    Pros

    Coming from a small business background, I was not used to the corporate environment. Suddath has a culture that is accepting and friendly. Everyone knows each other's name and actually makes eye contact and says 'hello' in the halls.

    Cons

    It's a long commute for me personally, but worth it.

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours - they don't hound you if you show up a couple minutes late. They provide continental breakfast 4 days a week.

    Cons

    Very old school. Necessary changes take FOREVER to occur because it has to go through management. People are being let go with no replacement. Being overworked with little pay increase.
    Every year after peak season is over, there's "firing" season and everyone on high alert on who will be let go.
    No real solutions are given. Just treatments to the symptoms

    Advice to Management

    No need, they won't listen

    Pros

    None. Horrible company. They make you do the job of three people and do not compensate you. Male employees make more than female employees on the exact same position.

    Cons

    Spiraling down since Brannigan took over. Shame to see what once was a decent company go downhill like that. Leaving soon.

    Advice to Management

    They don't listen. HR doesn't listen and will respond to this post saying something "we want to hear from you, please email us at xyz".

    I worked at Suddath Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and comraderie for special events (Halloween, Jaguar games, etc.)

    Cons

    Severely underpay employees. Atleast in the lower tier positions

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with your employees. Know that they do not make as much as your, and also know that they know that. There must be a common level of respect for each other in order to execute the job.

    Pros

    This is a growing and progressive company that has been around for quite a while. Although it is a bit top heavy, there are plenty of avenues to advance.

    Cons

    Lower paying compared to similar organizations, high stress during peak moving season, and lots of meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the next level of managers, and quickly.

    Pros

    Loved the company. Lived and breathed it up until the day they sold it.

    Cons

    Communication and ability to stay with the company was poor. Culture was great at one time and became too big to maintain. no voice in the organization at any level. dictatorship that squashed improvement ideas. Not focused on quality on any level internally or externally. Really struggling.

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees help you make a difference.

    Pros

    This is a fun environment--we celebrate people, employee appreciation week, our football teams, and busy peak times with food and fun. My manager is open to my ideas for change. I have worked for Suddath for a long time and have seen how they have progressed. Lots of changes over time but that's what happens when you are a growing company.

    Cons

    There is a peak season that requires a lot of the business pushed in over 4 months. This can be hectic but the company pulls together to get the deadlines met.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun environment and the weekly messages from the CEO. It helps to know what's happening in all the different locations across the country.
