    I worked at World Fuel Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent (I did feel as though they used this as an excuse to pay their employees less) but expensive.

    Cons

    -ZERO work/life balance
    -work environment was poisonous and members in Management were either aware and did nothing or were part of the problems themselves
    -shows no loyalty to their employees
    -at times company would release products without offering any training and then would provide super, in-depth training on things that had no relevance to our actual job duties.
    -Old boys’ club: if you’re not in, you may as well get out.

    Advice to Management

    Your hard-working employees are literally the lifeblood of your organization and you should treasure them, develop them, genuinely care for each of them, and give them the incentives and opportunities to stay. Meanwhile, drop the dead weight, clowns, and dinosaurs/cavemen.

    I have been working at World Fuel Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed dress code
    Can work from home
     No strict hours
    Gym inside but too busy to use it
    Nice cafeteria with ping pong
    Sometime have nice parties
    Lady who does the health fairs makes it fun and lots of goodies

    Cons

    Restaurant in cafeteria is expensive
    New vending machines are overpriced
    No one respects your time off
    Vacation times are abused. People call you and email you when you’re out all the time
    IT Helpdesk doesn’t help. Always issues with computers freezing
    Managers don’t listen to complaints about really bad employees who treat others horrible
    Healthcare benefits reduced but got more expensive. Some people cannot afford to keep it
    Untrained workers
    Untrained managers with no people skills
    New programs but no training
    Too much work not enough support
    Departments do not talk to each other and repeat steps or do things that do not need to be done

    Advice to Management

    Don’t just listen to your SVPs they don’t live the day to day
    Train people for the jobs they have and cross train
    There are many horrible employees who run the office and great people awful and get away with it.
    Need better restaurant option in building. Most times cannot leave to eat but can to afford the expensive food
    Tell managers to respect time off
    Tell managers to let people take time off without penalty
    Rearrange the office so people have privacy to work everyone is so loud and cannot work
    Too many interruptions by other departments who come demanding some thing
