    Pros

    Solid training to make sure you're ready once you hit the ground. Fun events and team building so you feel like you're in a fun environment instead of just an office space.

    Cons

    Long hours and fast pace do make it rough at times, but I guess that's what you signed up for.

    Pros

    The training program was very effective and gave great opportunities to learn and bond with the rest of the team. They have a lot of events and things to keep a fun environment whenever possible.

    Cons

    They need the events because it was stressful with the long hours and strict timing requirements. The company was also growing really fast while I was there, so things were constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication about the company changes.

    Pros

    Wide open! Its still a start up, but it is coming of age and beginning to establish an identity in the industry. If you process improvement is your driving force, this is a great place for you. But, be ready to put the hours in.

    Cons

    Current mid level management could use some reconfiguring. Some young talent being wasted due to poor processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A rolling stone gathers no moss and a rising tide lifts all boats.

    Pros

    This company has a great vision. They really want to be the leaders in the logistics industry. They really have a focus on IT driving the need to move their company forward.

    Cons

    They do not do work-life balance well. Several meetings with upper management happen after 6:00 PM. The CEO works a ton and expects the same level of work from his employees.

    They are expanding by buying companies, but do not have the infrastructure to support their purchases. They do not have the hardware or the IT personnel to support the staff they are acquiring. Since these IT guys are overworked, they are leaving in droves, which accentuates the problem.

    They buy companies and then lay off their staff--especially in the infrastructure and accounting arenas.

    If they do not lay you off, they ask you to move to their headquarters in Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, it is usually without any incentive to do so except to keep your job. Moving expenses are small and laughable at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to stop treating people like assets instead of expenses that you can write off. You need to make your employees want to work for your company instead of being something they tolerate.
