    Pros

    Great benefits, Dr office on site and is free if you have company benefits. New gym. Cafe that offers Starbucks. As long as you work your hours and get the job done nobody bothers you.

    Cons

    Whoever posted recently in AP about the dept working effectively obviously does not work in AP. Majority of team have left and nobody is being hired to feel these spots. Overworked and stressful. Not enough time in the day to complete day to day tasks effectively . So many have left the company. Not the same work moral it once was

    Advice to Management

    Fill positions where needed. Your people are drowning and nobody is paying attention. This will overall impact the company.

    Pros

    -Opportunity for growth
    -Constant challenges to develop on a professional level
    -Wonderful people to work with
    -Accessibility of high-level staff

    Cons

    -Traditional work hours (would love to see opportunities to do 4-10hr shifts or 1 day remote to promote shifting workplace trends and GREEN initiatives for corp staff)

    Advice to Management

    -More opportunities for departments to cross-train
    -Consistent leadership development programs
    -Specific, formal, and consistent kudos to celebrate departmental and individual successes, not only overall GTZ success (i.e. Department/Employee of the month, gift cards, internal email highlighting good work from a certain team/dept, etc)

    Pros

    CEO and SVP of Carrier Relations are awesome to be around and work with
    Company is bound to grow because of investment into technology
    Plenty of room for growth career wise

    Cons

    Executive Management is not around due to travel
    Low pay
    Lots of micromanagement from Operations

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere and culture with competitive pay and benefits. The company has multiple opportunities for carrier advancement and as long as you are willing to put in the work and time it won't go unnoticed. Everyone in the Accounts Payable department works as a team and considers each other family. Even though everyone has different levels of responsibilities, they're always willing to help each other out. Potlucks, outings, holiday celebrations and company parties are one of the many other benefits that make working for GlobalTranz that more enjoyable!

    Cons

    Overall, a great company to work for as it continues to grow. If you're looking for a fast pace environment that challenges you to work harder and learn new skills, GlobalTranz is the place to be!

    I worked at Globaltranz full-time

    Pros

    Great hard working good natured employees.

    Cons

    An executive team that lacks integrity and fosters a toxic culture and environment through disingenuous practices.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lay off an entire department claiming that you are moving the positions out of state and then re-post the available position(s) for that same instate location a week later. These types of ongoing unscrupulous acts undermine the hard work and motivation of the employees and the managers working for you that have been fighting to repair the bad reputation you have created. Rather than continue to repeat your intention to increase transparency in an effort to regain trust of the staff, try incorporating honesty into your routine.

    Pros

    The employees, anyone below manager, are amazing to work with! Felt like they were a family away from home which was fantastic!

    Cons

    Favoritism is very famous here. They also have too much politics going on. Executives against lower positioned employees. Also do too much gossiping within the executives about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the politics from the company. Executives do their jobs, employees do theirs and I think this place would do great. Also cut down on the favoritism and gossip, it's not worth it. People just want to do the job and go home. ALSO, Some people are NOT replaceable.
