    Pros

    Amazing people/ Office culture
    Ability to move in a fast pace position
    Great company values

    Cons

    Compensation isnt given fairly. Yearly raises are few and far between, and once they are given its not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money to keep great people there. Don't allow others to leave the company for rivals because you refuse to value the team you have..

    I have been working at SIRVA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are many friendly people, freedom to do your job without much micromanagement. Hours are flxible, but as long as you are willing to work later

    Cons

    very high stress environment, too much work for one person, if you were lucky enough to get an annual raise is wasn't much, benefits are barely that and expensive and favoritism is rampant amongst upper management. Most of the grunts are women, most of the execs are male. You can socialize, as long as you are buddies with the boss.

    I worked at SIRVA as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I loved the nature of the work I performed. I was involved in the qualification of drivers under both of SIRVA's brands, northAmerican and Allied Van Lines. Very interesting, never a dull moment and so much to learn.

    Cons

    The culture was absolutely terrible in the area I worked in. Lots of politics and obvious favoritism. Some employees displayed unusually unprofessional behavior. Morale was not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers do not properly manage their employees and treat some more favorably than others. Make department managers more accountable for following through on company policy.

    There are no pros, just a bunch of unethical employees.

    Current Employee - International Relocation Coordinator in Oakbrook Terrace, IL
    Current Employee - International Relocation Coordinator in Oakbrook Terrace, IL

    I have been working at SIRVA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This job offers true, hands-on experience for newbies looking to enter the world of freight forwarding, logistics and corporate relocation. Your learn to liaise with international agents, foreign brokers, forwarders haulers and gain an invaluable understanding of the moving industry.

    Cons

    The culture is very much driven by cost reduction and not by long-term valuation of human capital. Not surprisingly, the pay is low for the work that you perform and the responsibility that you carry, once you have gained experience in the industry

    Pros

    I love my job at SIRVA because I believe we have a ton of autonomy in doing our jobs. We are customer centric and don't force people into a box. People have a opinions and can service their internal and external customers the best way they know how while aligning with the business.

    Cons

    Because we are so customer centric, there is a lot of pressure to get things right and done quickly. I think this is a good thing because it is all to be able to service the customer but it definitely can be a demanding industry to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, things are really awesome here, keep momentum going. move forward not backwards.

    I have been working at Sirva for over 5 years as a Claims Adjuster and I would say it's an OK company to work for

    Pros

    The majority of the people are wonderful to work with and the company likes to promote a "family" feel to the company but offereing things like Zoo Day or Komet Hockey Day and they give employees a ton of Vacation/Sick time.

    Cons

    Salary increases are almost non-existant, carreer advancement opportunities are few and far between and the insurance is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the employees what they are worth and get better benefits.
