      Pros

      Pay is ok, didn’t use the benefits

      Cons

      Long hours 12 minimum 5 days mandatory weekends 4 to 6 and blame enough for everyone. Lied in the interview, the “WMS” is totally flawed even when you do everything in your power to do, the manager blames you and doesn’t accept responsibility. The manager is just buying time before the axe comes. Zero support for the supervisor. Hold people accountable, they complain then you are gone.

      Unprofessional work culture, overworked, no pay increases

      Mar 18, 2021 - Technical Program Manager

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Interesting projects, nice office and cafeteria.

      Cons

      No work life balance. No remote work or flex schedules, 8-5pm is the expectation, you are expected to share your cell phone with management so they can call you whenever they want (evenings, weekends). Managers micromanage your daily work and hold daily meetings to see what you are working on. Everything is Urgent and lacks prioritizing. Poor leadership that tolerates abrasive and unprofessional behavior. No room for advancement and zero salary growth year after year even for great performance (zero percent merit and no cost of living increases) . On many occasions , I have seen managers or senior leaders swearing/ yelling at other coworkers in meetings or the hallways. Not a very professional work environment but if you need a job or some experience, it’s a good stepping stone if you can tolerate the above mentioned negatives. Many people leave after a few years otherwise you will fall behind your peers in pay and career growth.

      Great place to work

      Pros

      Great coworkers. Involved in philanthropy. Lots of room to move around in departments. Also Persio is awesome.

      Cons

      Could just be the industry- but it is very fast paced and you have to always be paying attention. Could also have more diversity- but the trucking industry in general is geared more towards men, so I understand the difficulty in trying to recruit women to work here.
