    Great Company with fabulous leadership

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company strives to support and engage its employees. The company is financially strong and is recognized as an industry leader that continues to grow. I have worked with many talented and dedicated people throughout the Ryder organization.

    Cons

    Comparitively, Ryder's salary for managers is lower than industry averages. Due to the nature and scope of geography, you must be willing, in most cases, to reloate to advance your career.

    Pros

    Ryder is an international public company.

    Positives:
    *Growth Opportunity
    *High level of industry exposure
    *Industry Leader
    *Good Compensation

    Cons

    Negatives:
    *Centralized hiring
    *High stress, High workload
    *Competition between departments
    *IT Infrastructure needs upgrades

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I enjoy working at Ryder. The pay is good and there is a lot of opportunity for growth. Ryder's strength is in their employees. In general, they hire highly qualified individuals that add to the team atmosphere. On the flip side, management needs to work on translating their metrics into realistic goals and action plans. The friction between departments, performance metrics, and IT infrastructure need to be examined and/or upgraded. Too much is demanded out of certain positions which makes for very high levels of stress and at times undesirable workplace atmosphere.

    Pros

    they offer great benefits, great pay. very safety oriented. they offer some sort of tuition assistance, and will contribute to your 401k even if you dont. awesome vacation time as well.

    Cons

    the only real con is that they do not have a tool allowance program, but at the competitive rates they pay it still works out. tuition reimbursement does not seem to be easily attainable for a general education, seems they only help out with courses directly related to your field of business and must be approved before you enroll in a course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    great job, only recommendation from me would be to be more flexible with the tuition assistance as it benefits both the employee and the company once the employee has completed a degree.
