    I have been working at World Fuel Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the moment there are a very few pros. It is a company full of trepidation .

    Cons

    Employees are on the edge of their seats waiting to see if the next one to go is them!
    Promised bonuses that never arrive.
    No yearly raises except management paying themselves.
    No loyalty!
    Every employee is terrified of making a mistake as it is termination of you do

    Advice to Management

    Stop the madness! Step back and focus on where the problems truly lie! Is it really the lowly , underpaid sales person ? O possibly the overpaid fat cats you have in management making poor decisions for this once powerhouse in the industry? Ask yourselves what happened?
