    An uncertain future

    I have been working at Con-way Freight

    Pros

    Great location, strong team, young blood striving to succeed

    Cons

    Moved across the country for this contract without a stipend, and on my third day on the job my boss held a meeting detailing how the project I was brought on for didn't really serve a purpose for the UX team. Constantly shifting responsibilities and unclear goals.

    I worked at Con-way Freight

    Pros

    Good wages, good benefits, strong company - doesn't lose money.

    Cons

    High pressure/stress for management employees - sometimes the "what have you done for me lately" attitude by upper management regardless of you work record and continued dependability and efficiency - it's all about the numbers whether you can control it or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Con-way has a good model but understand that there will always be ups and downs, trending, etc. that is often dependent upon the time of year and customer work cycles. Look past results of more than just a week or month but more towards a quarterly view. Con-way is a good company but tends to cannibalize their salaried people based on short-term views of results.
