Good ol' boys club meets corporate America
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Webster, TXOctober 30, 2018
This was by far the worst environment in which I have ever worked. It's like their sales reps within the Webster, TX office are still in high school with the way that they treat their colleagues - if you have a decent work ethic and/or are ambitious, watch your back. I do not mind a competitive environment, but I witnessed other employees basically ran out of the office multiple times.
Managers were more concerned with their bottom-line than rewarding employees for their hard-work.
There is career advancement opportunity if you want to play the corporate politics; but, from what I saw, the people that work here aren't worth it.
This company may as well not even have a Human Resources department because they seem to be more interested in being a part of the problem than the solution.
Pros
Good benefits, career advancement if you want to play the political game

Not worth it
Tanker Driver (Current Employee) –  Tacoma, WAOctober 29, 2018
Disappointing and hard working at night with low pay and very physically demanding with no help from dispatch or management does not feel like a work environment more like a sinking ship.

Agile Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLOctober 3, 2018
The working environment at World Fuel Services was a bit aggressive. There minimal collaboration between team members to reach a common goal but instead everyone worked independently

Left there a very long time ago. I assume much has changed.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Miami Springs, FLSeptember 4, 2018
I am not the one to ask about this. Being there since the age of 14 and spending most of my life with the company you can make your own assumptions. Hope it's gotten better in the years since I left.

Fun and productive.
Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLAugust 26, 2018
Staff motivated to exceed for the good of the company and their own. Hardest part of the job is no security; company offers temporary jobs without benefits and security.

Great people, needs work
Exposure Control Specialist / Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 6, 2018
Not a lot of room for advancement and they change the requirements for salary advancement making it nearly impossible to receive a livable wage over time. Very top heavy with too many executives and directors who do not perform any real function to the day to day management of the businss

Varied and fast-paced duties in a pleasant environment
Payment Application Specialist (Former Employee) –  Overland Park, KSJuly 20, 2018
We were extremely busy, trying to make sure all payments were applied in a timely fashion.
I learned that the Payment Application process was much more complicated than I realized when I worked there previously for 11 years (2 years as a temp and then hired in 2006) in the Credit area before I retired in 2015.
The payment application area of the company most definitely needs written instructions and/or more training in order to accomplish the goals set for them
Pros
many free lunches, seminars and activities for employees
Cons
lack of training and/or written instructions for processing payments

This was a one year contract appointment
Contract Regional Counsel, Aviation (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLJuly 5, 2018
The atmosphere was formal, busy, and strict. Turnarounds were short, and tempers flared easily.

I did a great deal of negotiations with the Middle East, and learned a lot about their culture and how they do business that only enhanced my future positions. However, sometimes decisions were made on my projects and other's projects by executives without consulting you and just telling you to change it without explanation. It was very hard to stay in touch with your own projects.

They also required keeping a journal of everything done on each project for review. It wasn't very professional, but it made employees aware that they were going to be judged daily, and they were on their toes at all times.
Pros
Gym, great cafeteria
Cons
Hard to communicate with other attorneys.

World Fuel is Barely Clinging to Life
Global Energy Solutions Manager (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 25, 2018
The World Fuel common stock price has fell from $ 60 per share to $ 20 per share - so they're really not the same company the used to be. They have fallen from the Fortune 50 list to the below the Fortune 1000 list. I understand the Board of Directors is in the process of replacing Michael Kasbar as CEO.
Pros
Compensation is great
Cons
Company always has a new vision and direction

Too many balls in the air
FP&A Analyst (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 24, 2018
the company grew by acquiring smaller companies. Integration process still painful. Company still struggles with reporting, and management wants to see.

Good Company
Mgr, Executive Compensation & Equity Admin (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLJune 17, 2018
Hard work; the rule of thumb is there’s an exception to every exception and that exception has an exception. The company departments are siloed but there are some great people to work with, if you are lucky enough to hold a role that works with other departments.
Pros
Pay, work opportunity, shared success
Cons
Leadership is often unforgiving, culture not for everyone

Lead, Application Technology Development (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLMay 20, 2018
The company is always growing and changing. Data is very important and IT plays a critical role in how well the business can leverage their data to make fast and accurate decisions.

If you are interested in taking on challenges with solving unique business requirements, this is a job for you.
Pros
Very highly skilled team

Compensation is low and raises are a joke
Credit Administrator (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLMay 17, 2018
There's a lot to dislike about WFS. For instance, there's no real teamwork despite their emphasis on teams and the overwhelming majority of the work can actually be done from home (only a few are granted this option). The biggest problem stems from compensation. It's not uncommon to hear other employees complain about being under paid. WFS does have good benefits, but the trade off is reflected in your paycheck. Also the executives aren't the smartest people resulting in declining profits year over year, which impacts raises and bonuses.

The average tenure at the organization is very close to 5 x years. People tend to stay in the organization due to a fair culture/management. This organization value loyalty and work performance.
