    Pros

    Stable and very good leadership

    work you to the bone, need to be at a certain level to make good money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the lies about the people being their biggest commodity. In truth everyone in "operations" is viewed as a expendable. Stop promoting people based on who sucks up the most.

    Pros

    The stellar pro for Expeditors' employees is the no lay off policy and its health benefits. Those benefits should come in handy to the majority of the smokers.

    Cons

    Management. How many supervisors does one department need? Too many people just distributing work to others and not enough people doing actual work.
    Communication. Mixed messages, no communication from closed door meetings. Expectations change without you knowing it then get blamed for not knowing...
    Monthly branch meetings about the millions in revenue/profit yet desk level employees don't see a dime.
    There is a lack of is a lack of integrity and honesty despite it being part of the cultural values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees -- Throw them a bone. Lots of people are very dissatisfied as shown from the anonymous survey recently. Clarify your performance review/raises and administer them consistently and timely. Is it performance or responsibility based?
