    Pros

    Competitive salary and vacation, decent benefits

    Management from the top-down displays little concern for employee satisfaction with the job or workplace environment. Company culture rewards bad behavior.

    Realize that good employees aren't disposable.

    I worked at MV Transportation full-time

    Pros

    I was left totally alone to do my job correctly. I worked at my own pace and managed a division with little or no interference and was successful.

    Cons

    Too much management turn around of either leaving or changing roles. That alone created an unstable atmosphere. I never got a raise in the 5 years while I was there. ZERO communications between management and the employees. You didn't know what will happen any day.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk to your employees. Open door communication. Make sure they are happy.
