I have been working at C.H. Robinson Worldwide full-time (more than a year)

Pros

- Amazing management that believes in helping to advance careers
- Majority of the promotions come from with the company
- Very competitive salaries and amazing benefits
- Extremely unique set of challenges in terms of the type of work done
- Many career growth and continuing education opportunities
- Promote team work and cross department cooperation
- Co-workers are more like friends and family, people that you truly care about

Cons

- Work-life balance is promoted on the surface but very difficult to maintain in reality because in order to succeed work needs to come first always
- Very fast paced and at times stressful work environment
- Difficult to break into management circle if that is the career track desired
- There are at times a lot of gossip because of the friends and family nature of co-workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall this is an amazing company to work for and I inspired everyday I come to work. There are a ton of great opportunities that work promote career and personal advancement. The only downside is it is hard to have a properly balanced life as the work environment is very fast paced and requires complete dedication of ones personal and work life. However, I believe the rewards are worth the trade off. I would suggest opening up the management circles are others to have an opportunity to advance down that path. It seems to kind of be a friends club where promotion in the upper circles seems to be based on who you know and not what you.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere, good introduction to various phases of business.

    Cons

    Long hours, high stress as you get more experience. Bonus incentives don't necessarily correspond with how hard you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base pay is low. Offices aren't going to grow in revenue every year (especially in today's economy) and this is what bonus incentives are partially based on....branch goals should be more reasonable to attain a consistent bonus.

    The office I was at lacked structure and consistency. My job title was always changing

    Pros

    Fast paced. Stable industry. This company is the industry leader, so brand recognition is unrivaled

    Cons

    Pay not very industry competitive without commissions. Little stability in job title. I could never get comfortable with what management expected of me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep people in the same position for long enough to get comfortable.
