    They could have treated their employees with little more respect and understanding.

    I have been working at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics full-time

    Pros

    My actual job responsibility is fairly easy and relaxing when im not asked to do five other job titles

    Cons

    They expect one to do various job responsibilities and do not compensate for it.

    Advice to Management

    High expectations for little pay is not going to produce results for the ones who actually have the job skills

    Pros

    The first 2 years working at the company, I had an overwhelming feeling of workmanship and camaraderie with the other team members, and other teams, that I worked with as 1st Tier Technical Support Analyst for internal IT support.

    Cons

    After a little over 1 year after being promoted to a Systems Analyst, the same feeling I had with 1st Tier Technical Support Analyst (and Team Lead over that team) was gone. The management was lacking, was remote (I worked in the Brentwood, TN office with one other team member, with my direct management in two separate northern states) and had no supervision outside of negative critiques of work I was left to do alone with no oversight. After a year, I had worked to help thin out the overall issues with the application, and caused the workload to drop to an average of 3 support tickets a week. I was given no projects due to "not having certification in the system," which was composed of out-of-date online videos and sloppy questions on exams provided by the vendor. With the workload so low, they found the need to trim the team down, and being the new man on the totem pole, I was the first to go. Instead of being forthright, they found a way, citing corporate policy for hourly employees (despite being salaried) that I had violated as the reason they would fire me, to keep from having to provide a severance package. Due to this, they also invalidated the unemployment claim, leaving me out of work with no income for two months.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more hands on, and provide direction when the workload is dropped below an acceptable level. Be as transparent as possible with your employees, and be truthful behind the reasons of things, instead of finding a way to bend corporate policy to get what you want...

    Pros

    The pay was on point with industry standards, possibly even higher

    Cons

    They refuse to listen to employee ideas. Instead of trying to fix problems, management throws their hands up and say "oh well." They treat temps like they are worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and try to fix the system. Things can always be more efficient and productive.

    Pros

    Great place to work, with superb leadership, constant growth, challenging problems, and evolving analyses. Also senior management always has time for feedback, which is almost always constructive. I've yet to be placed in a situation where I could not ask for help and get it, often immediately. The greatest mistake I've made has been not taking fuller advantage of my mentors.

    Cons

    Like a lot of privately-owned firms, OHL runs a very lean ship. 60+ hr weeks are not uncommon, and are to be expected. However, if you keep a good attitude and keep your head down and grinding on stuff, rewards follow pretty quickly.

    Advice to Management

    You set the tone of the organization - treat something loosely and expect your employees to do the same.

    Pros

    Good company, great people, decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Took too many shortcuts in order to secure a contract with one customer that was designed for failure from the start.
