    The people at expeditors are the real differentiator.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey make it easy to join the team at expeditors. From the minute you walk in you are guided through hands on learning in a very team oriented atmosphere. Everybody at expeditors is hard working, but there still exists a fun and exciting culture.

    ConsIt can be easy to feel lost at such a large company, especially one spread throughout so many countries. At times it can be challenging to work together with some many people spread thought the world, but we have the tools and people to make it work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be more classes about the different operations throughout the business and the industry, how the company works on an operational level.

    An awesome ride so far!

    Product Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsOpportunities come to those which rise to seize them.
    Great company; you do get what you put in to working here, with patience and hustle.
    (The key is hustle, and to do it with consistency and modesty in itself and nothing will go unnoticed by others)

    ConsNot any real cons out there other than the standard bad business decisions one sees at offices from time to time, but that's business anywhere. No way to learn without a business or its leaders/people taking a knock from time to time.

    Great place to work if you like working hard!

    Management Trainee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsChallenging work for to keep you intrigued. Great opportunities for advancement but you have to "drink the kool-aid" and really believe in what they company stands for.

    ConsLong hours, not the greatest pay in the beginning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that the employee feel appreciated, with a wavering economy and employees being expected to cover multiple desks it makes moral very low.
