    I have been working at Geodis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job keeps me challenged. With the OHL merge challenges keep mounting

    Cons

    Poor upper OHL management skills, little communication with new upper management.
    Sadly most Geodis legacy employees have been laid off or resigning, there are very few left. Little balance between work and home life.

    Advice to Management

    To OHL US management, remember we are all one team. Much more communication needed from upper management down thru the branch management. Too many report reminders, too many web conference trainings. Little feed back from web conference trainings and little back up material

    I worked at Geodis full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People, not including upper management

    Cons

    Pay, benefits, caring for emps, too much work, not enough people, always in budget crunch, no give back to emps, lack of culture, low moral, no leadership presence.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees, from the top down. Stop acting like emps should be happy just to have a job and that is their only perk working for the company.

    I have been working at Geodis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job where I can make some money to pay my expenses

    Cons

    If you like to work and love to work and travel.. this job is great for you. Me on the other hand, I enjoy coming home to my family after an 8 hour day. Working for Geodis, this is not possible. I work about 10-12 hour days and weekends and if that wasn't enough, they have us travel to other warehouses for "training" that can be done online.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the employees in your warehouses - we work hard and in the end we get punished by having to work long hours, weekends and having us travel for work (not for pleasure). Minimize Geodis' travel expenses by creating online training portals and understand the warehouse folks also want to get home after an 8 hour shift just like the folks in the corporate offices. I also believe they do not work weekends thus why should we? Notice the workload on all the warehouses. It is much easier to make a "list" of things to be done rather than understanding that many of these deadlines put into place are unobtainable, hence why there has been more overtime hours and weekends worked.
