    I have been working at UPS (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is excellent .health care is 100 % paid with 100 %coverage...with exception to eye and dental which is about 70%..coverage...pension is outstanding..full package with wages and benefits is worth 130,000 yearly..without a college education I am grateful for the standard of living UPS HAS AFFORDED ME AND MY FAMILY!...and with 27 years of service I now get 6 weeks vacation with 8 sick days..and 9 paid holidays...we work hard like many people in the work force but we are well compensated!.

    Cons

    The only con is while your children are young you give up a lot of family time..I never got to watch my kids play sports and missed a lot of their growing years...the job can be hard on your home life but if you can make it through those years you and your family will enjoy the financial freedom that UPS provides...and now I look forward to a prosperous retirement!...so hang in there all you young drivers...

    Advice to Management

    Ditch Orion ...95 % if your drivers are loyal and are out there to save time and miles !!! Orion puts ridiculous restrictions on them!!! especially in remote areas...and to upper management I would recommend you compensate your mid to lower management with the same excellent pay and benefits you give us drivers..when they see us drivers with better benefits it makes bitter management..everyone should be able to say they are proud and well compensated to work for UPS...it's what has kept UPS a cut above the competition quality employees for quality pay...

    Pros

    Encourage career growth. Always a new job on the horizon. If you are in the right job there is stock options. All in all, this is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Health insurance. They claim to have great benefits but it must only be for Union workers. Other than that there is not much bad to say in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Stay more in touch with the reality of the price war from the competition. Often felt like we are flat in regards to the need for new products and price points.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay is great but you definitely earn it. The benefits are also awesome, but again you more than work for them. Company culture is excellent there is a good spirit of working together to accomplish the goals.

    Cons

    Work life balance of ay kind is very difficult to achieve. Its preached a lot and they make you feel if you cant accomplish then its all your fault. Hard to achieve when you are told to work the extra hours or project deadlines are unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    work life balance needs to be worked into the culture. If not UPS will continue to loose quality hard working people.
