      Pros

      I started at Expeditors shortly after finishing my undergrad. It was a great place to get started at and the company/managers helped me grow my career.

      Cons

      Wearing suit/tie to work everyday wasn't ideal.

      Pros

      Great coworkers and benefits. Management has a sincere interest in their employees.

      Cons

      Formal dress, meaning shirts and ties, dresses that must meet company policy. Example, shoulders can't be exposed. Time to get with the current dress policies of other companies. Business casual would work. Not having to get dressed up during the pandemic & requiring formal dress would be unfair at the very least. Its hard to understand this policy considering there are very few visitors to our offices. After working from home for the past 14 months at a minimum hybrid work should be an option. If returning to the office is the only option to stay employed many dedicated employees will leave if the competition offers the option of remote working. Jeff our leader is a smart guy, I hope he addresses these concerns before returning to the office. The prepandemic way of doing business is no longer, the pandemic has proven that.

      Pros

      Great Benefits for starting employees, Upward Mobility, Cross Training, Great place to start.

      Cons

      Turnover makes the job difficult for those who stay. Promotions seem more akin to cultural fit than merit base. Benefits outbalance Pay and do not keep up with long term emplyees. For example, everyone starts with 3 weeks vacation. 4th week is not earned until the 11th year.
