    I have been working at C.H. Robinson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Social involvement; compliance in the transportation industry; one of the top 3PL's in the country; good benefits

    Cons

    Micro managing, all the way from the corporate level. A lot of unnecessary internal work along with too much customer workload. Very little opportunity to advance. Lots of favoritism...when a position opens up, rarely will they give the opportunity for people to interview for it, managers already have someone in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Need less micro managing; focus more on the root of the problems; listen to your employees concerns and address them

    Continue to invest in internal employee talent and promote from within

    I would give carrier reps more access to some of the information on performance that managers have. I think people will self manage if they are able to know where they stand at every moment.
