    I worked at A & A Contract Customs Brokers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A&A is a company where what people do matters and they take care of each other. I felt welcome since the very first day I stepped in and people put a lot of effort to make me feel integrated to the team quickly. The teammates would stick together to solve problems and I always had someone willing to help at any time I needed. Great place to develop new skills as you will be encouraged to work with many different departments. Managers and Supervisors will give you autonomy to do your job and will give feedbacks regularly. You will be encouraged to study and improve your own skills through specific courses and books available for all employees. You can talk to everyone frankly, from your immediate manager to the CEO. Friendly and respectful work environment.

    Cons

    The work can be repetitive and boring sometimes. The training can be better designed, at the beginning felt a little lost with so many procedures and little guidance. You will be dealing with some very time sensitive matters that can be stressful. The operational system is outdated but it will be replaced soon.

    Advice to Management

    The most valuable asset A&A has is the people that are working there. They give everything for the company. Management keep up the good work you have done to make these people feel happy and proud of themselves.
