    Pros

    Great company. Lots of exposure and a lot of opportunity!

    Cons

    I hear of other companies that truly reward their people for doing their jobs and more so. It seems often times here, once you start really doing well, they change something so you aren't paid as much and aren't as successful, to make you work harder for less...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish management had better visions towards rewarding hard working employees and wanting their employees happy and excited to come to work.

    Pros

    The experience over all is great, lots of things to learn, people is really nice overall.

    Cons

    Salaries are really poor compare to its competitors. Lots of work, lack of payment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are not very consistent with payment ranges. They usually wait untill the last minute to offer a better salary when it is already too late!

    Pros

    Many entry level positions for college students looking for first careers. Lots of growth potential. Tons of different departments to look into if you are undecided on what you want to really do. Flexible work scheduling. Upper Management/Directors typically all have open door policy and are great mentors. Over 1,500 people on campus so you can meet a lot of people and network.

    Cons

    Pay compared to similar positions at other companies in the industry is lower. Not a very profitable company so lay-offs, freezing 401k matching, not getting your annual pay raise and not giving out holiday bonuses happen quite often. Departments budgets are always tight so promotions typically only happen when someone leaves that position. Employees are always complaining about how much they get paid for the number of hours they work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give advise to lower level positions about options to grow and shadowing opportunities in other departments and areas.

    Pros

    You get weekends off (usually)

    Cons

    High management turnover, managers burned out then replaced, definitely a profit over people oriented organization, raises are rare, no rewards for your work (in logistics at least), cronyism and unethical behavior at high levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more incentives and rewards to employees, take away the obstacle course of KPIs in order to actually get a bonus

    stop adding additional tasks when none are taken away - adds more stress

    Pros

    Incredible and dynamic company in a very complex marketplace providing high tech logistics, distribution, mobility and 3PL services to 115,000 resellers. The company has many different career opportunities in various departments with much advancement and promotional opportunities based upon the abilities and merits of the individual. Great benefits package and work-life balance.

    Cons

    This company is not for the weak. With the proper attitude, skills and teamwork an individual can easily grow with the company.
