      Pros

      To see reviews in Glassdoor I am forced to sign on and leave a review. Clearly this site is a scan and inaccurate since we are coerced into writing something

      Cons

      Why would Glassdoor force us to write something to just read reviews? Why the abysmal waste of time?

      Pros

      Secured job for about next 30-40 years Great team on the floor. Real warehouse operations with cool products and stuff

      Cons

      Management treats people as tools, business needs way above people needs. You are supposed to comply to any changes of your working schedule even if it's huge amount of overtimes, including regularly working on the weekends.

      Pros

      Very stable. Great work life balance. A good place to retire to cushy job. Diverse businesses. Complexity of tasks is above average due to business interdependences and the number of parallel projects.

      Cons

      Red tape is everywhere. Everything requires approval by several people. Very conservative.
