    Pros

    Opportunities are there for those who want to work for them. Culture and environment is not for everyone, but people who fit in stick around for the long haul.

    Cons

    Generally a results driven company but there is some waste in some areas and occasional bad managers that don't know how to hold their people accountable. These are few and far between though.

    Pros

    The culture, the Expeditors family, the work ethic, the professionalism and the culture of limitless potential. There is strong leadership and a true open door policy. We are our harshest critic on all fronts and we set high expectations for ourselves (and from our customers) and are focused on exceeding them daily.

    Cons

    Great place for a career not for a job. We work hard, but play hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the place a place of limitless potential.

    Pros

    Talk about having the golden ticket. Don't be fooled, you will work hard, very, very hard. However the opportunity and reward come back ten fold. This company puts their money where their mouth is, they're interested in talent and they do all they can to recruit and keep it. Managers are there to encourage and support you through your journey, your team members become your second family, and the possibility of promotion and financial gain is an absolute reality for those who want it. Sure, there's always some corporate BS and nepotism, you'll never find a company without it, but I think Expeditors is a class act for their size and industry.

    Cons

    The company focuses on recruiting from college so the bulk of the staff is young kids, first job out of college. If they aren't seasoned to the workforce it can be quite a shock, maybe feelings of entitlement. Things won't be handed to you, but they're all there for the taking if you're willing to put the work in and have a good attitude. If not however you can be left behind which some people feel is unfair. There's always a heavy ratio of male to female managers, would be better to see more women in positions of senior management locally. Occasionally the dress code becomes a bit ridiculous, but I prefer having one too strict than one that is too transparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are always shining stars, try to focus on those that don't burn as bright. See what you can do to make them feel just as crucial to the team and that they too have potential.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time

    Pros

    They make it easy to join the team at expeditors. From the minute you walk in you are guided through hands on learning in a very team oriented atmosphere. Everybody at expeditors is hard working, but there still exists a fun and exciting culture.

    Cons

    It can be easy to feel lost at such a large company, especially one spread throughout so many countries. At times it can be challenging to work together with some many people spread thought the world, but we have the tools and people to make it work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more classes about the different operations throughout the business and the industry, how the company works on an operational level.

    Pros

    Challenging work for to keep you intrigued. Great opportunities for advancement but you have to "drink the kool-aid" and really believe in what they company stands for.

    Cons

    Long hours, not the greatest pay in the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that the employee feel appreciated, with a wavering economy and employees being expected to cover multiple desks it makes moral very low.
