Pros

I worked for TNT for over 15 years and developed many friendships. Most of the people there are great people.

Cons

Management doesn't care about employees any more. They only care about shareholders. Benefits have been greatly reduced in the last 10 years. Everything is about cutting expenses, cutting expenses, cutting expenses. A lot of dead weight at Northern. If you want a job where you don't want accountablility then Northern is the place. The good workers have to make up for the dead wieght and get burnt out.

Advice to Management

Think about your people, not about yourself and shareholders. Your people are the ones that are the company. Make people accountable.

    Awesome Team to work with. - Health Benefits is good.

    Cons

    I didn't have any idea about salary. Salary - Not that great. Got to know only after started working. My friends are getting paid by 20% more. So whoever read this, negotiate well.

    Pros

    Work life balance Good place for semi-retirement if that's what you want Good place if you are willing to leverage your connections to big money Its conservativeness will keep it out of big trouble but also miss big opportunities

    Cons

    Highly political Must be a networking cheerleader to succeed Very PC Consensus style drives very slow decision making Challenging established thinking is punished Management is out of touch with the market and the workers Pay is low relative to the market but they don't ask for much either Mediocrity is abundant -no surprise given the rest Avoid if you are ambitious or action-oriented

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example -take your cuts first
