    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.

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

    Pros

    XPO is an amazing company. Have worked at lot of fortune 100 companies including Goldman Sachs, GE that serves as a baseline. XPO takes care of their people in every way. Very impressive offices, with all the comforts. Strong corporate structure and Entrepreneurship opportunities. Good, transparent leadership.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but not a lot of handholding if you are a slow learner. XPO expects top-tier, smart work from every employee. If you want to move up, you will have to earn it - nothing will just fall in your lap here. XPO is truly results driven organization.

    Advice to Management

    Better bonus strategy and transparency to employees.

    Let's engage our employees with events OUTSIDE the workplace! Thanks!
