I have been working at Pitt Ohio Express full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The Owner is a fantastic human being who really cares about every person that work for him.
Very flexible work environment ( work / life balance is exceptional)
Alot of really nice people
In most circumstances you will have a job as long as you want one and you have the opportunity to build you skills and career.

Cons

Very little leadership at the management level. Alot of people are in positions they are not qualified to fill they have just been there forever.
They really dont know what to do with high performing people. Alot get frustrated and walk out the door and no one seems to care all that much.
There are no outsiders in the management circles thus no new ideas

Advice to Management

If you want to regain your edge bring in some sharp talent from the outside to make changes in Operations. It is a very tight knit group of good old boys who have been doing business the same way for the last 30 years and a change is way overdue

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good pay. Free health insurance, and Great benefits. Home everyday. Company seems to do everything possible to avoid layoffs during periods of slowdowns. Paid vacation.

    Cons

    Little to NO retirement. Company only just began funding profit sharing again. 4% not 6 now. If on bottom of seniority its hard, or impossible to get decent vacation time. Plan on weeks in March, or Oct, Nov, or Dec, you wont see a summer vacation, Pitts vacation scheduling policy is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Better get this retirement thing figured out or you may need to look into some help wanted ads, also need to fix vacation scheduling policy so everyone can have a chance for a summer vacation to spend with their children.


  2. "Depends greatly on who your manager is"

    Pros

    100% Employer Paid Benefits, Flex Scheduling, 401 K, No Dress code, laid back culture

    Cons

    Some managers will give you instructions on how to complete a project yet when their manager is dissatisfied with it, they'll act as if they had no clue it was being done that way, even though they worked beside you on the project. Promotions are given based on favortism rather then qualifications and work ethic. Also, nothing you tell a manager here is confidential. It spreads like wildfire. Men tend to get paid a higher wage then women in the same position.

    Advice to Management

    When a job becomes available, post it everyone to apply and pick the most qualified candidate. When a employee comes to HR, all questions and concerns should be kept confidential. Have managers back up their costs vs revenue when taking on new projects. We waste alot of revenue by just doing random projects that don't benefit the company.
