    I worked at SIRVA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Generous PTO, casual dress code, a fairly laid back office environment and flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    The benefits are kind of lack luster for the price out of pocket.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, my experience with Sirva was good for me. I developed professionally and learned very much about the transportation/logistics industry. Ha, I also learned that an office environment is not a great place for me. Managers keep doing what you're doing, but show a little more appreciation for the hard work that so many people put in.

    Pros

    People are cool & it's a laid back environment. Bosses were cool & nobody stood over your shoulder all the time

    Cons

    Cafeteria is overpriced & really needs to quite pretending their burgers compare to McDonalds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better & give more bonuses to your staff instead of keeping it all for yourself. Less "certificates" for your walls...& more $$$.

    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..
