I have been working at XPO Logistics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Culture is very cool, lots of young people, there is always something you can learn and each and every day which is exciting.

Cons

100+ cold calls a day, Not a job for everyone, frustrating in the aspect that you will get people who don't want to talk to but you must stay poised.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to offer more money for the Chicago department, this is not Charlotte there is a much higher cost of living here

    Pros

    Exciting growth opportunity. The place is growing fast and this will create opportunities for motivated employees.

    Cons

    Poor pay, crap insurance, long hours, little vacation, no stock options. Unrealistic expectations by some in senior management, and there seemed to be a reluctance to promote from within. A fair amount of office politics for a start up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not going to award employees stock options, then you need to pay them a higher percentage of their bonus. Improving the health insurance and vacation time could be a low cost way to improve moral at a low cost.
