I worked at UPS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Earned six figures as a young professional, excellent benefits, and significant room for growth.

Cons

Wall Street likes FedEx's stock better than UPS's for a reason. UPS has been around over 100 years and is the 500lb guerilla in the room. They're a great company but are so large that they are either resistant to change because they either 1) can't change or 2) don't feel the need to change.

    Pros

    Established company with long history.

    Cons

    Long hours hard to get a work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing more with less will only work to a point. If reducing the workforce is the desired result then the exceptation point should be around 90 to 95% efficiency. As efficiency approaches 100% the hours demanded go up exponential. This makes for very long weeks.
