    Great for a large corporation

    Administrator II (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL

    ProsGreat benefits, even for part time! Varies tremendously by department. Sales, for instance, provides a lot of opportunities, and Customer Care really has your back and your career.

    ConsLarge corporation mean endless red-tape. Things move slowly in large corporations, politics abound. Most else will vary by department. Purchasing offers little room for growth, for instance; and does not compensate fairly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInterdepartmental training would really be great to get people outside their little bubbles to be part of the whole company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Don't stay too long. If you're not moving up in the first 2 years, you are not moving up. Move on.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits for a corporation.

    ConsWe talk about ethics, but end up nearly getting delisted from Nasdaq. You do the math. Management is always changing guard. In good times and bad, employees are expected to tighten their belts. In the past 15 years, 5 of the years have seen pay freezes. 401 k match remains suspended to date.

    Gained valuable experience....to use elsewhere

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee) Clearwater, FL

    ProsDevelopment of skill sets, learning the business, co-workers.

    ConsExecutive leadership decisions that severely impact your success, marketing managers that have no business in that role, little coaching/development help, questionable promotions for individuals who bring little value, compensation is a JOKE compared to industry and area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo you notice top talent leaving? May want to devise a plan and career path that retains your employees. Refresh your marketing managers as some have been in same position for years and offer no value anymore.

    Simple work, ridiculous politics

    Manager, Area Logistics (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    ProsThe company is very aware of the need for SOPs, especially safety. The facility was kept relatively clean. There was a training resource center available to associates. It's a 3PL, so the work was a no-brainer.

    ConsWAY too many politics for what is essentially a warehouse. Senior management at the branch level WAY too interested in power a cushioning themselves from blame. If they cannot burn you without throwing themselves on the flame, they will get another senior manager to do it for them. Had my suggestions shot down, only to be submitted by my senior manager as his own. They had too many eggs in one basket with a single account and would not heed to obvious suggestions when I raised about diversification. The writing was on the wall and after I left, that account was lost, resulting in loss of revenue and loss of jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHope it has changed since I left, but many perfectly qualified and valuable people were marginalized over inner-office politics. Let the managers manage the work and keep senior management in their offices. Don't be so afraid of unionization that you let the associates dictate the policies.

    Great company!

    Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsGrowth, Stable, Opportunities, Connections, Great perks

    Conscompensation, corporate policy, politics, hours, professionalism

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay better attention to who you says things to...Some information should remain in HR. Too much mingling occurs between work and personal lives. THe industry seems to be very small and word travels quickly.
