    I worked at MIQ Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere which made work pleasurable. Good team environment to cross-train within the team and work out solutions for different problems occurring on a daily basis. Relatively good health benefits.

    Cons

    There was not enough room for growth and development to move onto a different and more responsible role within the company. Salary in comparison to other companies within this industry was too low.

    Advice to Management

    Salary raises for employees to keep inflation and the costs of living. For the past few years there were no raises in salaries even thought Chicago branch was doing extremely well financially.

    Pros

    I joined MiQ when co-founders just started up the company. All of them are intelligent and efficiency. Things are to be done quickly and great opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Start up work is always stressful. Long working hours and urgent task may require additional working hours after going back to home.

    Advice to Management

    Now MiQ is expanding quickly and amazingly. The company will succeed if managers and employees keep staying together and keep contributing.

    I have been working at MIQ Logistics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Global company - Room for advancement (for the right people) - Forward thinking - Focused company growth - Decent benefits (insurance, 401K, company picnics/events, appreciation events). Promote from within. Published core values and guiding principles, vision, mission. Great office environment, clean and somewhat new and fresh. Friendly people and team work. Also participate in the annual Kansas City Corporate Challenge. Very competitive and have had much success in the events. Too be honest, I have been with the company many years and overall I am very happy here.

    Cons

    Lack of accountability - especially many of the managers. Too many of the managers fail to follow-up and also fail to hold "certain" employees accountable (Apparent favoritism). One specific manager spends entirely too much time "in the weeds" and not enough time managing the department and is often unavailable. Even though they have published Core values, etc. there are too many times that even members of the management team may not always "practice what they preach." Some of the managers have a reputation for rehiring employees who have left and then giving them more money to return, rather than keep in the first place. This has a somewhat negative impact on employees who have been loyal and have remained.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk, talk the talk. Hold all managers accountable. Provide goals and performance appraisals in a timely manner. Get on the floor more often and engage with the staff.

    Nice working environments....peers are nice.

    Upper management can't seem to get a winning strategy after many changes.

    Advice to Management

    Find a formula and give it a chance to work.

    I have been working at MIQ Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MIQ is a flat organization and very entrepreneurial. The sales commissions are uncapped, so if you work hard the pay can be very lucrative. Not everyone succeeds in that type of work environment. The benefits are good and if you want to grow in your career the management is very helpful. The leadership has high integrity and I am able to stand behind what I sell, which is very important to me. I think work-life balance for sales is outstanding.

    Cons

    Not every office has a great team, there are lots of bright spots around the country, but like any large organization there are weak links. The nature of a logistics company is sometimes you have to control costs, and not all levels of employees are compensated at the highest levels.

    Advice to Management

    Try to incentivize the operations team more, give them more of an equity share in what they do, to help motivate performance.

    Pros

    The environment here is great. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I have been working here for a little over 6 months now and I'm still learning new things all of the time.

    Cons

    Since you are working in relation with customs, you dont have many holidays off.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more direct instead of temp work.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent. Financial backing from their venture capital firm is solid and invests well into the company. We will have to see how long this will last.

    Cons

    Horrible working environment in the Gardena office. Everyone gossips on each other and it is freely accepted in this office. Management is only concerned about themselves and has no respect for sales people. They are only interested in your database of customers that you add in CRM. The venture capital firm will eventually be flip this company to make a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources needs to step in and stop the gossiping in their offices. It brings down morale and harbors a very hostile working environment.
