-1st class global network. I email countries all over the world (i.e. South Africa, China, Brazil, etc.)
You get what you put in and some people dislike the work-life balance because they do not understand how to utilize our network to handle issues or get things done.Cons
Selling is the easiest part of the job. There are so many factors that come into play with international shipping that can go wrong and give an easy out for customers. US based customers are so used to FedEx or UPS that if one thing goes wrong they will no longer want to do business with you.
-Promotions should be given in reference to performance and not tenure within the company.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Love the atmosphere and the goals of the company. There is never a time that I felt our management team on all levels does not care about the company, the customer, and the employee.
-When implementing salaries for young professionals cost of living should factor in rent. The housing market in certain areas might be cheaper than others but rent is still high. Most young professionals are looking to rent and not buy houses so consider that as a factor when deciding salaries.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
