Pros

Flexible and interesting work, good people and good job security for those who perform well. Company did not layoff a single full time employee during economic downturn and continues to maintain a growing presence in the industry. Competative pay/benefits

Cons

Constant change and turnover at the middle management level. Low employee morale. OVerworked staff at every level. Mixed messages at multiple levels of management. No training opportunities.

Advice to Management

Provide more clarity, less general guidance and feedback to employees. Offer training to employees to increase individual value and team productivity.

    Pros

    The opportunities can be quite attractive, but putting in your time so to speak can become frustrating depending on the level of neglect your facility may have suffered under previous management over the years.

    Cons

    Terminals division has been somewhat neglected over the years. EHS, operations all have a lot of catching up to do to meet current standards so it will take some time to see the fruits of your labor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting pressure on terminals without resourcing them properly and you could find yourself with a flight of qualified and competent people.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Stable
    -Benefits on par with anywhere else
    -Once hired, it is borderline impossible to lose a job in KM

    That's about it.

    Cons

    -Promotions are scheduled 10 years in advance. If you see a new job on the job board, chances are somebody is already picked, HR is just going through legal motions
    -A LOT of not very bright people in management just because they stuck around from the beginning and were moved up because somebody else left. Pretty much the only way to move up and is to stick around long enough until somebody leaves/dies.
    -The "we don't need a Cadillac if a Chevy would do" mentality leads to people shooting for the Yugo level of performance
    -Micromanagement is insane
    -Young motivated ambitious people leave left and right because of the "yes" man culture

    Advice to Management

    Take the inventory of your employees. By paying people below the industry average, you hire 3 people to do something that one person with proper skills can do.
