I have been working at Ryder System full-time

Pros

They're a well known name. The outside perception is that Ryder is a "good company". Employees that have been there for years (20+ years of service is quite common) say its a stable company. The company sincerely cares about the community. There are a few little perks that I've not found at other South Florida companies.

Cons

The executive level is a good old boys network. White male dominant (European-Americans and fair skinned Latin Americans). Very, very conservative. Also, if you're an IT professional, run away. This isn't the company for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

its one thing to speak about diversity. Its another thing to have women and minorities in executive positions. Fix the data/update the data systems and you'll get better quality data.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of job freedom with very competitive pay. Thorough job training for entry level management and sales. From this I have received strong enlightenment into an industry of which I previously had little to no desire to be a part of.

    Cons

    Difficult to compete due to restrictions against competitors. The company also struggled with forecasts and as a result dramatically overreacted on certain occasions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and work on forecasting. Additionally, while your company suggests managerial freedom it often can be too relaxed and results in poor training methods that could help project the company to higher levels.
