Does World Fuel Services offer parental leave?

Pros

Depending on your manager, you can learn a lot. Good work life balance (depending on your manager). HR rapport is generally good.

Cons

Culture- CEO is constantly coming up with new projects for HR that always start and never finish. HR has had so many great initiatives that never go anywhere. HR has never had any clear goals which trickle down to HR leadership. Culture - HR - HR is very reactionary always putting out fires for leadership. HR is never working on finishing initiatives. No initiatives directly impact employee population in a positive way. I.E. working to get better benefits (work from home policy, maternity leave, overall cost of health insurance). HR teams are disbursed and rarely work together well. Different rules depending on manager (IE - some managers allow work from home while others look down upon it). Salary- employees with the same titles and job responsibilities have salary ranges that are very far apart ($15k-$20k difference). HR leadership does not communicate with HR employees as much as they should. Most HR leadership are not tech savvy and have very regressive HR values.

Advice to Management

My advice to HR Leadership is to make time for your actual HR employees instead of focusing on the needs to segment leaders. That is not to say that the needs/goals of the segments are not important. It is to say to focus on the goals of HR as a whole and work on initiatives that will directly impact most of the employee population positively. Most initiatives that do end up getting done only impact employees who directly contribute to the company’s revenue, which is not fair to all other employees. Another piece of advice is to start focusing on current HR trends that will directly impact the quickly growing workforce of millennials. Their values are very different than the baby boomer generation. Any fortune 100 company would be preparing for that to stay competitive.

Pros

Good company, great benefits, wellness program amazing.

Cons

Managers have no sense of what their employees do, does not understand true duties, assumes its the same for everyone in department and it is not, does not listen, condescending, no respect for work done.

Advice to Management

Please take the time to listen to your employees, they are the ones doing the work. It is absolutely not all "delegating" at times you must understand what the job entitles and what exactly they are doing in order for you to truly understand their duties, especially when you are managing more than one person supporting different departments.

Good company, great benefits, wellness program amazing.
