    Pros

    Nice people, nice functions, opportunity to travel, easy to advance.

    $500 deductible for benefits, bonuses are not guaranteed, and they fire people for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Treat US employees as well as German and South American employees. That's why you lose young talent.

    Pros

    Sr. Mgt is very strong and it's a great place to gain experience.

    Cons

    HR, outdated systems and they don't pay well

    Advice to Management

    The HR dept. doesn't manage their human resources, it seems they would rather replace than retain talent. Stop letting them have input in the business operations!

    Pros

    Strong in reefer and perishable commodities, North to South trades with focus on personal and friendly customer service. Great colleagues and good personal benefits package.

    Cons

    Sometimes lacks management direction and the business model does not always work for a global strategy when each area is left to focus on their own strengths rather than the group as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Better structure at senior management level is required to link between the board and country managers in order to implement clear business strategies which will work as a whole rather than each country focusing only on it's export volumes.
