environment was full of abrupt changes in direction, philosophy, and leadership
Long distance planner (Former Employee) – annonamous – February 14, 2017
I was part of a family owned, award winning agent that was looked upon as an industry leader that was bought out by the Suddath corporation. They were pretty much the Borg from Star Trek... "resistance was futile". We got to see first hand how they proceeded to dilute this A+ agent, and bring it down to their C- level. Their sub-standard contract offering chased off the elite drivers, and staff that were built over many years, and who are the lifeblood of this industry. From what I witnessed, they seem to have very abrupt changes in key leadership roles, philosophies, and direction. My position was a casualty of one of these abrupt direction changes after a whirlwind of 5 different managers in 4 years. As a corporation they do not seem able, or willing to listen to the branches, or try and adapt to different market places, and in my opinion, that is why out of 20+ agencies they only are profitable in a rare few.... just my humble opinions.
large corparation with many different job oppurtunities
