    Pros

    The pay is good if you have seniority. The benefits were good when we lived out west and while in the Western Conference.

    Cons

    Family life and poor management. Working 14 hour days makes it hard to see family every day. Management and Leaders don't care about helping their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about helping your workers work.

    Pros

    For the most part a good environment. Each facility is fairly small so it is somewhat like a small business.

    Cons

    The company is a merger of Roadway and Yellow Freight. Due to some poor decisions in aggressive growth by buying up companies the two were forced to merge operations to cut cost. The company was losing money and selling off property to survive. What once was a company that had a great training program began a company with almost no training. Bonuses gone, salary cut across the board. Still pretty good pay but not what people were looking for that had a lot of experience with the company. Future was pretty dim when I left in 2012. Looks like they may be turning the corner but not a place that is going to have any real growth for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire young people and develop them. Will need to build a new talent base at a lower cost.

    Pros

    Salary, work environment, co-workers and location of business.

    Cons

    Union environment made it hard to discipline employees so the company could prosper. Huge turnover from dock supervisor to upper management. No 401K contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to take back control of your company so that you may have a secure future.

    Pros

    Small IT shop with some basic PMO processes. Lots of mainframe and some midrange with Oracle. Nice environment, but low margins. Good opportunities for advancement into management when I was there. Also good opportunities to stretch and take on new assignments by showing initiative.

    Cons

    When I was there there were ongoing workforce reductions occurring pretty regularly. Always concerned about margins.
