    Pros

    Fast paced. Learning environment. Friendly people. Bonuses can be great if everyone works hard and collects customer money.

    Cons

    Sometimes you can feel like you bust your behind, but If everyone else isn't doing the same thing the end of the year bonus may not be so great. Everyone is too busy to help so you sometimes have to figure things out on your own.

    I worked at C.H. Robinson Worldwide as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are very helpful and encourage each employee to do better. They do not put you down when you make a mistake. I made a couple and never was I told any negative feedback. Each person I knew there was willing to teach me something new if I asked or wanted too. They honestly pay attention to their employees who work hard, which many companies do not do anymore.

    Cons

    It is just stressful but it bearable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To breath and relax sometimes.

    I have been working at C.H. Robinson Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Great systems and advanced reporting set you up for success. Company is the leader of the industry. Majority of employees are in their 20's or early 30's. Very relaxed work environment. Some wear t-shirts, shorts, and sandals to work every day.

    Cons

    Work day starts at 7:00 and ends at 5:00. Long summer hours. Seems like management is concerned more about profitability and revenue than employee morale. Not much room for mobility within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee morale rather than profitability. People will be more focused and willing to make the company money if they feel like they are valued and compensated fairly.
