Pros

Dynamic & challenging organization - recent acquisitions have provided tremendous growth opportunities for Con-way's stock and employees. No two days are ever the same...in a good way.
Doug Stotlar is a strong, big picture leader with a level of integrity that is unheard of at that level. He is genuinely interested in getting to know employees. He devotes a full weekend to "talk shop" with the employees who are selected as CEO Constellation winners - an award given to a select group of employees who exhibit Con-way's core values day in & day out. Doug not only shares his vision with them, but solicits and LISTENS to their concerns, ideas, and questions about the company.
Con-way's total rewards package - benefits & compensation - is one of the best in the industry, if not corporate America.

Cons

Tenure of many senior leaders creates pockets of "we've always done it this way" & resistance to change. I don't think Con-way can consistently be a leader in transportation and logistics when many of the leaders have spent their entire adult working lives in this organization. Con-way needs to continue to bring in senior leaders from other industries and competitors to ensure we are looking at best practices, not just traditional practices.
For many years, employees who were willing to devote their every waking moment to Con-way and be a "yes man" were the individuals who were rewarded and promoted. This mentality still exists in some pockets of the company.

Advice to Management

Base your strategies on well-rounded advice - other industries, other transportation companies, and the employees who do the work for Con-way.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is good but hours are to long and they will over work you!

    Cons

    To many hours or working every weekend, managers will lie to you just to get you hired and then tell you they never said that

    Advice to Management

    Why do you allow mangers who beat their kids or wife to work there! Why do you hire managers that yell and put their fist in your face when they don't get their way! Why do you hire mangers that will not pay you for the work you do without a fight to get!
