It's a bad economy, but you owe yourself better.

Quality Assurance Specialist (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros-few work overtime.
-depending on your role, failure to meeting goals has no consequence.
-downtown location
-you get to play dress up everyday.
-you won't have to worry about keeping your skills up to date.
-free bus pass
-health insurance is covered by employer (but your salary reflects this)

Cons-No career growth
-No mentoring or skill building
-Incompetent managers are in charge of delegating work.
-The majority of talented people leave within 3 years- management will just say "It's not for everybody!" - it apparently isn't for about 30% of the QA staff, the turnover rate is outrageous, yet the problem is always squarely pegged as a "bad hire".

Advice to Senior ManagementRewards productivity and achievement, nuture growth and mentoring. Implement what outside consultants advised. Be more flexible with time off, increase vacations and make the salaries more competitive.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not an ideal place of work for experienced IT/IS employees

    (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Expeditors


    Pros: Good benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision coverage). Fully paid Bus pass (for commuting on Metro and Sound Transit). Option to buy company stock at a… Cons: No opportunity for growth for most employees. No system of annual raises. Employees can go for years without receiving a raise.
