      Pros

      I had the opportunity to work with some great people.

      Cons

      No work life balance. Went a few years without any raise. Blatant favoritism. Some members of management need to go back to the basics on how to interact with people.

      Excellent Freight Forwarder to Work For

      Apr 18, 2019 - Pricing Analyst in Miami, FL

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Excellent benefits, clean office, good HR policies, cares for employees, chances to move up. One of my worst career decisions was to leave Schenker. I felt very welcome there and should have stayed longer. Expect to work diligently, but also expect to not be asked to work outside of the office. Good work life balance. Good opportunity to move up.

      Cons

      Pay is not the best, sometimes can be rigid on employee needs
