    Pros

    Open to new technology and business idea's.
    Shares information about the business with non core areas.
    C-Suit members are very easy to approach.
    Good place to intern.

    Cons

    Limited vertical mobility. Openings are generally filled from the outside and are not offered to internal candidates. People are seen as expenses rather than assets. Very low level of job satisfaction in general. VP level takes pride in "running thin" to make budget look good but causes a high level of burnout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Profits are good, EPS is high. These are great things for investors and bonuses. Good people are leaving and more will follow as the economy improves. People have turned the other cheek as many times as they can.

    J.B. Hunt - Transportation Manager Position - Field Office

    Pros

    The opportunity to work independently amongst your coworkers. The opportunity for bonuses and pay raises if the outside branch as a whole functions successfully. The opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company with a solid financial statement and longevity in the marketplace. Outlook for this company for continued future growth looks positive. Individual field branch structure allows for the will of the Director to determine unexpected, 'right-now', time off if necessary. Personally, in my branch, I had a very flexible Director.

    Cons

    Substandard appearance in knowledge of the 'brokerage' industry by executive management. Annual budgets are often overridden by executive management, thus causing unrealistic growth expectations for field branches. 24-hour on-call duty, which is expected to include any call from any of the 10, 20, 30, 40+ drivers per night, at any given time of the night, on a daily (including weekend) basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oversee, and visit, outside branches on a more regular basis. This is a good company to work for, but the corporate-level appearance within the outside branches can lead some to think that you don't really care about them. Also, I personally believe each 'field' new-hire should spend at least three days at the Corporate HQ, prior to their first day at their 'field' office, in order to 1) Learn the culture, 2) See who exactly it is they're working for, and most importantly 3) Network with peers.
