Pros: ability to work both independently and in team environments
Cons: culture change needed to bring operation to world class
Fast paced manufacturing operation where troubleshooting, engineering, people skills and time management are tested on a daily if not hourly basis. A typical day consists of optimizing day to day operations, with a heavy focus on safety and environmental compliance. In addition, long term planning, corporate goal alignment and cost cutting are at the fore front of most project work. Throughout my 12 years with Weyerhaeuser I have learned to set priorities, work within allotted budgets and push for change that will drive down costs and increase reliability.
