    I worked at UPS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for over-time pay. There is a consolidation push into the Coppell office for accounting positions resulting in a lot of work. I enjoyed cleaning accounts up after they were insourced. There is a real camaraderie feel and team work is a norm. I've never seen a company provide better benefits, I was practically paying nothing for a family of three. There are also a lot of advancement opportunities so if you learn quickly and apply yourself, you can climb the ladder fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Being that a lot of the work is being insourced, some of the accounts are messy and require to be combed with a fine-tuned comb. There aren't a lot of opportunities for training but I saw a push to change that. A lot of the people you work with are younger people (fresh out of college) so there could be an arrogance in the air and a lot of inexperience. There is also a high turnover in this office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has pushed for work-life balance which was a great incentive. My advice is to pay attention to those individuals that are making the accounts better and teach them leadership skills. There are some workers who are being promoted to supervisor levels that have no business being there other than the knowledge they have acquired from working there for over a year. Supervising not only requires knowledge of the work but also people-managing skills (which a lot of the Latin America sups do not have).
