    I have been working at Expeditors full-time

    Pros

    Generous vacation time
    Opportunities to learn more on industry
    Great office culture

    Cons

    If your management doesn't envision you in a different role, no amount of hand raising, training, or talking on additional responsibility will matter.
    No flexibility on work schedule.
    No longer have healthcare fully covered by company. This was a huge appeal and now what's the appeal? You can pay for healthcare anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Start sharing your vision of your employees regularly. Don't count on them to make their own vision every time. They need your approval.
    Offer options for 4/10 work schedule.
    Pay for healthcare.
