    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Dallas, TX

    I worked at CEVA Logistics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Moving up through the company was very easy, however, pay seems to be below market wages. I received 3 promotions in 1 year and each time was unimpressed with the offers, especially when comparing them to other companies doing the same job.

    Cons

    Pay seems to be slightly under market. They hire you for a position and then add on more and more responsibility, without compensation. Everything seems like a secret between management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for. If you want people to take you and your company seriously, take your employees seriously. Manage the talent you guys currently have better than you currently do.

    Former Employee - Operations Supervisor in Mount Juliet, TN
    Former Employee - Operations Supervisor in Mount Juliet, TN

    I worked at CEVA Logistics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a supervisor: consistent pay, average insurance, most hourly associates are grateful.

    Cons

    As a supervisor: no training, management/leadership directives are inconsistent and often unobtainable, management team is inordinately tense, curt, and somewhat unprofessional, co-leaders are too busy to offer advise and OJT, human resources is completely consumed by damage control culture, hourly employees are treated with disdain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement effective training for new supervisors and regular performance tracking - don't wait until performance review period and blind side them with short falls at that time.

    Pros

    There is vast exposure to a lot of different functions and experiences. Benefits are good and pay is about average.

    Most salaried personnel work long hours and are under a lot of stress. Because of high turnover it can be difficult to get consistent service and support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training and support.

    Pros

    Large global company with many opportunities for advancement (in corporate) if you push.
    Very flexible schedule, but that is dependent on direct supervisor and business needs.
    Good benefits.
    Good feeling of being part of a team.

    Cons

    Poor IT support.
    No formalized training.
    Fewer opportunities for advancement in the filed. (non-corporate)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better IT support and solutions. There have been so many cuts to IT it's felt at desk level and eventually will impact customer. (in some cases it has already)

    Pros

    Many hours and decent pay if you don't mind working weekends. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Poor management, did not utilize employee's with secondary education even after tuition was reimbursed, bad reputation from how past/current employees were treated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Biggest waste in the company is not utilizing the employees who you helped pay their way through college. Absolutely no development program offered.

    Pros

    Some long time customers who are great.

    Cons

    Pay is not good at all, most of the management and people are unprofessional. Health insurance goes up every year. No sick pay; everything is lumped under PTO. Can't keep employees which makes work loads larger for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of loyal employees who have been there 5+ years. Pay people what they are worth when you know they are a great worker. Get rid of unprofessional management who lie and are not fair.

    I worked at CEVA Logistics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent for the type of work. A lot of good people work there and the team mentality is higher than most places. Good benefits and a lot of additional training is available, even out of your job classification.

    Cons

    I got downsized along with 7-8 others all on the same day due to the combining of two locations. Ironic that the combining never took place and the person who initiated it is no longer with the company. The hours were crazy at times, you might work 2 or 3 different shifts a week as need arose. Hard on the family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance needs to be more of a priority in today's world.
