Former Employee - Mid Management Position

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    A bad place to work unless you are incompetent but a great self-promoter (you may thrive)

    I worked at Ryder System full-time

    Pros

    - A Fortune 500 company (well, in the 401-500 range)

    Cons

    - Career progression is not linked to ability or effort. Talented and hard working people may get stuck at the same level while the least intelligent and the least capable are often promoted (not all the time - there are also some very smart and talented people, especially at the highest levels).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should attempt to instill a culture where the most talented employees are identified, developed and promoted. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes a smart person to recognize another one so this may not happen.
