Solo un.. esta bien.
Auxiliar (Former Employee) –  Bogotá, Distrito Capital, CundinamarcaNovember 18, 2017
La empresa es de gran reconocimiento a nivel nacional e internacional (Multinacional), por lo que uno pensaría que tendría beneficios referentes a ese término. Los salarios comparativos entre carga laboral y remuneración no son equitativos. No hay beneficios adicionales; simplemente tu salario. Las instalaciones son muy viejas y oscuras, no dan ánimos para entrar y sentirse alegre.
Si existe oportunidad para ascender, pero esto requerirá que te esfuerces mucho mucho más por casi el mismo sueldo que recibías antes. Hay personas que hacen el trabajo de dos cargos y se remunera el de solo uno. Las personas no son tratadas con respeto, ya todo se vuelve un chiste. No hay un acercamiento del gerente con las demás personas y esto es de gran importancia para que todo el mundo realice sus actividades con ganas y así haya eficiencia.
Lo bueno, es parte del ambiente laboral. Muchas personas muy amables. Hay actividades que permiten el esparcimiento.

No es una mala empresa pero tampoco tan buena como dice serlo.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Bogotá, Distrito Capital, CundinamarcaJune 21, 2017
Si bien es cierto que una de las grandes cualidades de PANALPINA consiste en su estabilidad laboral y el pago muy oportuno de los salarios de sus empleados (este último no debería ser considerado un valor agregado sino un deber de la empresa), no compensa con su parte negativa.

En primer lugar, los salarios son muy bajos en comparación de largas horas de trabajo que fácilmente pueden superar las 10 horas diarias. En el caso, de quienes trabajan en el aeropuerto la situación es incluso peor. Estos últimos además de trabajar extensas horas de trabajo (que incluye en ocasiones trabajo de fuerza física, muy a pesar de no estar entre sus funciones), deben adecuarse a turnos rotativos entre día y noche, por lo que de tajo, no es posible que puedan estudiar. Ni siquiera se tiene una hora fija de entrada, la cual puede variar según lo dispuesto por el jefe de turno ya sea a las 6, 7, 10 am, 5 pm, etc. La salida peor aún, los empleados les dicen cada día a que horas entran pero no a que horas salen.

Este último no sería tan "negativo" sino fuese que para esa clase de trabajo se requiere que deba estar graduado en estudios universitarios como comercio internacional y a fines, y para ascender se requiere de estudios postgrados; por lo que en consecuencia al tener extensos turnos de trabajo y además rotativos, no se podrá realizar estudios postgrados y por tal no se podrá ascender, dejando en un limbo a los empleados del aeropuerto.

Por otro lado, para los empleados de la parte administrativa y comercial, si bien sus condiciones laborales son por lejos mejor que la de los del
  more... aeropuerto, tampoco compensa el trabajo. Los salarios son mejores pero exigen muy altos niveles de estudios pregrados, postgrados, idiomas, experiencia, entre otros, que a la final el salario realmente resulta siendo muy bajo al perfil del empleado. No obstante, es de aclarar, que estos empleados si tienen mayores oportunidades de ascender al permitirles estudiar por tener horarios fijos, aunque si con extensas horas de trabajo.

Panalpina no es una empresa mala y el ambiente laboral suele ser relativamente bueno, y puede ser ideal para aquellos que sean conformes con un trabajo fijo a costas de extensas horas de trabajo, sin poder estudiar ni avanzar profesionalmente (dependiendo de si trabajas en la parte del aeropuerto o en administrativa o comercial) Pero para aquellos que busquen crecer profesionalmente, que busquen un mejor desarrollo profesional y personal, quizás se lleven una decepción, y deben optar por buscar otro horizontes, o una empresa con mejores garantías.

Imports (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 5, 2017
I came into this company with high hopes. The pay was very low to begin with but they promised I would be compinsated with bonuses and raises. After a few years prooving my worth time and time again they have not delivered on their promises. They con you into working harder and longer. There is no work life balance. They hire managers with no experience therefor you are on your own. And if you fail because they can't help you they blame you.
There is minimal training yet they expect you to know everything.
There is extreme favoritism. If you are on the "naughty" list you will never get off.
They are not up to date on their systems. They are constantly changing procedures.
They do not advance their people but instead use the promise to advance to get more out of them with no end game. When you ask about your future there they say that you don't put in enough overtime to be considered but you get in trouble when you do have overtime.
Pros
You do get a paycheck
Cons
You lose your life and self esteem
