    Pros

    Growing. Expanding across the US. In need of talent for the future. Good culture. Exceptional people will have plenty of opportunities for advancement and to reap very good financial rewards.

    Cons

    They compete in a very tough industry. Relentless amount of activity 24/7/365. Fast paced. Not everyone will like the fast pace and high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Think bigger, move faster.

    More directors and managers than staff. Overlapping responsibilities with other managers.

    Pros

    Great subsidized lunches and food discounts. Potential for good bonuses. Able to work from home occasionally. Serene location.

    Cons

    Too much "leadership" and very poor communication. Negativity and backstabbing rewarded handsomely.

    Advice to Management

    Right-size management to staffing ratio. Promote mandatory ethics training. Draw clear lines of responsibility and encourage teamwork. Eliminate prima donnas who rise up by criticizing everybody and everything.

    Pros

    Special price in for purchasing food which save lots of money. Met lots of new people, always something to do. Learned a lot about costumer service.

    Cons

    Cut throat environment with management. Lots of chest pounding but no accountibility when mistakes are made (the blame game). Some management have no clue what they are doing.

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally good people! There is sometimes free good food available! Benefits are pretty good and a chance at a yearly bonus is always nice.

    Cons

    The bad "corporate" culture. Pile as much stuff on you as possible to try and find your breaking point. Not much room for advancement in my position.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out and realize there is only so much a person can do!

    Pros

    Pays decent. two days off in a row. Nothing else.

    Cons

    22 hour work days. Hard on knees. Bosses don't answer phones. Have to rely on dispatch for everything. Layovers. Everything.

    Get some that know how to do their job. Stop ignoring calls from employees.

    Very hard physical work, and limited family time. Even if you have free time/ day off , you are too tired to enjoy it.

    Pros

    Company as a whole, attempts to show appreciation with lunches and contests. Accumulated vacation days. President holds monthly meetings to discuss state of the organization.

    Cons

    You are worked extremely hard and reminded of your position. Make an error, you may wind up being written up. Office staff is inadequately compensated; when all get raises under $1, there is an extreme issue. Office wages are completely unsustainable. You are required to cover when people are out and be done by 5PM; this company frowns on overtime. Three holidays a year; Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years a real problem with family. If you work in Finance, you will be required to be in on Saturdays when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your office staff and consider the wages they are being paid. Most people are respectful; however there are those that need to invoke a bit more tact and kindness.
