    Pros

    There are many talented and knowledgeable employees. It's a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    The company has been going through quite a bit of change and is not equipped or skilled at managing all the change. Although there are several talent leaders and managers, there are a few bad managers that do not care about the employees.

    I have been working at C.H. Robinson Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, work-hard, play-hard, results-focused with lots of autonomy. The people and culture inside the walls make it a pretty awesome place to work.

    Cons

    No major cons - the compensation model is great for long-term, stable growth but turn-over and competitiveness in the job marketplace should cause CHR to review their model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more in line with expectations.
