Pros

It's a great company for developers who don't want pagers or much stress from meeting project timeline. The company is very eager to adopt cutting edge technologies which gives you a lot of opportunities to grow.

Cons

Less than average pay rate. All decisions, related to technologies, are made by senior managers who don't know what they are doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please hear what people say.

    Pros

    No-lay off policy. Great benefits. Merit based promotions. No company debt. Knowledge & experience opportunities - international logistics, customer service, accounting, all around business exposure. Most employees that have worked for Expeditors for 3 years tend to stay.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment with high expectations for operations personnel. Systems development is slow and can be frustrating. If you can "do your time", sacrifice & endure the long hours, it could pay off but I have seen multiple good employees burn out before that point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees before they burn out. Vacation coverage could use improvement so employees don't have to work twice as long when they get back to catch up.
    Great job on the employee benefits and stability. No debt, cash in the bank - is extremely admirable and a great example to other companies & government institutions.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, having a job.

    Cons

    Low pay, commute into downtown, management is a joke (sometimes you aren't even sure who you are reporting to), little recognition, little employee appreciation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO is known to say "employees are our biggest asset", but they sure don't back that up very well. It is nice to have benefits, but this is definitely reflected in your lower-than-average salary. This company is stuck in the past and acts like its a good thing. If it wasn't illegal, you would expect to see managers with their feet up on their desks smoking a cigarette. Business professional for an entire CHQ population that never sees a customer. No advancement opportunities. High turnover. The only employees with a long tenure are complacent complainers, who don't want to make an effort to go anywhere else, or upper management and executives who tell glorified stories of "in the beginning." Hey guys, its not 1980 anymore.
