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

    Pros

    Large company, very secure. Can eventually lead to very good pay. Pay is decent for those just starting out. Satisfactory vacation and benefits packages. Days go by VERY quickly- very little down time or boredom. Can be rewarding work (sometimes) when a goal is reached. Good place to learn and get work experience, fun people for the most part to work with. Management is like most places: there will be some good and some bad. I do feel like my personal managers do care about their employees and want them to succeed and be happy at work.

    Cons

    Can also be very unrewarding at times: talking to less than desirable people (carriers, some other CHR reps) all day, lying/feeling unethical (sometimes lying is the only way to get a job done), being hounded by those with unreachable expectations (many customers). If you want to elevate within the company, take a number. It will likely be a long waiting game that is often based upon time instead of merit. Lots of in-fighting between CHR branches. Other branches will often be your biggest enemy as opposed to CHR competitors or any other outside factors. When other reviewers say that there is a bad work/life balance, take it seriously. It does consume your existence. Plan on a 40 hour week only if you take Friday off. Plan on some weekends as well. Very complicated pay structure. People (especially management) seem very secretive about compensation. Questions about future earning potential seem to be frowned upon and not encouraged to be asked. Everybody is asked to buy into the "trust that it will pay off in the end" philosophy. Very high turnover at CHR. The internal operating system (Navisphere) is frustrating- very unreliable and is constantly making life more difficult for CHR employees. Dealing with Navisphere crashing and running slowly is a daily problem that surely leaks immeasurable amounts of lost revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to improve work/life. CHR is a place where hard work and long hours are expected, but the good employees often get burn out and move on within 1-3 years. Invest time, people and money to what you can to improve the internal operating system. Do what you can (impossible to solve completely) to try to improve relations between branches.

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

    Pros

    Progressive people who are money driven and career oriented.
    24-35 age range
    Fast growing company
    Very presentable-really values customers' views of them

    Cons

    Can be stressful
    Location is a bit offsetting

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicated with your employees. They know you value them but it doesn't hurt to remind them every once in a while :-).
