    Pros

    The people are phenomenal. Most care deeply about their jobs.

    Cons

    Management. They are managing from a style that is long gone. It is a style from the 1970s at best. They berate and they belittle and never encourage thinking. In fact, they might even be afraid of those with more talent and do their best to prevent their rise. Sad, really, really, sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change. Change your direction. Change your style. Change.

    Pros

    its a paycheck, and the benefits are pretty good.
    They do have different vendors you can get discounts, such as apple products and phones.

    Cons

    Don't separate the A-Z movement of files

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone that is experience if you promote from within. Not just because they have been at the company for years. Management doesn't listen to employees. they basically have to have their front teeth pulled prior to listening. they are doing a dis-service to people that love to being a freight forwarder. If you are lazy and only want to do the minimum but then get yelloed at for doing more than required, you will love this place.

    Multiple opportunities from Customer Service rep to Senior Dispatcher. Keeping track of shipments from pickup to delivery. In touch with agents on both sides (pickup and delivery)
