Pros

I had a great manager/mentor at Ryder System. I was given incredible opportunities that has served as the foundation of a successful career.

Cons

When I was at Ryder there was initiallly stability, but then lots of turnover in my area. After my first manager left the organization I had three different managers in three years. But that was a long time ago... I wouldn't read too much into my comment as it pertains to today's organization.

Advice to Management

Nope... been gone way to long to offer anything by the most general advice. And that would be to focus on communications and employee engagement as an avenue for success.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are a joy to work with an the overall job is not that difficult, although their system is interesting.

    Cons

    Their HR department is horrible. They are not on the same page. I was misinformed on a number of different topics and they do not care at all. Overall a very disappointing experience.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication is needed in order for employees to be on the same page. The number of times that employees were not on the same page is far too great a number.

    Pros

    Industry leader
    Competitive salary
    Great HQ location (Miami, FL) - for work/life
    Knowledgeable, tenured employee base

    Cons

    Managed like "mom and pop" organization
    Incompetent middle-management (director-levels) with very limited exposure
    Limited ability for internal promotional opps
    Lack of autonomy to make decisions within management and middle-management levels
    Lack of diversity in senior management
    Limited (but descent) employee benefits
    Complacency with market position (not focused on non-traditional competition)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate strategic visions (both short and long term) more clearly
    Align middle/senior management - to be more forward thinking (rather than complacent)
    Provide autonomy to middle management
    Provide more promotional opportunities based on merit (not tenure)
