    Too many top executives looking at numbers, not at the actual operation.

    Pros

    Pay is ok..I love the family feel. Get to know people personally.

    Cons

    Too much upper management. They like to micro manage by running reports. They give the same goals to alll Service Centers, regardless of size and miles that need to be traveled.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with Scorecards. I would love to go back to being praised for great profits, and talking about positive things, instead of feeling beat down everyday.

    Pros

    Con-way offers impeccable training, great networking opportunities, significant opportunities for the development of transferable skills, great opportunities for advancement if one is of a certain demographic, a free on-site doctor and RN, a strong Management in Training program, the "Alpha" Program, and sustainable/efficient/"thin" operations that provide significant job security.

    Cons

    Con-way's pitfalls include below-average salaries; backward, conservative culture (slowly progressing); the "old guard" of "good ole' boys;" lack of advancement opportunities for women; lack of commiserate compensation for highly skilled and educated employees; an acute focus on "seat time" and tenure instead of skills, ability, potential, and results; lackluster healthcare and insurance at certain divisions; and the lack of a tuition reimbursement program for both undergrad and graduate degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Develop an advantageous tuition reimbursement program; recruit and adequately compensate young, intelligent, and capable college graduates to train and retain; Improve transparency and flow of information; focus on creating a lean culture based on trust, respect, education, and open communication; improve talent development and create career paths for elite, young employees; improve retention of valuable young employees; allow employees to gain experience and exposure through lateral and vertical career moves; reward top performers instead of focusing on salary equality for all, regardless of skill, education, experience, and performance; and embrace technology.
