    Pros

    Team work within the department is good and is getting better with other partners.

    Cons

    Management is slow to make decisions and the rollout of new programs is often incomplete leaving people to struggle through on their own.

  2. Yet another change in strategy

    Pros

    Kewill has some truly great people who are experts in their field. Its software solutions are used by an impressive client list.

    Cons

    Constant changes to strategy and management mean there is often a total lack of direction, or that direction will change 180 or even 360 degrees in a year. This makes it hard to serve customers in the way you would like or they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy already.

  3. Going down hill quickly - US jobs are going to our Indian division.

    Pros

    Work with an amazing group of people at my level.

    Cons

    Salary adjustments are based on the current fiscal year not the prior one that our performance reviews are based on. CEO informed us that "Mediocre or poor performance will not be rewarded." So it seems to me that if only 25% of the employees are receiving any salary adjustments then 75% of the employees provided a "mediocre or poor performance". So will the CEO react and start laying off these employees or is this just a ploy to get us to work harder and longer hours for free? We were already told that even when you are on vacation you are expected to be responsive to e-mails, etc. That's not much of a vacation.

    This is not a US company, so do not expect to have the transparency as if it were one.

    Advice to Management

    Do not think for 1 minutes that your employees lack the confidence to got out and find another job.

    Pros

    Good people, clean work environment

    Cons

    We make the same mistakes over and over. We are back to using an India development team. This almost put us out of business in the past and is looking like it is going down that path again. Sales are bad, products still don't integrate and development team is half a world away.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes, the ship is sinking

    Pros

    you get to learn a lot here and make good contacts in the industry of supply chain and logistics.

    Cons

    communication needs to be better

    Advice to Management

    Making the communications better will be really helpful. The management policies should percolate to all the levels of employees.

    Pros

    The people are great, the product is great.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management. A lot of layoffs over the last 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees, senior management seems to be too busy to do this.

    clueless management for the most part - don't understand the Global part of the business and totally focused on parcel shipping

    Pros

    Respectful of the work/life balance, although a great number of employees who are local are allowed to work from home when they feel like it.

    Cons

    The Senior Management Team seemingly isn't concerned with what isn't working when it comes to growing the business and has failed to act with a sense of urgency time and time again when programs, processes and or people are in place that/who negatively impair revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the answers to fix what isn't working with how to grow the business lies within most of the everyday workers. The Senior Management Team is out of touch with the day to day operations.
