      Pros

      Decent 401k Good health insurance Good vacation package Not hard

      Cons

      The salary is ridiculous. Everybody complains about their salary but a lot of people stick around because they don’t know better. You will work a lot of extra hours with no pay. Pay is around 30% lower than competitors or similar companies in logistics. Bonus is pathetic and does not reflect your performance. The compensation system rewards slackers and penalizes high performers. There are a lot of people that have worked there for twenty or more years and they tell you things have to be done their way...because they said so. There is zero talk on diversity and inclusion, probably because it does not fit the company’s agenda. Lots of people are married within the company or are related to people at the company, which is weird.

      Pros

      The company cares about the employees and the environment is nice and friendly. Plenty of trainings and opportunities to learn about the business and dedicated people do receive the opportunity to grow from my experience. International setting and opportunity to also expand into different departments to improve overall business knowledge

      Cons

      Salaries tend to be somehow low , especially at an entry level. However benefits, vacation and healthcare are good.

      Pros

      its only a good place for people that needs a visa, have no aspiration in their lifes or do not have any tittle

      Cons

      nepotism, low pay, dont believe when they say there are ¨excelent growth opportunities¨ its a lie to justify their initial low salary that will be like this forever. there is no space to grow. managers ar not leaders they act as police monitoring every movement you make. people leave the company in one or two years.as no one want to stay.
