    Pros

    Freight IT division is making steps to move away from old IT systems to modern alternatives. Some packages are being used to replace homegrown systems. New technology is being evaluated to and tested to eventually replace core competency applications that allow the freight division to optimize operation and pricing performance.

    Cons

    Very competitive business that often drives careful prioritization of projects. IT shop knows the business very well, and is often called on to help reenginer business processes and the systems that support them on quick timelines.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Con-way Enterprise Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young people do get advancement opportunity, there is result sharing, but it is highly variable depending upon profitability (do not make it a consideration in salary negotiations).

    Cons

    8am-5pm mentality. Other than IT, everyone has to be in the office. A lot of discomfort about telecommuting. Zero employee retention concern. The turn over is "extremely high", resulting in training and retraining....with little improvement. No 401k match, no tuition reimbursement, no sick days (use your vacation for sick time).

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on employee training, young people need development as well, no just promotion. Provide resources for employees and improve your benefits. Lucky to be in Portland, where not a lot of corporations are headquarterered, otherwise, would be very low on employment preference list.

    Pros

    - Great co-workers - wide variety of interesting assignments - opportunity for advancement, i.e. hard work is recognized.

    Cons

    - Outsourcing of infrastructure has slowed implementing changes, and has a negative impact on development groups

    Advice to Management

    "Buy, don't build" is NOT the answer for all new applications.

    Pros

    A company that truly values its employees. A great place to grow your career.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has impacted both efficiency and effectiveness of infrastructure IT and other administrative functions.

    Advice to Management

    Infrastructure IT would have clearer direction if it were better aligned with business unit objectives.

    Pros

    Many Excellent highly motivated coworkers,.many with decade's of experience. Many interesting projects, many technically challenging projects. Good esprit d'corps, although not what it once was.

    Cons

    Prior CIO outsourced operations infrastructure, which coat over two hundred jobs, and slowed rate of change and hurt morale. Development is now more of a "buy & configure" vs. "Build in house".

    Advice to Management

    "Buy vs build" question should be asked on every project, because buy is not a universally correct answer. Talented development staff should be nurtured, rewarded, and recognized..


  11. Excellent place to work.
