    Pros

    Excellent training and growth opportunities. Supervisor cares and supports direct reports. Access and interaction with managers and directors. No lay offs.

    Cons

    Developers must wear professional attire at all times (suits, ties). No opportunity to work from home or anywhere other than headquarters.

    More of a "lifer" company for Logistics if that's your career path

    Pros

    Definitely one of the top players in the Logistics field. You can count on growing here if you work hard and that's the path you'd like to pursue. Diverse colleagues.

    Cons

    Work is rote and repetitive, company has a very traditional corporate top-down structure. Work culture is not innovative or fun in any way.

    Pros

    The company tries very hard to promote a positive corporate culture throughout the company by things like employee appreciation day and team outings. Also the company is a very large international firm which gives you exposure to working for a large corporation and other opportunities to pursue. The benefit package is pretty good compared to some competitors.

    Cons

    If you studied logistics or supply chain and have these grand ideas of practicing what you learned with a big picture outlook of the supply chain as a whole, you are sadly mistaken. You will sit in a cube doing mundane, monotonous, mindless work that leaves you utterly unsatisfied. You will work long hours without moving, mostly rework fixing something somebody else messed up. Any competent employee stays here a maximum of a year or two then moves on to something far better. Aside from all of this the pay is terrible.

    Pros

    Company picks up healthcare for your entire family right away. They like to promote from within instead of hiring outside. There is job security throughout whatever the economy is doing. They don't layoff a bunch of people in order to make more money. They corporate level really seems to care a lot about family and want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay for the industry. Supervisors and Managers micro manage often and will send you emails asking why you were away from your desk for any period of time. It also has the "Office Space" feel when you make a mistake because you will hear it from numerous supervisors on what happened. They are extremely email orientated and there is little communication via phone or in person because management wants to keep your replies to use against you down the road. Management doesn't want to add more employees to help with the workload because that would effect the amount of monthly bonus they will receive. Don't call in sick because it will be questioned and your work will not be completed. Don't think about being promoted because it likely won't happen unless you want to move to a different state.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what your employees do, help them when they struggle and need help. Talk to people instead of email all the time. Give part of the bonus pool to employees that continually shine.

    Pros

    Best place to have a career in logistics. Healthcare plan is the best i've ever had.

    Cons

    promote from within is good and bad. Tenure is the biggest indicator of success.
