    Pros

    Great senior level leadership with open door policy. Supports entrepreneurial spirit. Opportunities daily for growth personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Work life balance can sometimes become an issue and stress management if you do not have proper outlets established outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Make sure to continue pulling instead of pushing. Continue to retain top level talent.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and very casual dress are both nice. The benefits are decent though not extraordinary by any means. Start with decent pto time.

    Cons

    Very little and expensive parking and an over crowded office. Not a lot of professional development opens and a low ceiling for job growth as well.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more empathetic while you're busy jerking that eye on the bottom line. Also, train managers to manage. Sore may be good at budgets and pushing financial objectives, but have really poor people skills.

    Great people, strong company with great investment returns, many opportunities available to learn about industry and advance your professional experience

    Have strict processes in place for new hires so your employees don't waste time training new hires that turn out to be failures.

    Pros

    Good building, knowledgeable coworkers, managers are usually available to talk to if needed. They do a lot of events for the employees and occasionally provide food.

    Cons

    The development uses a waterfall methodology, meaning that either devs have nothing to do, or QA has nothing to do. Devs often find themselves with no tasks, or if they do have tasks, there's no requirements given to them. Sometimes devs are given a behemoth of a task to finish, and have to do it within a time crunch because the team doesn't have enough QA people. There's a lot of old, messy legacy code to work with here. One of the main applications is running on code written by outside contractors in the mid-2000s, and will never be rewritten because it would take too much time. Pray that you're not the employee who is the sole owner of this codebase. Devs are required to be in an on-call rotation. There are nearly a hundred support tickets coming in from the users daily, which speaks to a lack of scalability of the underlying code and hardware. The production release process is needlessly complicated and takes weeks to be approved. You have to put in the change request before the code is even finished.

    Advice to Management

    Switch to agile entirely, and quickly. Ditch the legacy code. Reinvent the release process.

    Pros

    Hired right out of school from on campus recruiting, great training and industry introduction before even hitting the sales floor, decent pay (I thought it was low at the time though), young sales floor, high energy atmosphere, different customers every day with repeat business too, best company in the industry to work for (biggest and baddest) -- low supervision once you're on your feet and holding your own

    Cons

    Huge company leading to push up or out, extremely flat organization, industry in general (uncovered freight due to capacity even if it's priced high), you can do your job perfectly but the carrier can mess it up/ miss the pickup/drop times (industry)

    Advice to Management

    Add sales managers (started to after I was leaving) - accept your millennials advise and continue to improve the company/ move it forward instead of just "if it aint broke don fix it" attitude -- once again starting to do that now with acquisitions and expansion outside of brokerage
