Pros

Being my first job out of college, it helped me avoid many of the career pitfalls that I might have experienced later...because I went through them first at Expeditors.

Cons

From a clinical point of view, it's a pretty efficient model: Take smart, motivated young people. Fill them with promises of career advancement so that they'll work extremely hard and long hours (often illegally off the clock), pay them well below industry standard and then promote the very few based on favoritism...unconnected with their actual abilities. Truly the worst work experience of my life.

Advice to Management

The employees are the most important function of any service industry. When you treat them with the bare minimum of respect, pay the bare minimum wages, and then have a culture that expects to be thanked for it, you will only ever get middle tier employees which, unfortunately, may be all you need.

    Pros

    They give employees plenty of training opportunities. The compensation for the work is fair. It's great the provided bonuses around Christmas.

    Cons

    The company, or at least the office I worked in became more about efficiency/production than about it's most valuable resource, it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making your employee's feel like they are under a microscope. When they ask for help listen; don't say you should be able to do it because someone else can or does.
