      Pros

      Post-covid the in-person meetings are pretty much non-existent which kinda changed the dynamic of the job. If you can get a spot at the WHQ or WTC in one of these roles you'll get a cushy cubicle job that's mostly done via email/conf calls if that's what you're looking for. Good benefits - cheap-ish insurance and they are transitioning from providing a pension to an increased 401k contribution for new employees. You put in 6%, they put in 8% instead of the old 3.5% match. If you desire it, this company is very upwardly mobile and always hiring all over the place. If not you can coast and it's damn near impossible to get fired unless you act like a complete dummy. I see both of those as pros, lol.

      Cons

      Consistent re-orgs and old-head buyouts have shifted the employees that were experts in their area out of those roles and the problems that's caused throughout the company is immeasurable - this made a lot of jobs harder and less organized. Cubicle jobs are not for everyone, but with a good attitude you'll go far in this company.

      Decent Night Shifts

      May 12, 2021 - Customs Broker in North Tonawanda, NY

      Pros

      You can listen to music as a night shift broker processing agent. Work is repetitive and simple if you like that.

      Cons

      Discouraged from talking to any coworkers unless in a leadership role. Must confirm potential processing errors daily, and arguing your case to the quality team is nigh impossible to win - just accept they think it's wrong regardless of the direction you've received, note it for the future, and move on with your life.
