    I have been working at US Postal Service

    Pros

    This is a Family oriented company, such a good place to work nobody wants to retire, great benefits and an excellent retirement plan.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative about the US Postal Service but the one thing I would say is the fact that if you have a position outdoors, it is definitely weather driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a little more involved in some of the positions like letter carriers to better understand that some demands are unreasonable.

    I worked at US Postal Service full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paid well for a job that anyone can do with no experience.

    Cons

    Management styles right out of the 1950's
    Top down authoritarian supervision
    Never heard of TQM or Empowering employees
    40% of employees are sub standard and would be fired immediately in the private sector.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting from within. The people that have put you in this precarious financial crisis have no idea how to solve the problem. Managers and supervisors are constantly fighting fires instead of doing any long term planning. Learn some modern management techniques. Lose the "I'm better than you" attitude, because you're not. Use your best resource (60% of your people) instead of belittling them. Get rid of the 40% deadwood who do absolutely as little as possible. Implement standards and measurements for production. Stop rewarding management with bonuses when the company is losing billions. Stop catering to the minorities and handicapped, you let them get away with anything they want. I could write a book but no one would believe it.
