    I have been working at Kuehne + Nagel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some minor benefits, fair contract and work environment

    Cons

    Work is terribly organized, responsibility is tossed around like a hot potato. Having an insight of how things work on larger scale I am surprised that company did not fall apart long ago. Company is using faulty system that they created and for years refusing to let go of it and keep wasting money on its updates that always mess some options! People have little knowledge of processes and system, who knew something left company and you have to beg for basic trainings which no one can provide!

    I worked at Kuehne + Nagel for less than a year

    Pros

    Good working environment and nice team to work with. Sales are very busy meeting the customers, team members don't spend a lot of time at the office. Actually I feel like only interns and sales supports stay at the office in the afternoon. You will find that team members always missing and have to call the sales that you support if you have any question about preparing quotation sheet. Feel free to ask. Team members are kind and helpful. They will make sure you are familiar with everything.

    Cons

    BTW as I mainly did was to support a key account manager, I also worked partially as a sales support. It is not easy to communicate with the operation team as they will assume that you know everything. As sometimes people from other team don't reply you in a very fast speed, I came downstairs for finding that specific person in the op team for client's inquiry once. What you mainly do for your daily work is create quotation sheet, update the latest rate, send emails to all the pricing team and check emails everyday. Highly repetitive work. The pricing team will reply in a very low speed that the client might not wait for that much. Sometimes just sit there and wait forever. The inner system is not easy to deal with. Make sure to work hard on the training sessions. A large company in this industry but not well-known outside.

    I have been working at Kuehne + Nagel full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A stable work environment, good structure around working practices, variety in types of customer and projects.

    Cons

    Conservative approach to almost everything, it takes a long time for things to change. As with logistics generally, often a long way behind in terms of technology.
