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

    Pros

    Pockets of very creative people, but they are beginning to lose their voice and are at risk of no longer being heard from

    Cons

    No one appears to be interested in hearing other points of view leaving the CEO surrounded by a bunch of "YES" men and women

    Advice to Management

    Do not expect to hear the truth from those you surround yourself with but seek out workers willing to be honest if you really want the truth

    I worked at Landstar System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of a good thing to say about the D.Daniels Agency of Landstar. My time there was miserable.

    Cons

    In my first week I was informed about the personal lives of everyone in the office from the owners nephew. From that point on I felt like an outsider. Not enough work and a lot of pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over.

    Fantastic company to work for. Lots of opportunities available if you're willing to put yourself out there.
    I have zero complaints.

    Cons

    Pay could alway be a little better I suppose. Really I don't have much to add on the negative side.
