    Pros

    The people are nice and friendly. Especially non management personnel. Some of the management will listen to ideas and take an interest in their employees.

    Cons

    Some of the management does not take an interest in its personnel. They concern themselves with meeting goals and making a profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more on making the employees happy

    Pros

    Overall good people to work with. The healthcare benefits were great. I did learn a few things related to my job. A few fun employee outings.

    Cons

    Branch was technology illiterate. They did not value their IS people as they saw them as a cost and a hurt to their bonuses. The IS management of that area were all about roadblocks and wanted you to take the same path in your career as they did. The branch management used negative reinforcement more than positive, constantly mentioning the possibility of layoffs and would treat you like a child instead of an educated adult that has talent to offer. Promised me lots of career opportunities then told me I couldn't explore those opportunities once I started so fast, had to wait and jump through hoops first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value technology, value people more than bonuses.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable. Great insurance benefits. I have a good work/life balance and have had to work very little overtime. You can work here for a long time, and slowly/surely amass some wealth via stock.

    Cons

    Hierarchical to the core. The "EXPD CULTure" is a little hard to swallow. If you can't accept the culture, you should skip it. This is not the place for free spirits... Starting out vacation time is brutal. You get 3 weeks after your 5th year. Some Java developers need to learn new tricks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up. If you want to keep great IS people, you might want to look at what other technology companies are doing, and adopt some of their practices.

    I worked at Expeditors full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Expeditors provides a lot of structure, intensive training, and ability to learn technical skills.
    The company is also creating new roles, such as Business Process Analyst, which are great positions to be in. They provide great insight on the company and great technical skills.

    Cons

    Work can get stressful and feel unrewarding at times. Because competition is high, there can be pressure to improve performance when teams are already working at full capacity.
    Salaries are a bit low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in innovation, using more data visualization and programming skills.
