      I worked at SIRVA full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      18 days of PTO thats about it.

      Cons

      Pay, Benefits, Work Culture, Lack of Management training and accountability. Politically driven group. No career growth. No raises. Performance is based on a collective, if your on the low end of the pole your the scapegoat. 12 work days ranging from early in the am to late in the pm. Simply put, you do not get what you put in!

      Advice to Management

      First hire and promote qualified people instead of the people inside your social group that frequent the same the bar each week. Train the people you hire for management so they dont create situations where managers fail customers then shift the blame onto their underlings. Start practicing equality and appreciating your employees of all views and backgrounds or people will continue leaving. Hold managers accountable...

      I worked at SIRVA full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      If you have a great team, you are lucky.

      Cons

      Mgmt. and execs are people who do not know what the actual consultant role entails, the company is full of lazy people higher up on six figures who get away with doing a minimal amount of work. They are threatened by real talent, nepotism is rife, if you are terrible at your job but have friends in the right place, you will be promoted no matter how bad you are. There is a scape goat culture, execs lie about the services...

      Advice to Management

      There are too many incompetent staff higher up that need to be let go, recognize bullies and reprimand them, protect the employees who do actual work that generates revenue.

      Advice to Management

      Stop selling things that ops can’t provide Find a better balance for employees vs workload so you’re not always hiring and firing to maintain revenue Allow managers to manage their teams rather than spend time in sales or on in exec meetings
