    Former Employee - Team Leader in Copenhagen (Denmark)

    I worked at UPS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable company, stable financials and cutting edge technology in the industry

    Cons

    no clear-cut career paths, outdated policy of promoting from within. Long working days with no overtime payments from supervisor level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at why managers and supervisors are leaving for other opportunities elsewhere. I doubt your future depends on your human resources as most competent employees are dissatisfied with the way you treat them. Update your policies to reflect modern day trends, instead of relying on some Jim Casey philosophies which aren't relevant in 2013. Managers sacrifice top notch employees in advancement of their careers. There exist a practice of favoritism in the company where employees are promoted based on who laughs best with the manager. UPS is a solid company, financially, but I doubt negligence of attracting and retaining talent will help the company in being competitive in the long run.

    Way way overworked can't say no to overtime 60-65 hour work week equals no family time.
