    Kind of a time warp..... One of the biggest in the industry but behind the times.

    I have been working at Panalpina full-time (more than 5 years)


    There is great flexibility in arranging one's hours. Hmm what they say and what they do... well which side of their mouth do they want to speak from???


    The organization is working to go paperless. However, there are LAYERS of redundancy wherein one is required to re-enter the same data multiple times. This creates an opportunity for errors and way too much file handling. There are long time employees clinging to the former ways of doing business. I am talking about 25-30 year employees attempting to block forward progress b/c it causes them to be uncomfortable. Deadwood is the word that comes to mind here. I get it that their experience is so valuable but the lack of flexibility and adapting to new more efficient ways of work is just bogging the entire organization down. This is 2014 not 1975. Let's get away from using crayons and brown paper bags.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As Larry the Cable Guy said "Stay on the porch if you cannot run with the big dogs". Integrate the programs to "talk" to each other and productivity will soar. How demoralizing to have to be a mutant simply re-entering the same data repeatedly... the employees are begging for some help. Productivity would be so much more but entirely bogged down in minutiae. The Big Cheese does not want to work like this... why would anyone else want to?? Come work in the trenches and see if you can hang... I am not a male nor am I Swiss, nor childless... therefore my opportunities to advance are pretty much nil.... you missed out people.
