Neutral Outlook

I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Large company with opportunities to transfer to other facilities. Good place to learn the business but be prepared to do much of the learning on your own.

Cons

Large company that doesn't know who's working for them. Surprised by the extent of the micro-managing that happens. HR department is used as a weapon.

Advice to Management

Learn about the companies you invest in. You can't run everything like a trucking company.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Severance Pay Non-discrimination policy included sexual orientation and gender expression Matching 401K Decent wage for hourly Good HR and company structure Learned a lot Clean work environment I'm really having a difficult time coming up with a lot of positive things to say, but it did have an ethics and a HR line to call concerning problems.

    Cons

    There was a lot of favoritism and discrimination against older workers and heavier people. You could work for years at this company and all of a sudden--laid off. They really love taking advantage of young people, fresh out of college, working salaried employees an obscene amount of hours then they eventually lay you off, give your job to a younger person or someone you trained overseas or in a different department. The environment is pretty hostile, a lot of back-biting, and there were mass layoffs on a regular basis along with individual layoffs peppered along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back jobs to the United States, retain experienced employees who know what they're doing and do a great job at it, stop sacrificing quality for lower wages.

    Pros

    Great starting salary, they pay for a small portion of your Masters, you will travel both domestically and internationally. Upper management are great and truly care for their employees. CEO/CFO will actually talk to you in the elevator, so prepare the elevator speech!

    Cons

    Travel may be seen as a con if you do not like to be away from home. In general, younger professionals enjoy it while older ones see it as a bit of a chore.
