Pros

Dynamic & challenging organization - recent acquisitions have provided tremendous growth opportunities for Con-way's stock and employees. No two days are ever the same...in a good way.
Doug Stotlar is a strong, big picture leader with a level of integrity that is unheard of at that level. He is genuinely interested in getting to know employees. He devotes a full weekend to "talk shop" with the employees who are selected as CEO Constellation winners - an award given to a select group of employees who exhibit Con-way's core values day in & day out. Doug not only shares his vision with them, but solicits and LISTENS to their concerns, ideas, and questions about the company.
Con-way's total rewards package - benefits & compensation - is one of the best in the industry, if not corporate America.

Cons

Tenure of many senior leaders creates pockets of "we've always done it this way" & resistance to change. I don't think Con-way can consistently be a leader in transportation and logistics when many of the leaders have spent their entire adult working lives in this organization. Con-way needs to continue to bring in senior leaders from other industries and competitors to ensure we are looking at best practices, not just traditional practices.
For many years, employees who were willing to devote their every waking moment to Con-way and be a "yes man" were the individuals who were rewarded and promoted. This mentality still exists in some pockets of the company.

    Safe, conservative, friendly place to work (but not real exciting).
