I have been working at Expeditors full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Challenging work if you're a nerd. MIS, computerized modeling, ops myt, and all that jazz

Cons

Fast paced work, boring government beureaucratic nonsense. Outdated systems( this is a 2 way street if you look at what the company values)

Advice to Management

Take a little more initiative to make operations a little more standardized. Aid in operational efficiency across the board. (Long Term goal) audit team will look at this more closely. Best practices used to increase productivity

    I worked at Expeditors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being my first job out of college, it helped me avoid many of the career pitfalls that I might have experienced later...because I went through them first at Expeditors.

    Cons

    From a clinical point of view, it's a pretty efficient model: Take smart, motivated young people. Fill them with promises of career advancement so that they'll work extremely hard and long hours (often illegally off the clock), pay them well below industry standard and then promote the very few based on favoritism...unconnected with their actual abilities. Truly the worst work experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    The employees are the most important function of any service industry. When you treat them with the bare minimum of respect, pay the bare minimum wages, and then have a culture that expects to be thanked for it, you will only ever get middle tier employees which, unfortunately, may be all you need.
