    Great place to work but a lot of red tape

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsVery enjoyable place to work, lots of training opportunities and ability to move up if you are willing to.

    ConsThere is a lot of bureaucracy with anything that needs done. Any project that would take a week to complete will take 10 weeks due to all the paperwork associated with it. Medical insurance is expensive and bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline the internal processes to reduce the bottlenecks.

    Good job, great benefits

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Reno, NV

    Pros-awesome benefits, even for pt employees
    -competitive pay when compared with industry rivals
    -good balance between work and private life

    Cons-upper management seems to think they are very smart, in the case of the region where I worked, they were not.

    -making changes that were detrimental to our operations and the equipment we needed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen your subordinate employees give you advice on what is needed or what should/shouldn't change, take it to heart, there are a lot of people who care for the company and know what they are talking about.

    Good internship, led to job offer

    Intern (Former Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsGood pay for summer internship (3k a month after taxes)
    Interaction with very senior executives
    Positive work environment
    Good work hours
    Good culture
    Company you can be proud to work for
    Although my group had a hiring freeze, my manager worked the phones with other managers and directors and got my two interviews that both led to offers

    ConsWorking in Memphis (and I'm from Memphis)
    Overall intern program was unorganized, my manager did a good job though
    Many interns had great reviews but hiring freezes meant their managers couldn't offer

    Advice to Senior ManagementStructure the intern program better, have more interactions with other interns. Me and the intern in my group never had any interaction with the other interns in different areas. Groups that had many interns set things up for their interns to do, but in smaller groups like mine that only had 2 interns, we were sort of lef out of teh loop.

    Small part in a very large organization with somewhat limited scope, but many good things about company.

    Marketing Specialist Advisor (Current Employee) Memphis, TN

    ProsWork conditions. Safety. Facilities. Adequate tools to do the job. Convenience. Sufficient flexibility.

    ConsLimited income growth. Pay scales not rationalized. The real inside track is not always known. Very challenging competition. Lots of outstanding talent and intelligence, but sometimes lacking in real and broad experience, especially experience in Transportation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThorough review of pay, pay scales, and rationale for pay, plus more cross-OpCo equalization. Managers don't want to talk about pay. It is much too secretive. Encourage this before economy and hiring improves to mitigate turnover. Issue would have greater urgency if FXS were located in most any other city.
