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

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind really.

    Cons

    It's all about management. They all get preferential treatment, while regular employees get second rate treatment. They segregate management from the commoners. Pay is minimal and there is no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management. It's a good ol boys group there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at GEODIS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay was decent for an entry level position.

    Cons

    The management team treated the employees as though they were trash. You feel like a number immediately. The hours suck. You aren't given realistic expectations of work/ life balance when you are hired. Its just another crappy warehouse where they work you to death until you quit and they replace you immediately with some other poor soul who will end up just like you.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better.

    Pros

    Ease of flexibility with your schedule

    Cons

    Work life balance is nonexistent

    Advice to Management

    Operations cannot be allowed to do whatever they want. HR is always the last to get help and the least paid.

    I worked at GEODIS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great team with a decent work life balance. Reported to a good manager, but leadership above was too important to acknowledge anyone’s existence except their own.

    Cons

    Leadership turn over was bad. Compared to other tech firms 12 days PTO with no sick days was substandard. Was made to pay for my own travel and then get reimbursed.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within, standardize promotional requirements. Mandate internal growth.
