    I worked at MIQ Logistics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere which made work pleasurable. Good team environment to cross-train within the team and work out solutions for different problems occurring on a daily basis. Relatively good health benefits.

    Cons

    There was not enough room for growth and development to move onto a different and more responsible role within the company. Salary in comparison to other companies within this industry was too low.

    Advice to Management

    Salary raises for employees to keep inflation and the costs of living. For the past few years there were no raises in salaries even thought Chicago branch was doing extremely well financially.

    Pros

    MIQ is a flat organization and very entrepreneurial. The sales commissions are uncapped, so if you work hard the pay can be very lucrative. Not everyone succeeds in that type of work environment. The benefits are good and if you want to grow in your career the management is very helpful. The leadership has high integrity and I am able to stand behind what I sell, which is very important to me. I think work-life balance for sales is outstanding.

    Cons

    Not every office has a great team, there are lots of bright spots around the country, but like any large organization there are weak links. The nature of a logistics company is sometimes you have to control costs, and not all levels of employees are compensated at the highest levels.

    Advice to Management

    Try to incentivize the operations team more, give them more of an equity share in what they do, to help motivate performance.

    The environment here is great. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I have been working here for a little over 6 months now and I'm still learning new things all of the time.

    Since you are working in relation with customs, you dont have many holidays off.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more direct instead of temp work.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent. Financial backing from their venture capital firm is solid and invests well into the company. We will have to see how long this will last.

    Cons

    Horrible working environment in the Gardena office. Everyone gossips on each other and it is freely accepted in this office. Management is only concerned about themselves and has no respect for sales people. They are only interested in your database of customers that you add in CRM. The venture capital firm will eventually be flip this company to make a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Human Resources needs to step in and stop the gossiping in their offices. It brings down morale and harbors a very hostile working environment.

    I have been working at MIQ Logistics full-time

    Pros

    Immediate supervisor was very lenient, supportive and available when assistance for employees was needed.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay for related field. Majority of coworkers exhibit rampant laziness, executing at most the bare minimum productivity relative to their position. Employees typically fail to take into consideration those working shift prior/after theirs; coordinated teamwork and directed contribution are nearly nonexistent. Upper management is for the most part disconnected from the lower echelon areas of operation. Ridiculous degree of turnover, with management's failure to address the causes for such; solutions involve primarily hiring temps to cover gaps in shifts which further tenders disorganization and inability for effective operation.

    Advice to Management

    Take serious consideration into reevaluating your business model. Structures that corrode at the base and left unaddressed greatly diminish future prospects and longevity.

    Pros

    Enjoy the employees and they are down to earth and easy to talk with. Good location for the corporate headquarters. Lots of diversity in various jobs if you want to learn a lot of different job roles.

    Cons

    Raises if anything are very small. Have to fight for a raise and they are not provided. No performance bonuses. The benefits aren't too bad but they dont offer tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with the people more and end the rumors. Offer incentive programs to the employees so they will work harder and provide a better product. Replace key positions when people resign from the company. It seems like nobody is getting replaced therefore more people quit due to this and it hurts the company more by loosing quality talent. Have more company sponsored events.
