    Pros

    Strive was an amazing company to work for in what seems to be a saturated market. They are moderate size, small enough to where you will get to know everyone in your division and have the opportunity for career advancement, but large enough for a strong customer base. Detailed training and strong, genuine managers make for a very positive experience in such a demanding field.

    Cons

    Logistics is a demanding industry in nature, and good companies have high demands for their employees. Not necessarily a con, but if you do not want to dive into logistics head first, I do not suggest the industry! Expect to work hard!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    It's in the middle of downtown Austin, but that can easily be a con. Im paying way too much for way too little so that i can be close and don't have to drive for hours like other coworkers do.

    Cons

    They will drop you in a second when work gets slow. We lost 3 out of 5 people who were hired only months ago. I feel real bad for them. There is obviously an in crowd and if your not in then it kind of gets annoying real fast. You work 7-5 that's a 9 hour shift with an hour lunch, so 10 hours a day at wok. Tons of other stuff, don't wast your time I'm looking for a new job as we speak.

    Advice to Management

    Learn better time management. You spent over a month training us in generalities of the business and then when we actually got into our jobs we were expected to hit the floor running yet we had hardly been trained on what we needed to do. Use more of that first training month on actual job processes. Also make sure the person training is aware that spitting out information at a million miles an hour is not training. We get it... you know the business well. However you need to be patient because new hires dont know the business.

    Pros

    The management team listens when you have something to say. I love that if I have an idea they will give me the tools to try it out. Strive truly is like a family where everyone supports one another.

    Cons

    It can be an intense industry but for the right person it might just fire you up!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in training and development for all employees.

    Pros

    Great time to be working in the industry - solid market and opportunities. Strive is fun, fast paced, social, and exciting. Fun place to be, and growing quickly without making you feel like a number.

    Cons

    Long days - they definitely try to make it as fun as possible with perks during the day but it is still relatively long hours. Work-life balance could be improved and nice to see management aware of it and at least trying to make it much better.

    Pros

    They like to hire many college graduates. It is a t-shirt & shorts environment. They like to throw parties. The senior managers have a positive outlook for the company. The average employee age is almost 25 or 26. They promote within.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours, early start. No lunch room, and no break for lunch, you work through it. You must be successful in the first 90 days, or they will drop you. Please be aware that summer is the busy season, and they will lay off people during the winter. Many people come and go.

    Pros

    The company has been consistently growing at a rapid pace for the last 5 years, including the opening of 2 new offices - Scottsdale, AZ and Austin, TX. The people are great, the starting salaries are very competitive, and there is unlimited earning potential for both carrier and customer sales reps.

    Cons

    Logistics is a tough industry, it's not for everyone. Days can be fast paced, intense, and stressful. Then again, what job with any real opportunity doesn't have these things?
