    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn and build lasting relationships with good colleagues.
    Learn and move on.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. don't apply for a job here unless you have thick skin or just need a job.

    Advice to Management

    Started out bright and promising. This company has a lot of potential, but poor company culture and extremely bad management team are limitations to the success and growth.

    This 3PL company has a unique niche and offers very valuable service offerings to its clients. For lower level employees this is an excellent opportunity and will give you a lot of opportunity to learn and grow.

    For mid-level and senior-level employees, forget it. This would be a waste of your skills and talents. The "senior management" team has very little strategic involvement at all. In fact, there are no strategic discussions what-so-every. Rather, managers are running around with their hair on fire to solve the next problem, instead of spending time planning for the future and strengthening the company's service offerings.

    Management meetings are an insult to "managers" and "leaders". The CEO does all the talking and uses management meeting to throw people under the bus and provides no direction or leadership at all. "Work harder", "work for less", "work more" and "why are there nobody here after 6pm" seems to be the consistent message to senior people in the organization, killing all moral and desire to walk the extra mile. Oh, the arrogance from the CEO, who was no doubt the main reason I left.

    Please do not apply for a job here.
    All the good people have either left or actively looking for a job.

    Pros

    You get free training that you can take with you through out your career. Easy place for anyone to get into.

    Cons

    This would not be a career move. The policies only apply to the favorites at the company. This company can be a lot bigger but the management takes suggestions to personal. Representatives are not valued. A lot of work and no incentives and no raises. Some of the employees aren't verified and used to social security numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do background checks and run random urine test and you will have less inaccuracies. Everyone deserves a job but should at least be sponsored or have a verifiable visa. The is unsafe for the other employees.

    Pros

    The culture was great. Everyone really worked as a team. Very loyal employees.

    Cons

    Difficulties managing their rapid growth. Large inefficiencies in distribution center. Some managers lacked proper training.

    Lack of training - I joined the company during their "busy season" - it was very difficult for me to receive adequate training.

    Difficulty retaining younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ways to retain younger employees - long-term, many of your current employees will retire or their production will go down.

    The management and the team I work with are fantastic. The company values are communicated and considered when choosing clients as well as staff which grows as well as protects the awesome culture that has been created here.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great people and fantastic team atmosphere.

    PBD Worldwide is the most exciting and challenging company I have ever worked for; amazing opportunities to learn, grow and be successful.

    The employees are like a great, big family.
    The management team has been around from 15+ years and are excellent role models for the employees.

    There's no typical day at PBD; every presents its own opportunities.

    Cons

    Not for people who is looking for an easy ride with a 9am-5pm work mentality.
    There are so many exciting things going on that you often need to make a conscious decision to stop, think and re-group.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the right people and right products.
