and that's about it.

    Cons

    Highly negative atmosphere, biased and lord knows don't get hurt or they'll turn on you like a pack of hungry wolves. encourages employees to not seek medical care if hurt at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the difference between hard work with a desire to achieve and self selling narcissism. Value your employees and stop going around safety.

    I worked at Temple-Inland

    Pros

    Company culture was one of encouraging individual growth and support.

    Cons

    The business decision to consolidate multiple, un-related lines of business proved to be more challenging and resulted in the firm's financial issues. I believe the company was divested and sold.

    I worked at Temple-Inland full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a great experience learning and growing in the internal audit department and learning a manufacturing setting. Company was lean and experienced.

    Cons

    The company was acquired by a larger competitor so it is unknown what could have been if TIN would have acquired others, was able to exit unprofitable business lines, and avoid the acquisition.
