    I have been working at Coyote Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people really make Coyote a great place to work. It's a lively and fun culture that can really energize people who are motivated by those types of things, but it's certainly not for everyone. I worked for a Fortune 500 company out of college for 2 years and left due to its toxic culture. My experience has been quite different than many of the other reviews, in that I've seen numerous opportunities for career progression - in both breadth and depth. I sincerely believe that it is much more of a meritocracy than people tend to advertise. More often than not, the people who are complaining about being passed over for promotions are generally the people doing the least to help themselves get promoted. It doesn't just get handed to you for showing up 5 days a week.

    Cons

    If you don't operate well in an open environment with potential noise and distractions, then this may not be a good workplace for you. Employee turnover is a bit high in new hires (1-2 years experience) and they generally move on to some other entry level sales type gig, if they're not earning additional money over base salary by that time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to improve the continual development and engagement with your mid-tenure employees. Ensure that you're transparent with all company goals and initiatives and try to engage your front line people more in the planning and execution of those goals. I think some employees start to feel like they're not as important or being left behind, and that's when you start to see them burn out or leave.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, In house technology, customizable to customer's needs

    Cons

    Young hires, High turnover rate, promotion is by likability and not skill

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of who you have right now, because you may think theres another one in college ready to be a Coyote, but your customers do not like changes

    Pros

    Great training, benefits, opportunity and a fun young group of co workers make the days go by fast.

    Cons

    Work doesn't end at the door, it follows you home and the opportunity they sell themselves on doesn't become attainable until at least year 3

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and appreciate the assets (people, not trucks) that you have because there are a lot of other companies who will gladly take them off your payroll.

    Pros

    Family environment, work great fun loving people. I love this company deeply. They have ping-pong and corn hole in the break room. We get free lunch on the last Friday off every month. Beer 30 is a thing every Friday! Everyone is essay to talk to with growing opportunity.

    Cons

    Staying in driver services you get some angry people on the phone, but luckly you have many people to vent to about that one rude driver! Only con I see.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding with people with children and medical issues.

    I have been working at Coyote Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back work environment.
    Friendly coworkers
    Laid back dress code.
    Free Beer every Friday.
    Most Managers are easy going.

    Cons

    -Long hours BECAUSE of the heavy work load.
    -I often find my days being 7am-6pm
    -Upward Growth seems to be limited unless you decide you want to manage a group of people in this company.
    *I originally applied as a National Account Manager but was offered a position as an Enterprise Operations Coordinator, I accepted it because the Account Manager didn't seem as appealing with how I wanted to work. If you're going to accept this offer, consider that your workload will explode. 1.5k emails was not what I expected.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that a lot of us aren't able to be proactive because of the workload. If we decide to take a 20 min break (If we're lucky enough to), we'll come back to about 80-100 emails we have to go through most days. We aren't slacking, the workload is just super heavy, especially for Enterprise Accounts.
