Work here while you can, after Peter retires, this company will be bought out.

Pros

Expeditors pays for your transit pass that you can even use on ferries..

Cons

Management is currently going though an identity crisis and is schizophrenic about which direction to take the department. I wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to outsource our jobs to some third world county where they could pay their employees even less.

We used to build everything in house because we knew we could do it better than anyone else. Now we pay top dollar for software off the shelf and after two years of trying to implement it, realize that it doesn't fit our business needs and waste millions of dollars.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of just talking about the culture, live it!

    If you can't hack "The Culture", don't torture yourself. If you can, you will enjoy it here, possibly for a long time.

    Pros

    Consistent management, adherence to philosophy.

    Cons

    Inflexible vacation. You "get" to wear a tie everyday, regardless of what you do for a living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be competitive in the IT world, consider more flexible vacation and more vacation sooner in the career.

    Pros

    For those who identify with the strong corporate culture and are wiling to work very hard, there is unlimited opportunity in career growth.

    If you have the time and energy to commit to the company you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    It is a difficult place to balance work and the rest of your life. The work schedule is rigid and time off is limited.

    Careers of those who just want to be steady contributors can languish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate the current corporate culture and see if it still makes sense for the current generation of employees.
