    Pros

    Family oriented, each office has a bar, friendly people

    Cons

    Too many red tapes, some of upper management gets all the pie, always claim they are not doing well.

    Advice to Management

    INTERACT WITH THE EMPLOYEES AND LISTEN TO THEM. All of the competition is literally taking the employees and paying more

    Pros

    Good stepping stone for the industry, great co-workers, okay medical benefits depending on which plan you pick, free dental, low cost vision plan, there's a bar in the office; opens on some Fridays free to the employees. Many people do make mistakes and I still have not seen them fired, so that may be a plus to some people, not me, that was annoying.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible for the amount of work you do, workload and deadlines are extremely stressful, management does not help in the areas that are needed at least in my department, extreme high volume with little bit of staff to efficiently run everything smoothly, is not worth to do overtime here; overtime starts 15 minutes AFTER your initial shift is over, so you're working for free for that time period, their excuse is the 45 minute lunch we get and then they don't allow you to stay long afterward so it's pretty much free overtime the first 15 minutes and then what you do work is taken away in taxes, so it's really not worth it in the end... just go home and save yourself the trouble and time. They pretty much rarely fire anyone here so the only job advancements you'll make is if any girl leaves because she's choosing to stay home after having a baby, someone dies, or they quit.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more personnel for the amount of volume you are receiving. It's not that the person can't do their job, but the volume in files for a big port like LAX, needs more personnel for everything to run smoothly. This is a big complaint from nearly every employee that works there to date.

    Pros

    The company organisation is flat, so decisions can be made really quickly. The management is always accessible and helpful. People are valued and cared, the company arranges parties for clients and own staff constantly, creating a pleasant working atmosphere.

    Cons

    The flat organisational structure also means there are few opportunities for promotion and development, especially in terms of job placement and rotation. There are hardly any leadership development, training or rotational programs.

    Advice to Management

    Consider development programs for people employed over 5 years at the same role.

    poor support from IT department, computer equipment is outdated, extremely outdated system, inefficient and old. Promises of a new system but it was worse than the original.
