    I have been working at XPO Logistics full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity is everywhere at XPO you can transfer between divisions . If you want to relocate you can move with a job waiting for you. Just come to work and do your job and you will be appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    We still have some upgrades to do in the LTL division as far as IT goes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to respect employees and keep XPO a union free company.

    16+ years of employment with XPO Logistics, and hoping for many more. Exciting environment, great people and a winning team!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path! You have built a great company and there is more work to be done.

    I have been working at XPO Logistics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    XPO people have the kindest, most sincere spirit I've encountered in any workplace. I've worked at companies that make a lot of noise about how great their culture is, but XPO doesn't have to tell you, because they show you. Management makes a point of frequently and specifically praising you for accomplishments, and coworkers are quick to cheer each other on.

    Cons

    I have to stretch to even list anything. XPO is very large and is changing a lot, so you have to be willing to explore and build your own internal network. If you aren't comfortable with working in a changing environment, it might not be best for you, but if you are OK with it, you'll find that you're given a lot of leeway to help shape XPO's future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on! I don't know how you've achieved such a natural, positive atmosphere, but you've got lightning in a bottle. As long as you keep trusting your people and avoid becoming too controlling, I think you'll keep this wave going for a long time.

    Pros

    Relentless focus on continuously delivering customer delight.

    Cons

    There are no cons to highlight

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus and invest in the company that has been formed to this point, delivering integrated supply chain solutions to our customers and driving back office synergy and efficiency. Take a close look at internal candidates for leadership positions across the company before looking outside.

    Great developmental opportunities and very hands on. It’s a fast paced environment, so you’re always on the move. Have a lot of corporate support and big on employee relations/engagement.

    Benefits are amazing! PTO is amazing!

    The fast pace keeps you moving and may cause some to burn out - just depends on how you balance the work.

    Pros

    Our environment is fast paced and that can be challenging, but it is never dull. And that leads to opportunities to advance at XPO. I always feel like my voice is heard by our leadership.

    Cons

    We're in logistics. This isn't a slow paced - kick back and relax business. Come to work, work hard, and reap the rewards!

    Advice to Management

    You've done a great job in listening to your people - via workplace, via town-halls, and surveys. Keep it up!
