    I have been working at Geodis full-time

    Pros

    Fun environment. A lot of company events that "most" corporate employees are invited to. I would recommend it for some people but not all.

    Cons

    Unfortunately it seems as though too many employees here wear a size 3 hat with a size 15 boot. This coupled with an overall lack of training on management is hurting the company.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanaging is what I would say is killing certain departments in this company. Management classes are available and should be taken to learn how to be an effective manager.

    Pros

    Continuous growth on both a personal level and business level. Strong vision, goals and a strategic plan in place to become the leader in logistics

    Cons

    We could improve on communication between shifts, this will allow everyone to be aligned and consistent with delivering messages to our teams. It can get really warm in the hotter weather but GEODIS motto is safety first. We go over hydrating, take small breaks, communicate if you aren't feeling well due to the heat

    Advice to Management

    Be better communicators to your teams, this will go a long way with your leadership team if they have answers for the team and all have the same message

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about Geodis. I am 53 and Geodis is truly the BEST company I have ever worked for. Employee's are the top priority at Geodis. I was hired as an Operations Supervisor and within 9 months was promoted to Financial Analyst. 3 out of 4 of new positions filled are with current employees. I actually look forward to going to work. Geodis has 14,615 employees and over 300 facilities in the US so the career opportunities are limitless. I am currently in Brentwood, TN at our Corporate Office for training and very impressed with how they handled all of our travel arrangements and how amazing all of the Managers have been. If I wasn't already convinced of having made the right decision by coming to work for Geodis this experience would have solidified it. Truly, truly the BEST company I have ever worked for!!

    Cons

    I don't really have any Cons!

    Advice to Management

    Not really advice, but a compliment...thank you very much for making this week's training experience extraordinary!!

    I have been working at Geodis (More than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn a ton of valuable information in regards to the supply chain industry if you are open to it.

    Cons

    Over worked. 6 to 7 days a week 14 plus hour days. Not a good work life balance at all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, build a team so you can be successful as a whole. Yelling and terminating is not the way to go. Value the hard working employees that you have.

    I worked at Geodis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company now has a global presence.
    Many opportunities for networking and growth.
    Hourly associates are held with very high regard...too high, in some cases.
    SOPs and field training are exceptional in most cases.
    Company vision and operational goals are appropriate for the current market.

    Cons

    Salaried associates are omitted from most, if not all incentives.
    Human Resources was less than engaged.
    Politics and drama run amok at most sites thus, allowing less-than-qualified associates champion projects and tasks.
    Management and administrative training are minimal, at best.
    Customers are too heavily involved with operations at most sites.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more attention on your Leadership teams. The hourly associates get the work done but your Leaders are the instruments guaranteeing your success. Learning by submeraion is one thing but learning and executing successfully is astounding. Provide gratitude and recognition for hard work and investment.
