    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits and office environment. Although old technology is still prevalent, there is a concerted effort to upgrade to new. As an IT person, there are lots of opportunities to learn and be involved with the entire development process.

    Cons

    The economy and poor management decisions by a previous regime has ravaged the company's finances. All non-union employees (me) suffered a 10% pay cut and then no raises in 7 years. The company appears to be recovering, but IT folks have other opportunities; turnover is high.

    Fast-faced, challenging, good pay & benefits. The people I work with are great.

    Cons

    Can be stressful...after all, it is the freight business. The hours are not the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Hearing "good job" and "keep up the good work" would be nice to hear from local management.
