    Excellent Employer and knowledgeable Management

    Senior Logsitics Analyst (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGreat place to work....With little management input. Few team building, but lots of projects.

    ConsVery little training available.Hard to make a real impact. Employees are driven, but hard to excel in one area of expertise. Did many projects, with little imput from managers, till
    you come to reporting findings.
    Had a great director, who was always available for questions. Very busy, and had too many reports to be a great manager. But excellent communicator.
    Lots of change management, and lean management studies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick and choose studies, and lean management projects. Too many starts, and not enough success. Takes away from everyday work. Less stress on cost savings, and project completion.
    And more rewards for job, closer to what employee is hired to do!

    Would have stayed there rest of my life had my home life not changed

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Carthage, MO

    ProsBenefits! Time off, great culture towards safety. I would have stayed until retirement had I not met my wife to be and moved out of state due to her having an even better job than I had.

    ConsThe people there really didn't appreciate how good they had it, seemed people became spoiled considering this was one of this best paying jobs in the area. Some programs where beat to death and others lacked proper training. I remember my supervisor giving me a task that had to be done on the computer, they had been given training on doing this and yet they didn't know what to do and expected me to even though I hadn't 'officially' gotten training as they had. This kind of thing happened often sadly.
