    Pros

    Good benefits, great location, friendly employees. In general Con-way was a solid place to work. It was not difficult to be successful at Con-way.

    Cons

    Leadership is so vastly varied in their skills. What makes an employee successful in one department is not meeting expectations in another. There are plenty of people who have skated through adding very little value for years and are completely overlooked. Higher level leadership does not "walk the talk." As a shared services organization, many employees were treated poorly by the business partners in the field and leadership did not do a great job of supporting employees.

    Advice to Management

    Develop stronger partnerships with the field operational leaders and stop letting them walk on you. Understand what your value add is to the business and capitalize on that...what worked in the past is not going to work now or in the future.
