    It was OK. I learned a lot. As with any large company, there's a lot of politics.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for advancement. Although you have to learn how to play the game.

    Cons

    This is a predominately male industry and Ryder is no exception. It is harder for a female to rise into the upper ranks of the company.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, some flexibility, opportunity for training

    Cons

    Culture changed to one of subtle intimidation by senior management leading to poor morale. Limited to no support from HR.
    Outdated technology

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on changing culture to one of open communication and shared goals. Many people stay because work is hard to get. If economy picks up, I believe more people will be looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    Good coworkers, can be flexible, employee events which keep morale up in a not so happy company.

    Cons

    Ancient company, use of old software and old business techniques, management is sketchy. People in high places do not know what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend the money and update the technology within the company. Workers will appreciate it.

    Pros

    Better than unemployment.
    Very casual culture: jeans and flips type of place.
    Can set your own hours.

    Cons

    Low starting pay.
    Advancements & merit raises are far and in between. If and when you do get a raise, don't be insulted if it's only 5 to 10 cents an hour.
    Rising healthcare costs due to aging and fattening staffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on improving shop management nationwide. We are letting our customers down way too often. Get better quality employees by opening up the checkbook.
