    Pros

    The best reason to work for Schneider National, its a company that will help those with no experience get experience.

    Cons

    The downside of working for Schneider National is that they don't respect expert drivers and their experience.

    Advice to Management

    Good drivers are hard to find. If you find one you should bend over backward to make him or her happy. Good experience drivers don't come cheap. You get what you pay for. You pay nothing, you get nothing. Average drivers come a dime a dozen, but good drivers are few. Think about that when you are hiring new drivers.

    "A once great company on the decline"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people throughout the company that work here are some of the best you could ever want to work with. Middle management is solid for the most part (a few exceptions) and does their best to grow their direct reports. Many opportunities to learn as long as you are willing to work the extra hours to do so. Employee empowerment is generally very good.

    Cons

    Schneider is becoming a shell of the employee friendly workplace that it was 5 years ago. Now that the Schneider family seems to be content to let others run the business that bears their last name, things appear to be going downhill fast. Company has begun to communicate to its employees in sneaky methods. Good/great employees are leaving at alarming rates, adding to an already overworked staff. Morale has fallen faster than one could probably have ever imagined for such an employee-oriented company in the last five years. Communication to employees is almost nil, versus a very welcomed over-communication around five years ago. Outsourcing is creating more problems than it is solving financially. Middle management is doing their best to hang-on while it seems like upper/senior management has no clue. Project management is a mess with too many projects going all at once and all suffering as a result. Even with tough times in the industry, the company should be managing their employees much better. Morale is causing much productivity loss, worsening a bad financial situation due to the economy. Business strategy seems to shift every year and the company seems directionless as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the morale issues first and foremost! Go back to communicating with your employees. Slow down on projects and focus on the most important ones. Examine your staffing strategies (especially outsourcing) in greater detail to see if it is really creating financial benefits. Find a business strategy and stick to it for more than a year and examine any acquisitions with much care. Continue to empower the employees and middle management. Don't let the star employees of your company continue to leave! Create a *very* focused team that ensures that the business needs and what IT is working on are in sync. Carefully review if a change is needed at the uppermost level of senior management.
