    It's a company that has no room for growth.

    Pros

    My coworkers and the way, that we get along.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides are, the raises in wages that the company presents, after Ceva has had a phenomenal year in the numbers. Which Ceva is owned by Investors and numbers are their main concern. Which I do understand totally that's the soul reason of owning a business is to profit.

    Lacking some operational support which makes it hard to sell certain products. But this seems to be a challenge for most freight forwarders.

    I have been working at CEVA Logistics full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good business practices and good middle management. Vision of local/regional management is clear and concise. Employee goals attainable at all levels, good advancement potential. Decent support from management and coworkers. Several resources available for training/learning at all levels.

    Cons

    Vision/strategy from upper management is nonexistent. EVP/VP/SVP level management changes often. Not a good sign from the desk level. Inter company entities often are not aware of one another. The lack of cohesion among "brands" is apparent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead. Have a clearly defined vision and communicate it! Stop restructuring just to relocate your problems. Allow the employees who perform well the opportunity to share in a bonus program.

    Pros

    Work in the Corporate Office. Decent facilities, great management structure, upper management is engaging and open to new ideas.

    Cons

    Owned by a equity group who is always focused on cost containment and running very lean. Challenging to keep up with customer demand and continually providing a high level of customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to spend money to make money. You can run too lean!

    Lots of talented people within a company lacking leadership and investment from ownership

    Former Employee - Director in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    CEVA has tremendous capability and a vast array of services that reach across the globe. This translates to lots of opportunities for growth and interesting career paths, especially for younger people. Benefits are solid, PTO is generous for salaried people. Many of the management team members I have met at CEVA are extremely smart and hard working.

    Cons

    CEVA has been owned by private equity too long. Investments in IT, training, and equipment have been squeezed too many years in a row. Achievement is largely due to herculean individual efforts. The bag of tricks (recapitalization, paying vendors slowly, no raises) is tapped out. It's tough to believe it will ever get better until the company is sold and new ownership can invest

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Apollo needs to either sell the company or invest for the long term. To quote Warren Buffett, treat it like a business and not an investment.
