I have been working at UPS

Pros

UPS is a big company with a lot of resources. There are plenty of procedures to make sure everything is done correctly. UPS is not a perfect company, but it really try to do the right thing.

Cons

Because UPS is a big company, there are a lot of red tape and paperwork to get things done. if you don't like following orders or procedure and paperwork, UPS may not be for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always be honest and humble. Always listen to your customer and employees. Wall street is not always right. Always do what is ethical and right. UPS reputation is the most important asset.

    I worked at UPS

    Pros

    Some of the best benefits available!
    Clear and concise goals.
    Great workout, I had beautiful biceps!
    Tuition Reimbursement up to $4000, and I used it all every year.
    Friendly employees.
    Different and challenging

    Cons

    It is still the good old boy system.
    After you are in management, you don't really have control of the sort that you wish to work.
    The senior management team, the ones who built the place, didn't like women in positions of authority. I had to play delicate flower so often, because I refused to play strong and lesbian.
    There was no place for creativity or external views for making changes.
    Long hours, full-time supervisors endure long hours, usually 11-13 on average without any typical lunch break. You know, where you can sit down and just get away from the operations? No, you better grab a Coke and keep it moving. I can't wait for lawsuits to start pouring in from Il like they are in CA. But for some reason CA management team seems to have all the courage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the this organization is successful because of the employees and respect them. Put a recognition program together that will reflect the work that they do and make sure that they are rewarded on time and consistently. Full-time supervisors can win discretionary days for a month of safety, but you can't reward employees with something more concrete besides a key chain? Make the employees rewards more significant and you will see a reduction in turnover.

    Don't be fooled by the hype. UPS isn't as great as they'd like you to think.

    Managment Salaries are laughable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote young, talented, motivated, and educated workers! Stop freezing promotional activity because expected volume is disappointing. That may indicate your "leaders" aren't getting the job done. You may need to consider promoting young talented managers, and applying changes to your stone-age processes.
