      Good company to work for, but my position lacked vertical growth.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Management that is easy to talk to and down to earth. I very much enjoyed my time here, and they treat their employees incredibly well. Although my time here was short-lived and I didn't get to experience any of it, there are yearly employee trips and gatherings that sounded like a lot of fun. I worked in the headquarters which although did seem a bit outdated was currently going through renovations which I did not see completed so I assume the outdated complaint is no longer the case.

      Cons

      Fantastic company to work for, and has great management but the specific position I was hired for lacked vertical growth. The position I was hired for was a great stepping stone to another place, but I would have loved to stay if given the opportunity to grow within the company. If given a position that has this opportunity, I highly recommend Estes Express Lines. The receptionist at headquarters is very reserved and never seemed to want to have a conversation, but that's just a personal gripe.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Pay and decent benefits -Friendly staff -High employee engagement -Good work/life balance if you choose to have it despite peer pressure - Promotion opportunities

      Cons

      -Entirely behind-the-times technology-wise. No remote work technology to speak of, and many employees are using their own computers and phones - Very little/no clarity on corporate policy or org chart available - Company culture is very conservative from dress code, to religious literature inside the headquarters, to expectations for employees - Corporate strategy, expectations, and updates are poorly communicated to staff (due to silo-ing or lack of communication avenues) - Peer pressure to work outside regular hours. Workday started at 8:30 am despite being told 9-5 during interview process - Rude management abounds and often told how sexist the company was
