If you want to make a difference in someone's life by moving something quickly from one part of the globe to the other, this is a great place to do it. That warm fuzzy feeling you get when you get a job done is irreplaceable. A typical 8 hour day will have you talking to people around the corner, to around the world, which I always enjoyed. Unfortunately, – more... with it being a global company who has a lot employers, you are replaceable. Not to say that you can't get what you want, just be ready to put on those tap dancing shoes for it. – less
