Pros

Low administrative overhead, excellent medical benefits, generally strong upper management, minimal overtime, not a lot of micromanagement depending on the team

Cons

Very low salary compared to market, lack of schedule flexibility, minimal sick time, lack of HR department means that accurate benefits information isn't always provided, training and expectations highly variable depending on team, stable but boring technologies (except when someone decides to swap out a bunch of architecture and you end up rewriting an application), massive disconnect between business and IT

Advice to Management

If there isn't going to be an HR department, at least provide training or find a way to help managers provide correct information to employees, sick policy is terrible; please review compensation for IT, reconnect what IT is building with what the business needs built

    Pros

    The Health Benefits are amazing compared to the industry. In addition, they are recognized as the industry leader and boost your resume.

    Cons

    The management was difficult to reach, and extremely careless about the employees. I had no exit interview, and they generally do not seek a relationship besides that of work matters.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the employees by speaking with them and welcoming them to the company. Control the collective negative energy in the workplace.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There is job stability and excellent medical benefits- but thats it.

    Cons

    Expeditors loves proclaiming top-notch 'professionalism' in the industry, but somehow manage to promote idiots with barely a high school education to supervisor/management positions. EI LAX is capitalism at its finest- why hire more people when 1 slave can do the job of 3? No rasies or bonuses are given to non-mangement employees, although the $$$$ is there. Ridiculous expectations from low-level management towards employees. No Human Resources Dept. HIGHLY STRESSFUL WORK ENVIRONMENT.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. And STOP telling employees to be grateful we have jobs. Without your employees there is no Expeditors. Remember that. Also, low level managment need courses on how to coach employees. Better yet, you should require college educated people for sups/management positions. Novel idea.
