Pros

Good experience, lots of jobs and different directions to go, great intl job possibilities. good job growth potential and learning available.

Cons

Politics. run by consultants, don't konw how to run a business for profit, only by the numbers and metrics. Dictate to management how to manage, not major decisions left to the P&L owners. Commission structure in US sucks! It promotes lazy behavior every other year...and when it's GP based, and sales has no control over GP...it's hard to motivate Sales!

Advice to Management

Let the P&L owners generate GP however they see fit. As long as they generate enough GP...then who cares how they get there. Get sales on the road. make getting commission as easy as possible and stop letting the customer service people go...they make the company money!!

    Pros

    Global company with name recognition providing all freight forwarding and 3PL services with plenty of career opportunities to move up and move around if desired.

    Cons

    Behemoth company where most employees are a number working tirelessly to ensure more revenue is being generated than what is being lost to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your customers or they will go away.
