Pros

co-workers are great, immediate management is good, health benefits are good for a family

Cons

salary is lower here than other parts of the country due to a bit lower cost of living, benefits are slowly being chipped away at, some subtle, traditional pension no longer offered, first ever pay cut in 2008 of 5% (more counting no bonus and no 401K matching that was stopped for a while) never restored despite better company performance a few years later. jumpseat flying taken away. parts of the city and some surrounding suburbs are going downhill as the city annexes more areas

Advice to Management

The next time you decide to cull the herd, let line managers be involved in the process to get rid of the dead weight who spend all day on facebook, surfing the internet and wasting company time and resources being do-nothings who appear busy, not laying off higher income earners, who earned their money being good employees who know their jobs well and helped get the company where it is now

    Pros

    There are some and always have been some great people that work at this company. I have built some long and lasting relationships with many of them.

    Cons

    For more than a decade this company has had a high rate of turnover and their management is well compensated when their employees are downsized and given pay cuts. The company has a good year and employees dont get a bonus and have even received pay cuts. This company goes through predictable cycles of a few good years and then a few bad years revenue wise. The troubles all come from management - they are arrogant and not focused. They tell you how important the culture is at this company but they are telling you this from their rather large ivory towers.

    Don't be fooled this company has no loyalty to you... 99% of the 30+ people I know that used to work there have moved on to better jobs elsewhere with more pay and more opportunity. While 99% of the people I know that still work there are in the same jobs or only made lateral moves or one bump in position. Good place to just collect a paycheck that will never change.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what your customers need, figure out how to do more than shipping... you buy companies and new services every year and run them into the ground and they barely stay afloat. Figure out why UPS kicks your butt at brick and mortar while you squandor the biggest brick and mortar network in the business.
