    I have been working at C.H. Robinson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love the work environment, great people, lots of opportunity to develop your career, and trusting leadership. Empowered to make good decisions and grow. Looking forward to working here as long as I can.

    Cons

    If you're not in IT, this review may not apply to you. The corporate culture seems to vary significantly depending on which building you're sitting in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep cultivating the talent from within. If you empower them and pay them well, they will stay. Reward your top employees.

    I have been working at C.H. Robinson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomy to make decisions without micromanagement. Out selling and expected to sell within the first 6 months. Commission incentive on top of a livable salary considering it is a sales position

    Cons

    Tough, hyper competitive industry. Large learning curve which can be a barrier to success early on. The time it takes to find and prospect leads is too much, the company needs to address this.

    Advice to Management

    Every office will be different but I'd advise my boss and supervisor to be more hands on in development. Take a new executive through the whole process of an actual sale, from first touch point to proposal.

    I worked at C.H. Robinson full-time

    Pros

    Excellent money, employee stock benefits are very valuable.

    Cons

    Bloated management. Middle management in particular is excessive and filled with yes-men who have no actual job skills and contribute nothing. Gossip and back-stabbing define the culture as people jockey for ever-higher positions/bonuses. The people lower on the pay scale work the hardest. Young people, women and minorities have a tough time here.

    Advice to Management

    Examine the "lifers" and you'll find the source of much of the toxicity in the organization. There are many people in this company who make too much money to leave, yet are bitter and ungrateful about their good fortune and create a negative atmosphere that stifles innovation.
