Work some, play harder should be the motto. With a rather slow development process comes a lot of waiting. Otherwise, uShip has a strong business model that is great for folks early in their career to get their feet wet. uShip shouldn't be running a great minor league team but has some trouble retaining a lot of hires. The biggest curve is learning the shipping industry. However, uShip has a knack for hiring some really smart and great people.
