    I worked at Expeditors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    it's a job you are already all dressed up for after hours drinks

    Cons

    Talk to any of the managers and try to understand what makes Expeditors stand above its competitors - oh wait you can't. Revenues have been poor for years and the only thing propping up the company is the interest rate environment, share buybacks and incestuous culture. Management is paranoid every time an article comes out saying the same thing and affecting its stock price and actively asks people to respond to it - and it's easy to get people to do things because half the team is related or married to the other half. Read some of those comments on these articles online and you can really see how desperate the company is and how underachieving people are. This company has been circling the drain for ages and people with more than 10 years left in their careers and not related to one of the VPs are leaving. You can see in some of the other comments how the company impacts the little guy at the bottom - low pay, no increases, no OT, bad hours - all while having to pretend that you are richer than you really are at work.

    I have been working at Expeditors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people are great, health plan options (high deductible, 100% covered/low deductible, affordable), 401K match up to 3k, 120 hours of PTO, Sick Time, 2 FloaterDays

    Cons

    Low pay, tuition reimbursement isn't worth applying for it, no room for growth/advancement, a lot of nepotism in the office (sisters working with brothers, mothers with daughters, husbands with wives, etc.)
