    Pros

    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Trouble with outsourcing to India. Need for more resources instead of outsourcing the work to "Accountants" that don't know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Company moral is low in accounting due to a lot of outsourcing to India. The real trouble is that those who are left in accounting have to fix all the work that is done by the people in India, because if they aren't given step by step instructions for each thing they do, they will mess it up. So those that are left in the department are basically doing the work of all the outsourced jobs plus their own.


  8. The transition has been basically painless. kept our managers(not good) they will correct this i am sure!

    Pros

    Exel cares! They listen to the drivers! we will see if the changes promised will take effect. hey they really seem to want to work with us. compared to the last two companies running our place of business they are fantastic! i would recommend this company to all drivers to work for.

    Cons

    again third company to take our site over. they kept the managers. not a smart move! these five people have the i will take care of you if you take care of me attitude. the brown nosers here are protected while the others are not. they allow them to take breaks in the guard shack while others are working! i have seen spills covered up by these folks. wrecks covered up it goes on. one driver actually heard the managers talking about a "hit list" ( drivers they are trying to get rid of)

    Advice to Management

    site manager: replace your managers here! i don't want anyone to loose their job so place them else where! have a box to allow the drivers to anonymously let you know what is going on! SIR if you only knew! i enjoy working here very much! but it could be so much better!

    Pros

    Employees work very independently. Management is not involved in the day to day operations of the company. This company offers many "hiding spots" for those people who would rather hang out and collect a pay check.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership. The senior management is disconnected from reality when it comes to what is really happening inside the company. Management has never really worked in the field so when conversations occur this fact becomes very evident. The company culture has drastically changed due to buyouts and mergers. They continue to employee those people that should have been let go many years ago. They justify keeping people on payroll because they are a "nice guy" or someother BS reason. By doing this opportunities for advancement are nill.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved and act like you care. Get to know the employees along with the daily operations.
