Pros

- Een deel van het personeel is erg slim en toegeweid.

- hoe dramatisch de prestatie ook is, wegens het feit dat het een JV is zal het waarschijnlijk nooit sluiten.

- Some staff are very clever and very dedicated.
- No matter how dire the performance, due to the fact that it's a JV it'll likely never close.

Cons

- Absoluut geen uitvoerende strategie in EMEA.

- Bevelen komen van bovenaf (Amerikaans corporate HQ) waarbij geen meningsverschil wordt getolereerd.

- Geen ruimte voor lateraal denken.

- Personeel wordt over het algemeen gezien als uitvoerenden en niet als denkers, zelfs op senior management/directie niveau, laat staan degenen lager.

- Vertrouwen op outsourcing is een catastrofale fout.

- De HR afdeling doen... wel.. wat doen ze eigenlijk? Niets.

- Toewijding en kennis telt voor niets als het tijd is voor een ontslagen rondje; het gaat meer om wie je kent en hoe goed je naar ze hebt lopen oplikken.

- Pas op jezelf - want niemand zal dat voor je doen.

- HQ in EMEA is op een compleet idiote locatie in een klein stadje in het diepe zuiden van Nederland - niet, zoals je zou verwachten, in de logistieke hoofdstad van Europa, Rotterdam.

- Absolutely no executive strategy in EMEA
- Orders come down from the top (US corporate HQ) with no dissent tolerated.
- No room for lateral thinking
- Staff are generally viewed as executors and not thinkers, even at senior managerial / directorial level, never mind those lower.
- Reliance on outsourcing is a catastrophic mistake.
- The HR department does... well... what do they do? Nothing.
- Dedication and knowledge will count for nothing when it comes time for the redundancies to be handed out; it's more about who you know, and how comprehensively you have brown-nosed them.
- Watch your back - nobody will watch it for you.
- HQ in EMEA is in a completely idiotic location in a very small town in the very south of the Netherlands - not, as you would expect, in the logistics capital of Europe, Rotterdam.

    Pros

    Excellent training and you'll learn a lot about logistics/transportation. Good team of workers who are willing to work hard

    Cons

    At times your days can be long and you're a salary employee so you don't get paid overtime. Also you are NEVER allowed to have a friendly conversation during work hours...even if it isn't busy!

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees a little better so they don't mind the long hours
