I worked at Expeditors full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-You get to play dress up while doing nothing more then data entry.
-It's data entry nothing more or less so it doesn't take a ton of brain power

Cons

If you are a college grad looking for your way this is not the company for you. They will talk about the great programs they have to move you up but look around everyone that isn't a manager has heard the same thing.
The work is boring and really doesn't apply to any other company. What you learn there will stay there.
They talk about an incentive program, but then don't explain to you that you won't be a part of it until your in management, IE "our salaries will be a little lower then industry but we have a really nice bonus pool that you can get into."
They love to talk about culture, but in reality they put lipstick on a lot of pigs. Don't tell me a client needs to see me in a shirt and tie when I have someone next to me missing teeth and wearing leopard print shirts. My shirt and tie won't cover that up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look around if you want people to be motivated, let them share in the rewards of their hard work.

    Pros

    Good benefit, training, and mentorship. If you do well in this company, you can work in any company.

    Cons

    very straight, tight up, and army type environment. A lot of unspoken rules. compensation is always below market, coz' relatively good benefit. There is no HR, your supervisor/manager is basically the HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    while keep advocating internal promotion, may be considering actually doing it.. Remote access and flexible working schedule are pretty common, so try to catch up. Consider having a HR dept.
