    I worked at England Logistics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of my very best friends were found while working here. This seems to be a consistent theme of all reviews of England Logistics. That's because that is usually the one bright spot that can be found in the day to day drudgery of this place. I will say that I did learn (the hard way) that no one else is looking out or cares about my career but me. This has assisted me in the time since I left there. I learned that I need to control my own fate because I am the one person truly invested in my career.

    Cons

    As referred to in the title of the review, EL is like a Venus Flytrap: very pretty when you look at it from afar, but if you get too close, it traps you and crushes you until you have no life left. I have seen too many people come into the environment, full of life and hope for the future, only to be torn down by unattainable goals and managers who lack the skills to properly mentor employees. Employees are expected to work long hours with no extra compensation or even positive reinforcement for a job well done and told that hiring extra help is unnecessary. I slaved for years under the assumption that I was a team player, only to realize that I was actually just a really cheap mule. It wasn't until I left and worked for a company that actually cared about employee welfare that I realized that all that EL worried about was money and not employees. Employees hired during the recession have been brain washed into thinking that they have to stay with the company because there is nothing else better out there, when, in fact, there are a lot of great companies out there looking for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about getting rid of cancerous employees. Employees don't become cancerous on their own. They have to get it from somewhere. Feelings of resentment and mistreatment are what breed cancer. Please think of the root causes of the cancer (hint: IT ISN'T OTHER EMPLOYEES). Think about the fact that many of the reviews on Glassdoor are negative and that MANY of the ones that are positive are the ones that you have asked to be written. Lead, don't control. Hire more people to do the work instead of draining your current employees. If your employees feel like they HAVE to work more than 40 hours or they will be fired, you have done something wrong. No one should have to work into the night to get a job done on a regular basis or have to take work home with them consistently. It should be the exception and not the norm. You have the best possible employees working for you but they feel like they are under-appreciated and over-worked. Losing great people (managers and above) on a regular basis and not letting them say goodbye to their co-workers is demoralizing to everyone. One final note - employees won't be honest in "anonymous" surveys because they are afraid that nothing is anonymous anymore. More than one employee has been burned in the past by being honest in a so-called anonymous survey. If you want a truly anonymous survey, good luck. You are scared of the truth and people are scared to give it to you.
