Great company but has been bought by a competitor
Team Member (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 27, 2019
Great company with good pay, benefits, and culture. But it has been recently brought out by another company and many employees will be transferred to the new company. Work can be extremely stressful at times but my peers are quick to help and management also. Far more good days than stressful ones. Good place to work aside from the buyout and merger coming.

This company was a good place. Poor management. Management showed favoritism. HR sucks they only want to hear upper management side. Good pay though and OT if it’s busy

Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Torrance, CAJuly 18, 2019
Panalpina offers very competitive compensation and benefits to its employees. This is most likely one of it's biggest positives. It does have some very talented people working for the good of the company, but employees are denied the autonomy to get things done.

Heavy Political Machine
VP, Global Supply Chain Business Development (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 1, 2019
Recommendations by front line staff to improve operational efficiency are not taken seriously by management. Autonomy and transparency are not part of the cultural make up so customer support is impacted and front line teams are beaten down with workload and uninspired and/or uninterested in going the extra mile as it is not viewed as valuable.
Pros
Scale, network
Cons
Old world management

Socièté fragile
Agent de transit (Former Employee) –  Blagnac (31)March 14, 2019
Panalpina est un grand groupe mondial mais en France et plus particulièrement à Toulouse sa situation est extrêmement fragile.
A Toulouse la société n'a pas suffisamment de client et la rend dépendante de son réseaux monde et de quelques client qui tirent les tarifs vers le bas.
Quand j'ai été embauché, la responsable m'a caché qu'il y avait eu beaucoup de turn over, mon principal client sur le départ car insatisfait de la société et que ma principal collègue était en burn out. Résultat, seulement 3 semaines après mon arrivée ma collègue a fait un abandon de poste me laissant à gérer 2 postes et une stagiaire allemande.

Le climat était très tendu, mes journées insupportable, une responsable extrêmement stressé et jamais satisfaite la rendant plus que ingrate.
Pros
Ce, cheque vacance, ticket resto, bonne mutuelle
Cons
a peu près tout

Great Value for Employees
Customs Broker-Import Specialist (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMarch 9, 2019
Very Employee focused and good training program but have lost site of customer focus and business development. Currently trying to catchup and regrow lost business due to loose atmosphere and inefficiencies in external adherence to customers. Earlier image of indispensability had led to missed opportunities and loss of market presence. Cost cutting in important areas and bad timing of IT changes have led to bottlenecks and critical competitive difficulties. Possibility of Acquisition promising but little room for internal growth or recovery of past status or reputation.
Pros
Friendly and employee focused
Cons
Long term market follower not the leader they once were
