I have been working at Ryder System full-time for less than a year

Pros

they offer great benefits, great pay. very safety oriented. they offer some sort of tuition assistance, and will contribute to your 401k even if you dont. awesome vacation time as well.

Cons

the only real con is that they do not have a tool allowance program, but at the competitive rates they pay it still works out. tuition reimbursement does not seem to be easily attainable for a general education, seems they only help out with courses directly related to your field of business and must be approved before you enroll in a course.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

great job, only recommendation from me would be to be more flexible with the tuition assistance as it benefits both the employee and the company once the employee has completed a degree.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ok benefit; although copays/deductibles are now pretty high
    coworkers are great

    Cons

    Front line employees treated horribly
    company drive to please stockholders means understaffed, micromanaged.
    Impossible to do workload company demands.
    NO job security. They will fire most convenient scapegoat to avoid dealing with systemic issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Goals of lower costs;higher productivity admirable, but not achievable by micromanagement.
    Face real problems-SMO is a mess. Polishing it doesnt work. Need to gut and start over-THAT would double productivity. Staff shops so people can actually get workload done. BOA is not valid in most shops.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ability to move up and promotion from within. Tuition reimbursement, ability to mange accounts without a lot of top down management.

    Cons

    Maintaining balance between work and home. Many times there can be times with days off whe you may have to still handle major issues that escalate. Balance of pay can be an issue certain Accounts have different pay scales for same position which is unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fair wage practices, and ability to keep employees by matching other company's wages.
