    I worked at UPS Supply Chain Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management really have your back and is very supportive and treats you with great respect. Many opportunities to move around and it can be your workplace for lifetime. Company with traditions and values, investing in new technologies and leader in the logistics field.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than in other industries. Typical disadvantages of huge corporations which are less agility in decision making and bureaucracy. Productivity is the highest importance oftentimes at the cost of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of employees being overworked.

    More impact would have generated with more frequent interactions amongst professional interns.

    Difficult to place interested interns in positions throughout the school year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop year-long internship opportunities in multiple functions within the organization in different locations (not only Atlanta based placements by the Atlanta office).

    Former Employee - Senior Business Systems Analyst in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at UPS Supply Chain Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Depending on what group you are in you will work with very sharp and talented individuals. A lot of mediocrity in the company so growth is definitely there if you can stand out as a top performer. The benefits are excellent. Extremely large company and very good brand to have on your resume. The contract logistics department is where you want to be.

    Cons

    Departments and groups are working in silos so its hard to keep up with everything. The base pay is well below average and the bonus structure is very frustrating. See above comment about mediocrity throughout the company. People who under-perform are simply transitioned into new roles and continue to slow down projects due to ineffectiveness. I am in my late 20's and the culture was a horrible fit for me (shave everyday, working remote is frowned upon, extremely strict dress code). Due to these cons there is a significantly high turnover on younger employees typically working 2 years and leaving for a drastic increase in compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more competitive compensation packages, promote based on pure performance and not tenure, relax the corporate culture and do a better job of holding onto top talent.

    I have been working at UPS Supply Chain Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, Great facilities, minimal layoffs. You can learn a lot about business and how to do a lot of things correctly. You can move around the company rather easily to learn new skills and/or jobs.

    Cons

    Really tough place for minorities and women to advance. Pay is usually below industry average and the company recognizes this, but will not make a change. No real room for advancement in this company. They work the pants off of you with little to no recognition.

    Finally, this is truly a 'good ol boys' network. You will find white males with less credentials & education consistently promoted and put into leadership positions over minorities. If you are lucky enough to be one of the few 'chosen' minorities which they want to push, you can do decent (I was that minority), but the closer you get to some situations & management the more you see the disparity and unfairness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing to share. Management knows how tough of a place this can be to work if you are not a traditional UPSer, minority or if you decide to not be a 'Yes Man'.

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, good parking, good cafeteria. Good place to be if you are young and want to wait about ten years until everyone above you retires so you can get a promotion. Great job stability.

    Cons

    Constant micro-management. Low pay compared to same jobs elsewhere. UPS treats its employees as if they are about 12 years old. Forget about getting a promotion unless you want to wait ten years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point giving them advise. That is just it, nobody listening.

    I have been working at UPS Supply Chain Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some incredibly talented people who work for UPS - and it has a certain level of name recognition

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement. People don't leave, so no upward mobility. Management may state that development is important, but they do not live that statement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exceptional employees will continue to leave if there is no development. Saying that you value your employees means nothing if you do nothing to help us develop or worse, put the needs of your individual "kingdoms" ahead of what is best for the company in the long-term.
