    I worked at Bridge Terminal Transport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much I liked working here.

    Cons

    Management has no leadership skills (including CEO and CFO). Not interested in their employees or what they have to say.

    Advice to Management

    Show interest in your employees and listen to what they have to say. All management needs to take some leadership classes.

    I have been working at Bridge Terminal Transport full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are no Pros that come to mind.

    Cons

    Everything. Poor communication, upper management does nothing to improve working conditions. CEO and CFO are completely clueless, which resulted in Maersk selling the company. Through the years I have worked at BTT, there have been no great successes in the bottom line. The recent recession pretty much crippled BTT, as the then-new CEO proceeded to lay off 50-60% of the office staff and close terminals left & right. Subsequently, when people quit (and many have quit the place) their roles remained unfilled. I do not see BTT lasting another 10 years. Maybe 5.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Find your true calling in life, because managing this company is not it.

    Pros

    You'll learn more about trucking and small business life than anywhere else in a similar amount of time. The the wide majority of office staff and drivers there are great people, and genuinely care about you as an individual. I've never had more fun at a job than I did here. Very casual workplace, usually that's a good thing. You have a lot of freedom to manage your window the way you see fit. Management backs you 100%. Ironbound section of Newark has great food and vibrant nightlife. Frequent meetings and discussion, lends to the idea of a cooperative workplace. You'll leave the job one day with a feeling of pride and accomplishment.

    Cons

    When it's bad, it's bad. Scary bad. Wild stress, extreme pressure and workload fluctuation. Computer systems are dreadfully slow. Teamwork can be strong, but sometimes lacks at critical times. You work in a trailer beneath Routes 1&9. Expectations are not always realistic, and compensation is not commensurate with the job's demands. You've got to be tough and ready or you'll be eaten alive.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staying competitive in a changing marketplace. Current business model does not seem to be viable in a dynamic and downturning industry. Sales team and operations team need to be on the same page to better manage customer expectations.

    Pros

    Generally a well managed company which looks after its people as well as the bottom line.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are few and far between but his is mainly due to the fairly small number of employees in the head office.

    Pros

    Good company to work for and no micromanaging. Laid back feeling but still serious about making our goals.

    Cons

    No room for growth in the company. The position you are hired for is it. Terminals too small to move up.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to take freight that is impossible to cover then you should be finding drivers in advance for the move.

    I worked at Bridge Terminal Transport full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some very good people on the terminal level. Interesting industry.

    Cons

    Communication from home office was poor. Senior management did not listen and was not supportive. Seemingly no consideration for adequate staffing on the terminal level. Much more concern for the look of a terminal and staff than effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Actually engage with your employees and consider other opinions. Staff to a level that allows the terminal to be effective, not what a spreadsheet says.

    Pros

    Great terminal and sales staff across the US to work with.
    Good book of business with great relationships with their customers.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional, strained relationship between Corp and the terminals - starts with leadership.
    CEO is not a motivator nor an effective communicator. Does not see the big picture nor have relevant discussions and make decisions to ensure the company grows and is successful.

    Advice to Management

    BTT will continue to struggle with current executives.
