    I worked at OIA Global full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There were so many great people that I worked with. Sure some of the upper level management were not as good but I would expect that anywhere. They tried hard to make a good culture for their employees. Benefits were good and they offer parking downtown office.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up and some groups have different treatment than other groups

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent.

    Pros

    Not too long of a list

    Cons

    Management operates in a bubble, poor communication, stale environment, no training

    Advice to Management

    Start by making changes in the middle management. What do they do? No culture, definition or guidance.

    I have been working at OIA Global full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    1. Unique and interesting Portland, OR headquarters office, 2. Lower and middle level management works hard and are willing to help 3. Periodic headquarters extra curricular activities (sports, parties) can be fun, 4. Free parking and great downtown Portland location.

    Cons

    Have been here 5 years, received 1 raise. Previous top management did not care about employees but at least said they did, this management leaves no doubt. Most of my interface with top management has been insulting and dismissive, and there is little accountability if you have the right connections at OIA. If you don't have those connections, its another story. Analyst level employees are crowded together giving no... privacy at all. Same people always selected to go to annual Christmas party in Europe, employees notice it. Top management spends lavishly on themselves, but raises are very few.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more effectively down the company ladder. Take down the office mission posters, they are a source of laughs as senior management does not lead by example and we know you don't believe in the company mission. Don't make us pretend. Management has not shared their plan to grow the company with employees---leaves us with little confidence. Need more robust HR support.

    I have been working at OIA Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture from my experience has been pretty supportive so far and everyone generally seems to be in an effort to work together.

    Cons

    The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    do some market research on a lot of your current offered positions through the company and compare the what others offer in even the same industry. I think if you offered a more competitive wage in would entice better talent and retain solid employees that are currently working at the company so you can reduce the cost to retrain your workforce several times over.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Small family feel

    Cons

    Appears to be no structure for delegating work. 50-55 hr weeks have become the norm. There is no transparency at all

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Focus on employees demands of needing extra staff and do not wait 6 months to hire someone.

    I worked at OIA Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice building, downtown location. Employees are smart and personable. For the most part, you as an employee are left alone to do your work.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than the market average for IT staff, and looks like for most of the other sectors of the company as well. Constantly pleading poverty even though they have a billion dollars in revenue. Executive team wants full control of decision making process even to the point of micromanagement (as opposed to leaving it to individual departments), but refuses to take responsibility for those decisions (ie.... blame the weather, blame the client, etc). Executive team ignores directives from the parent company, and strings the parent company along (i.e. LDI wants OIA to build a "Data Analytics team" since 2017, but as of today still has not hired a single member of that 5 person team). Logistics is a competitive industry particularly now. Package design is going to become more competitive in the next year or so (just more new companies entering the field or creating their own design studios) Leadership wants more productivity, but doesn't want to fill new positions. Executive team sets priorities, then changes them, then gets mad when the original priorities aren't fulfilled.

    Advice to Management

    *This is more towards LDI, the parent company. LDI, you may want to think about starting fresh with a new executive team. Manager and employees are good, but the executive team is where all the problems seem to originate at this company.
