    I worked at Univar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office's, co-workers, good benefits (health, life, 401k)
    Team support, provide training.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, 25 year old out dated system. Superiors micromanaging employee's, hard to keep up with expectations. No incentives, No bonus. Not worth all the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on motivating employees by providing incentives (not just emails or $75 gift cards) and appreciation for the hard work. Avoid micromanaging, controlling time and action of the employee's. Provide trust and freedom to execute tasks with an individual approach.
