ICS... potential for growth but need to strengthen foundations

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros- Huge growth opportunity in ICS (both as a division and for employees)
- Ability to find opportunities in field branches across the US (new branches opening every year)
- Solid benefits
- Young, vibrant, and fun culture
- Upper management, led by CEO John Roberts, has a great vision of how to improve JB Hunt services, increase market share, and continually grow JB Hunt as one of the top-quality transportation providers and consultants in the industry

Cons- Your success and earnings is largely based on what branch you are assigned to. If you are assigned to a branch with poor leadership/management, this will be evident in the teams attitude, numbers, and productivity, which will directly impact your personal success and earnings. The same productive employee may flourish or fail depending on which branch he/she happens to be assigned to
- Reviews are often delayed by managers
- Compensation is not properly tiered for employees with various productivity (top performer versus average performer)

Advice to Senior Management- Recognize your star performers and future leaders and compensate them properly. This is critical if ICS is to continue its long-term grown and success. Invest more in your people (not across the board necessarily but for those that are the most productive) and reap the benefits of higher returns. Slack on this investment and the future may hold stagnant growth due to the cost of rehires and lowering the bar for talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
