    STEER CLEAR!!

    Freight Broker Inside Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsMaybe a good first job if you are young and not really interested in making a lot of money but want to try a corporate environment.

    ConsDo not be FOOLED. This is a 6 man 3pl inside of a giant company. All of the talent has already left the building. Not one broker there over a year. This is a department that has not gotten off the ground in the 2 years it started and is not any part of Ryder's core business. It is run by a first time manager and a detached, egomaniac director. Beware, they are not set up to be a functioning department for anyone with a solid book of business and you will be sold a false bill of goods at the interview process. Be prepared to have no operational or managerial support. Make sure you ask what the top producers have made monthly over the past year (not even 10k/month). Ask to see the numbers!! You will not clear 60k in this atmosphere. Pay is a joke for any seasoned broker.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the drawing board.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If working in IT is a nightmare

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Miami, FL

    Pros-Decent cheap food at headquarters
    -Depending on your manager can work from home after a month or so

    While it is hard to think of many in general the individual contributors and internal customers were generally friendly and easy to get along with.

    Cons-Low pay compared to market
    -High levels of stress
    -Average technical knowledge of workforce is below average at all IT levels
    -Over management of projects
    -Management technical understanding extremely limited
    -Very slow moving
    -Unrealistic expectations for deadlines
    -Limited opportunities for advancement
    -Raises are very small compared to market
    -General IT Resources are extremely limited
    -Development resources are limited
    -No centralized company source control
    -Management uses fear mongering to motivate
    -High Turnover

    The IT Department at Ryder is toxic, the belligerent style of management that is used at the senior level results in high turnover, gross incompetence, sky rocking cost, and flailing systemic value. The department uses an ineffective traditional engineering methodology for IT solutions to implement technology of yesteryear. Resources are very limited, simple requests like acquiring a database for testing a solution takes weeks to fulfill if you do not know the right person to get around the official procedure.

    Management is not willing to spend the money but still expect performance from IT personnel.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompletely gut the entire IT department of all management and start from scratch with people that understand the difference between a software developer and a network administrator.

    Get rid of the developers and administrators who perform poorly and instead of hiring an army of incompetent developers hire a few very good developers, use self managed teams with an agile software development methodology to boost productivity. Also try to re-frame perspective on IT department in general, look at them to come up with creative solutions to reduce cost and increase revenue while still maintaining necessary enterprise systems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
