    Pros

    There is TONS of education available, and product certifications promoted. The team mates work closely together for resolution of solutions.

    High pressure to answer questions quickly by management. They will point out if you get out of your chair too often.

    Employees are humans, too.

    Pros

    great co-workers (with a few exceptions). Camaraderie between team members

    Cons

    Mid level management is just horrible. Constant politics. More than 50% of people that have been there longer than 10-15 years have extremely outdated skill set and are just awaiting retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize folks that actually perform and not the ones that have been there the longest. Eliminate red tape

    Lots of opportunities for OT and is good for Christmas. All benefits are available but expensive. 401k match is not always available. My manager will work around my doctors appointments and kids events.

    Cons

    Clear favoritism on all levels. Some people work less hours because they can give management a story, or if management likes you. Little room for growth and career advancement. Non existent work life balance. Short notice if you have to work weekend.

    Recognize those who work hard. Stop overworking the hard working employees.

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to other companies

    Cons

    I believe the company itself is good but the IT Web development department is awful. There is no such thing as work/life balance. The culture is so bad that a lot of people have left. The team is probably less than half of what it should be. The only people are there who cannot afford to leave - e.g. people with h1b's. The problem really started when a new leader started heading the department 3-4 years. The leader along with handpicked managers changed the culture for worse. They may not be with the company anymore but that is the thing with culture; people are long gone but the culture lives on.

    Advice to Management

    There is just TOO MUCH politics at the middle management. The company does not make any product. It has its system/logistics and employees who make things happen. Without its people, the company won't succeed. So, please afford the respect your non-managerial employees deserve.

  8. "Ok but not great place to work"

    Pros

    Seemingly stable, Independent working; no micro-management. ok pay, good hours (no weekends). Good to put on resume.

    Cons

    Horrible communication, demanding logistics center managers that do not seem to know what is going on or the jobs of their workers. LC management always in meetings and socializing too much. Too many social events inside and outside of work, political environment.

    Lots of blaming others; not taking responsibility for actions. Compensation is ok, but benefits are horrible and company is cheap when it comes to technology/equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Please lessen the politics and get more involved on what is actually going on in your center.
