    I have been working at C.H. Robinson Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, fair compensation, leadership looks out for interest of its employees. The Office has a great teamwork feel. Co-workers often ask to help out if they are caught up on their tasks. management will help you move forward with your career if they seem opportunities that might fit your abilities and career goals

    Cons

    Workload is what is expected although at times it can seem heavier than what should be expected. Heavy phone volume, and some of the people you talk to on a daily basis can be very rude.

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

    Pros

    The Culture is unique and very attractive. Management I've worked under has been open to opinions and career development. Work ethic and ability to adapt and learn allows you to show value quickly.

    Cons

    The bonus potential is what is sold as the lucrative opportunity, however the ability for any individual office to grow 15% year over year is difficult to achieve, even with top performing employees and management.

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code, wear whatever you want, nice managers

    Cons

    Call center. The phone never stops ringing, to the point where it is impossible to get the work you came to do done. Low starting salary and hard to move up in the company as many people have worked a long time to get where they are. A lot of stressed out, angry, swearing people in my department.

    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.

    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.
