I have been working at Expeditors

Pros

Expeditors takes great pride in their people which they consider their most valuable asset. Their corporate culture is second to none.

Cons

The work can get very monotonous and its common to work til six or seven at night for all levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I believe the leadership at Expeditors is strong, they are very patient and supportive. Management will work with you to be able to work the system properly.

    Cons

    - no room for growth

    - maternity leave is too short
    - low balls pay
    - integrity is not observed here when people play blame games
    - some mid management micro-manage and could take a management class on how to work with employees
    - too many rules here, it seems that people have to watch their backs with what they do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    people should think twice before coming here to work.

    there are depts that are far more conservative than others. saw a few too many promoted that did not deserve it and others that do deserve it- they get overlooked because of nepotism/brown nosing.

    IS dept is too corrupt and a very high turn over rate. some mid management people need to learn how to observe their team members. (insert favortism here)

    other depts after observing, have it worse. some depts dont have any growth because people are so comfortable with their jobs for 10+ years. so the younger generation, start looking elsewhere, there is no such thing as growth here. oh and pay, it's insulting.

    this is an old school company, i suggest that upper management take some time and talk to their employees and see what they really think. a lot of people leave because of this negligence.

    I have been working at Expeditors

    Pros

    Company is very stable and secure. Never made any layoffs in over 30 years. Benefits package is decent, which includes transportation to work.

    Cons

    All male employees must wear a tie, even the developers who never see clients. When you get a promotion, no raise comes with it. Many supervisors and managers seem to be yes-men. Explanations of why new policies have been introduced are extremely poor. Lots of smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Question your own managers before unleashing these absurd new policies to your departments. Promote people who are able to communicate well.
