Pros

Strong carrier in midst of challenging environment. Strong level of latitude for sales persons. Numerous resources. Upper management group is forward thinking with new ideas and processes. Open door policy with immediate manager.

Cons

Inconsistent. Not always able to penetrate against other more respected carriers. Limited on-the job training. Overwhelmingly dependent on 3PL contributions. Ability to negotiate at lower level sales positions virtually does not exist.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people at the lower levels of employment. Remove barrier that exists between upper management, lower level management, and rank-and-file employees. Also, remove barrier between operations personnel and sales. Both need each other to survive, so it is critical that both communicate consistently and effectively.

    Cons

    The home office is a little old, so the AC cuts out from time to time. In addition, it's located in a part of town that floods from time to time. There is never enough Parking in either lot to allow for everyone in the company to driver to work and park a car.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!
