    I have been working at BlueGrace Logistics full-time

    Pros

    I have previously worked for several large, well-known companies, and BlueGrace Logistics is a very exciting company to be a part of. The vision of where this company started, and where it is headed in the near future, is clear. It is an amazing time to be a part of this culture and community. My coworkers are positive, and ambitious. They are friendly, knowledgeable and open to continuous improvement. Very relaxed, yet professional atmosphere. Everyone has a voice and a role to play in the growth of this company. CEO, Bobby Harris is very connected and cares about how operations are performed on a daily basis. He is completely invested in the growth of the company, and the betterment/success of his employees. In a world full of large corporations, BlueGrace is a breath of fresh air. Very excited and happy to have found a place with BlueGrace, and can't wait to see what the future holds for this company.

    Cons

    Depending upon your personality, BlueGrace hires for the culture and environment. Many employees play several roles, so it is really important that each new hire fits in well with the culture BlueGrace has built. If you are a prospective employee, and are not a team player, ambitious, self-motivated and positive, this is not the right environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of continuous improvement, always be willing to adapt and welcome an open forum for conversation. With the hyper-growth to come in the following years, this becomes extra important to maintain the atmosphere and culture BlueGrace has spent the last 7+ years creating.

    I have been working at BlueGrace Logistics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great team oriented environment
    - Leadership truly does care about you and your development - All the way to the top!
    - Uhh free beer?
    - Rapid growth
    - Opportunities for those that have the ability to identify areas that need focus and own it
    - Chaos - in a good way!

    Cons

    If you like a structured environment where your path is laid out for you then BlueGrace may not be the place for you. The sky is the limit here, but only for those willing to believe and give their full effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at BlueGrace Logistics full-time

    Pros

    Free Beer, Culture Events, that's about it

    Cons

    Terrible benefits, the healthcare is an absolute joke. They don't care about their employees and the turnover is unreal. If they feel you aren't making enough money for them, they will cut you loose with no notice. 25 people were hired
     in the same group as me seven months ago, and more than half of them have been terminated. They get all of these government funds to employee people but then get rid of them as soon as they are "underperforming." Not to mention the people who have been there for a few years are given precedence over everything, setting up new people for failure so that they can then give any accounts the new people earned to their top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Have some moral integrity and take care of your employees and foster their growth. Quit setting up new employees for failure to benefit your top performers. Quit using your "fun culture" as a facade to pull people in only to drop them without a hint of a warning.

    I worked at BlueGrace Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BlueGrace offers good earning potential for young professionals in a hard-working team environment. The Richmond office is managed by a genuinely good man who creates a fun team atmosphere and puts constant effort into helping employees develop professional skills.

    Cons

    Be careful about how you make suggestions to management; any advice or feedback sounding like a complaint will not be tolerated. The insurance benefits are okay for individuals but are not very aggressive for employees with families.

    Advice to Management

    Put some effort into Enterprise-level marketing and lead generation.

    Pros

    The executive leadership is top notch with Bobby Harris at the helm.

    Cons

    The Enterprise sales division is a Joke! Making up the structure of the entire division as they go and only a handfull of sales for the entire team.

    Allow a mix of sales to meet quota both small business and enterprise. Offer better training

    Pros

    The culture is extremely important to the company, and it makes BlueGrace a great place to be.

    Tons of flexibility with roles throughout the company. If one role does not quite suit you, they're willing to work with you to find the right place.

    Your voice will be heard! If you have a suggestion, concern, or just something you want to say, you can input it in Tinypulse and Bobby will see it.

    Cons

    Nothing so far, to be honest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great culture as the company expands.
