    Pros

    The leadership team at XPO has done an outstanding job strategically in growing the company and developing it's employees. By far, XPO is the best company I've worked for. XPO is progressive in culture and has exceeded my expectations in every aspect. I was concerned when I read a few negative reviews, but I truly believe that these employees are disgruntled and do not reflect the 99% of our workforce.

    Cons

    As with any fast growing company, there are growing pains . Management has taken a proactive approach and has done a great job with the transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! I'm excited to be part of the fastest growing company in the world!
