Cons

Large size makes it difficult sometimes to be consistent across the country with policies and procedure
Promotions and advancement made on who you know and best qualified are often not given jobs. Good old boy network need to disappera
Nees to be more diversity with gender and ethic groups in all facets of the company which will allow continued growth. Entire senior management team is composed of good old boy network and one female.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think outside the box on nontraditional ways to improve workplace balance
Empower employee to redifine jobs and get rid of the old way of hiring and promotions that favor who you know and not ability.

    I worked at Swift Transportation

    Pros

    Lasting relationships with some co-workers.
    Great technology and equipment to get the job done. Better than average training programs. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Promotions are more by the good ole boys system and not merit based. The more capable of performing the more is expected of you with out being compensated for the extra work. Raises, when the company had them were not fairly given out.

    I have been working at Swift Transportation

    Pros

    The people in general are nice -

    Cons

    Everything changes - more things are added daily and there is never enough time to get things done. I work over 50 hours a week and I leave the office with tons of work that I have to catch up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many meetings that are just blah blah blah - never see your upper management see what you realy do as they only what things done. Can never set things up as needed as you are always working more than one job during the day.
