    I have been working at Suddath Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family culture. Always looking to innovate and grow. Don't lose the close knit feeling and culture. The company's culture is so important.

    Cons

    Lots of changes right now. There are not really many negatives to list which is a huge compliment for a company that has been around a while.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication and transparency.

    Pros

    Great managers when came on board but they all are gone now. Loved how it used to be a family environment

    Cons

    Company has too many structural and managerial changes now and high risk of layoffs. Many employees in fear. Hopefully layoffs are done now.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the employees that helped with success

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

    Pros

    The company is privately owned by the Suddath family, who from an altruistic standpoint is quite beneficial for many of their indigent employees. They provide free food for their employees in the morning and if you have a relative that works here, you are a shoe-in for a job.

    Cons

    This is a moving company and has trouble competing except in a few niche markets. It continues to shut its doors in many markets and out of 21 locations only 5 are operating at a level that is considered 'distinguished'. For true transportation professionals this is essentially the bottom rung on the industry ladder. Total time warp to the previous century with regard to philosophy, technology and progressive managerial acumen. If you are specifically educated you will find that you are in the minority. A poor culture where many of the incumbent employees feel they are too important to reply to an email, phone call or other forms of communication. In my short tenure at this company (less than a year) there were three layoffs and after being exposed to the process, it became quite apparent this company is one big fiefdom. If you are young and educated don't waste your time at this company.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs an entire makeover of its culture - get the professional help before its too late.

    Pros

    You'll make a decent pay but only for a short time between May and August. It definitely is a good side job but look for other work and do it temporarily

    Cons

    Unequal pay, Inconsistent hours, and common sense training.

    Advice to Management

    Account for hours correctly with EIP and make work consistent. Create career path for employees who are interested. Stop giving the front office all the benefits of Suddath culture.
