    I have been working at INTTRA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are amazing, great benefits, growing company.

    Cons

    too many leaders and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    There is a disconnect at the top level and many times directions come from different leaders and they are not all on the same page.

    I have been working at INTTRA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Business casual attire (some people even wear shorts)
    - Ample parking including an underground parking garage
    - On-site cafeteria.
    - Interesting work in cool technologies.
    - Opportunity to learn new stuff.
    - Coworkers are smart, friendly, and dedicated to getting the job done. While all companies have politics, Inttra seems to have less of it than most.
    - Small company means that you will affect the bottom line: you get to make a difference!
    - Free foods at seemingly random times. You just pop into the kitchen area and oh, look: pizza! Or cake! Or sandwiches!
    - Ample opportunity to learn new things.

    Cons

    - Changing technologies can make some people uncomfortable.
    - Company is understaffed in some areas, resulting in occasional long hours.
    - Growing pains as the established culture acclimatizes to new best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you're doing seems to be working, so keep up the good work.

    Pros

    INTTRA is a world leader in its industry and a true global company, but it's small in size (roughly 200 people). It's nice to work in an environment where you are doing things that impact ocean shipping all over the world, without the frustrating politics and bureaucracies of larger companies. The people are really cool here, it's a relaxed work environment, and you can wear jeans every day (my favorite).

    Cons

    As a relative startup, the company is still going through some growing pains - but it's a financially stable company that's a world leader in its space.

    Advice to Management

    A little telecommuting would be nice : )
