I have been working at Estes West
Pros – Strong carrier in midst of challenging environment. Strong level of latitude for sales persons. Numerous resources. Upper management group is forward thinking with new ideas and processes. Open door policy with immediate manager.
Cons – Inconsistent. Not always able to penetrate against other more respected carriers. Limited on-the job training. Overwhelmingly dependent on 3PL contributions. Ability to negotiate at lower level sales positions virtually does not exist.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your people at the lower levels of employment. Remove barrier that exists between upper management, lower level management, and rank-and-file employees. Also, remove barrier between operations personnel and sales. Both need each other to survive, so it is critical that both communicate consistently and effectively.

Cons – Mis level management was a joke no real advancement at lower levels making it very difficult to proceed for advancement
Advice to Senior Management – higher level manegment needs to see whats going on at the lower level poorly run at the terminal level
