I worked at Kuehne + Nagel

Pros

Its a good place to get valuable experince, and managment is really good about compromising with giving you time off when needed

Cons

Managment seems lost at times, the regular employess understand operations better than the main people in charge, they do not promote from with in, or when they do promote from with in, is some managment's cousin, or babysitter

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have good people workng for you, some not so good, recognize the better by work ethic, not just because they used to work with you at some other place.

    Pros

    Solid company, great IT, encouragement from management and outstanding support. I just started and saw that people have been there for a while are happy working there. This is a company that has no debt, cash surplus, and is ready to weather the storm ahead in 2009. Great choice of managers, knowleageble personel, and people that are happy working there. There are no wastes, company is frugal where it should be, and invests on where it should invest. It provides the support cusotmers needs, and does not have the arrogance of similar compatitors. Great place to work, in any office.

    Cons

    low starting salaries, that is all. You have to prove yourself before you can grow in the company. Oh, the name is hard to pro nounce, so if customers haven't heard of the company, we need to say KN instead of the full name. try to give the email address, XXX@kuehne-nagel.com Try spelling that over the phone when two people have accents! Because the IT is so spectacular, sometimes it might be slow, and that makes it hard to use all the sustem features. But then, IT support is also very good, so... It balances out at the end, so its ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    nothing, seems perfect so far...I haven't been there long enough to provide additional information, but so far, I have seen only good things, and every day I am more and more impressed with the benefits, with people, with the support, and the investment the company has made in the important aspects of the busienss.

    I have been working at Kuehne + Nagel full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to Grow, Worldwide Contacts & Relationships, Major Responsabilities Quickly, Great Place to Learn

    Cons

    Company isn´t focused in employee retention, constant change of personnel wears down the operation, processes and clients trust.
    Very political making decision longer and more complicated than they should
    Human Resources efforts to keep the personnel motivated leave very much to be desired as well as employee benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focusing in your personnel is an investment that will pay off in the efficiency of operations.
