    Pros

    Team players from Co-workers to management. Many perks from benefits package to on-site gym & cafeteria. Large corporation with great friendly atmosphere. Management was supportive, approachable and fair in business and personal situations.

    Cons

    Work load balance depended upon the current situation at hand. At times unannounced program changes could cause havoc and hectic pace making for a stress filled shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every department needs to be kept updated with changes made. Inter-office memos could be sent out and returned with an electronic signature verifying receipt. In all departments, across the board, Training is Key for a smooth running operation. Good documentation and communication is also a major factor in keeping the Purple Promise! Best regards for continued success!!

    Pros

    The working environment is very friendly. Teamwork is emphasized. There are lot of opportunities for engineers to make both lateral and upward moves in different departments.

    The hiring process is very slow. It will take some time before you get your answer to the interview you have given. Even applies to moves within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much time taken in hiring.

    Pros

    Overall good opportunity for advancement. Vacation clock starts from initial date of hire, even if you start as a package handler. Most of my managers have been great to work for. Coworkers are great with very few exceptions. Effort and competency are rewarded.

    Cons

    Promotion practices have changed significantly, making it much more difficult for some positions to move up. Senior management varies from outstanding to abysmal. HR tends to be biased towards package handlers and senior managers.

    Pros

    You will learn how to manage and adapt quickly. Company is constantly evoloving. Has new policy and procedure come out constantly and managers are the responsible parties for the implementation.

    Cons

    There a lot of intangible variable that have the potential of going wrong. There is no unplugging from the job. The network runs 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more site visits so the frontline managers see a face to the decision makers.

    Pros

    Great teamwork, good exercise. I put on a lot of muscle. Policies were reasonable. It was a good summer job.

    Cons

    Extremely hot working environment in the summer, even at night, and probably equally cold in the winter. There is not a lot of opportunity to learn or apparent potential for growth immediately out of this position. I would not want to do this job long term. I came home every night covered with bruises. I was as strong as an ox but stiff all day.

    Pros

    Training is great. Management is personable. Everyone is really nice. The cafeteria is better than some area restaurants, complete with an al fresco dining area. Also, there is a weight room/fitness area that I have not had time to use yet.

    Cons

    There are no cons that I can think of. Um.....I wish I had a bigger workload? Sometimes I do because I like to stay busy. Other than that I can't think of a thing.
