    It used to be a really good company but since the Private Equity firms bought Univar, it has not been a good experience.

    Pros

    The company still values and treats the customer as royalty which is the key to the success of the company. The employees are still hard working and care immensely about the company and their coworkers.

    Cons

    The company expects more and more from their Full Time Employees without adequate compensation. They pay their contractors and consultants an enormous amount of money, while giving their FTE's the minimal in compensation increases. Their big ERP Project is costly and inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate the employees fairly and stop expecting them to work 60-80 hour weeks.
