    Challenging especially in the work life balance side of things.

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Elgin, IL

    ProsStable company, good benefits and a highly competitive base pay.

    ConsManagement says they are moving away from service and documentation towards a more traditional sales role but it is going to take a long time to get the old guard out and new blood into leadership positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep evolving. There are still times when the old ways peek their heads through and you lose sight of what your Business Development team is trying to accomplish.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Painful!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay is good after a few years of entry-level crap work. Get to work outside. Union protection. Good health care plan.

    Great stability - steep ladder to climb

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Jacksonville, FL

    ProsFlexibility to set schedule -

    ConsToo much back office work keeping you from selling - pricing difficult to obtain - competition will always beat UPS price - UPS appears to be protecting revenue rather than aggressively obtaining new revenue

    SCS

    Procurement Analyst (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsHard to get fired.

    ConsOutdated systems, processes, and facilities. Management to high up in the clouds to understand the impact of the decisions they hand down. Nepotism, favoritism and good ole boyish abound, which places unqualified people in positions for which they are not suited. The company will never change because it doesn't need to, UPS will be here. A lot of young employees leave frustrated. This is also an SCS centric review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey won't listen

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