I worked at BDP International for more than 8 years

Pros

Room for advancement in the company. Generally requires being noticed for the right reasons (being visible, hard work, accurate and efficient output) but being aligned with some powerful people in the company can come in handy (or being family - see Cons). Good to see some C level talent being brought in from outside the company. Good place to learn the industry, once you can see beyond the data entry. Quality HR personnel with best interest of employees (as well as the company, of course) in mind.

Cons

Cronyism at its finest. Family company with friends, neighbors, and their bookmaker at various levels of the hierarchy. Lacking knowledge sharing among divisions. Antiquated systems and training practices. Inconsistent processes around the company. Managers and Team Leads are too engulfed in transactional processes to truly manage their business. Pay scale and use of job titles also inconsistent throughout the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

BDP is said to be a global company. However, the level of segmentation around the globe gives the feel of different companies all operating under the BDP name. What happens in the Phila airport office, Baltimore, Chicago and Edison does not align with what is happening in the Corporate office. The disparity is more evident around the globe.
Additionally, take a look at your functional leadership teams - Managers, Team Leads, Station Heads - and ask yourself if they are in that role because of the job that they are capable of performing or do they hold that position because they grew up in South Philly and have been with the company for 20-30 years?
