Pros: Training and career development, fun co-workers, excellent health benefits, great holiday parties.
I was fortunate to work for a very forward thinking management group who believed in training and development of staff. A well trained staff can provide excellent customer service in international trade services.
My managers were my mentors and I learned so much about effective management skills from them. The hardest part of the job as a team leader was when I was promoted within the team - suddenly I was my co-workers' boss. Fortunately, I worked with a terrific team that helped ease the transition.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping staff members determine their career goals and develop performance plans to assist them. I loved promoting people!
