I have been working at Diakon Logistics full-time for more than a year

Pros

Very fair and professional. Never will they ask you to do something that isn't in your best interest. Teams are incentivized and it pays to do a good job.

Cons

Clients can be demanding and if you don't please Mrs. Jones you will not do well.

    I worked at Diakon Logistics

    Pros

    As an employee you are stretched to your max performance level. This became a pro, in a way, because I discovered that I was capable of doing more than I was aware of.

    Cons

    Over worked and underpaid, unprofessional management, poor work conditions, extremely high level of stress, little room for advancement, unrealistic expectations on employees, long hours, dishonest leadership,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine appropriate expectations for each employee based on their environment. For example, did you place them in a quite office? Or, did you throw them into a cesspool pool of employees where everyone is expected act as receptionists and managers while blocking out tons of distractions and completing their own jobs at the same time?

    Management that disrespects the client, disrespects the owner/operators and performs dishonestly should be replaced.

    Don't expect employees to perform outside of their position without compensation.

    I have been working at Diakon Logistics full-time

    Pros

    The salary is decent in this economy and there are some nice perks like the auto allowance and selecting your own staff.

    Cons

    The client interferes with and basically runs your operations, then steps back when things go wrong. There is little support from corporate in this respect.

    This is very unfortunate for managers because Diakon uses responsibility accounting to evaluate performance. The problem is that they company does not distinguish between controllable and uncontrollable revenues and costs when doing so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage honesty in the monthly ops report. Follow up on problem indicators within that report. Support the location managers. When the client is difficult, don't hold your managers accountable for costs that are out of their control.
