    Pros

    Good work life balance, great people to work with most of the time, company is understanding for family issues or short lead for time off

    Cons

    Management has favorites. You have to play the game and drink the cool aid to move up. If you are not a minority or woman you will not move up. If you are not a yes man you will not move up. Management spends all days in meetings and then wonders why nothing is accomplished. A lot of buzz words are used but are not actually followed: LEAN

    Advice to Management

    Instead of surrounding your self with yes men, work with those with talent. There will continue to be a revolving door of people until there is a fair opportunity. The most valuable resource in any company is your employees.

    Pros

    Local work. Able to provide equipment when needed. Safety bonuses.

    Cons

    Too many to list for my location but it depends on the location. Contract has forced me to have the same pay for 4 years. More responsibility and same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Shops do not do what DVCRs ask them to do. My poor justdgement, but out of necessity I have driven my Truck at times when I shouldnt have because the load had to get o the customer. The shops do not do thier jobs half the time because they are too busy or too lazy and UNION so I havent figured that one out yet, Im getting another job ASAP.

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers. Good resources: computers, software, subject experts. Pay and benefits were good. They were very understanding when I had to deal with illness or deaths in the family.

    Cons

    Management did not do a good job of managing customer's expectations. If the customer wanted any new project, it was assigned to the team, without additional resources. Some of the best team members left for other companies for better pay and a reasonable work-load.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your worker's time as a precious and limited resource. Keep the customer's expectations at a level that the team can achieve. "Under-promise and Over-deliver".


  8. Overall I would say, overworked and under paid.

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance, good hours, benefits are ok, managers can be understanding

    Cons

    Under paid, compared to all other logistics companies, Ryder seems to pay way less. Growth within the company can be at a stand still and when setting a what seemed like completely realistic goal, HR stated it was too aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees and promote them fairly and timely. Help them advance to the next salary level if they are stuck.

    Pros

    Lot's of good people stuck in critical positions without support from management

    Cons

    Long hours without any degree of leadership from corporate management. Top management has no three year, five year or ten year plan in place. They manage day by day and those who must get the job done learn quickly they are 100% expendable. Their history of negative sales growth should scare investors to death. Management loves to hire women and minorities however those with talent realize quickly that in order to make a career, they must move on. The HR group is constantly in a state of flux and if the true rate of overall turnover was ever published, it would be impossible to attract quality talent.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Get a plan and find a real leader who walks the talk and actually tries to support field efforts. The executive group is full of weak has-beens who hang around for stock options and bonuses while another empty suit does their song and dance routine for Wall Street. Try to actually give those with responsibility and accountability a little authority for a change.
