Approves of CEO

I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

It was a fun place to work with opportunities to learn new skills.

Management allows tele-commuting.

Cons

Getting promoted to the next level took too long.

My boss was out of state and was somewhat out of touch with my accomplishments.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ok benefit; although copays/deductibles are now pretty high
    coworkers are great

    Cons

    Front line employees treated horribly
    company drive to please stockholders means understaffed, micromanaged.
    Impossible to do workload company demands.
    NO job security. They will fire most convenient scapegoat to avoid dealing with systemic issues

    Advice to Management

    Goals of lower costs;higher productivity admirable, but not achievable by micromanagement.
    Face real problems-SMO is a mess. Polishing it doesnt work. Need to gut and start over-THAT would double productivity. Staff shops so people can actually get workload done. BOA is not valid in most shops.

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Decent starting salary
    -Cell phone expensed monthly
    -401k and stock discount/contributions

    Cons

    *(May vary by account and location)
    -Teamwork does not exist. Culture fosters backstabbing and only trying to set others up for failure
    -Going above and beyond expectations only gets you held to a higher standard and added responsibility
    -False promises of positions offered only to be swept from under you and given to others
    -If not in the limelight to brown nose the bosses, you will be managed out.
    -Work/Life balance does not exist. No matter what, you must stay as many hours as necessary to ensure a completed job
    -Opportunity for growth is VERY limited if you are not willing to relocate to a different city or state
    -Salary does not match workload/responsibility
    -Can not go to HR or higher ups in hopes of addressing concerns without fear of later being punished/managed out

    Advice to Management

    -Appreciate and recognize those that work the longer hours and push harder to ensure the jobs get done effectively
    -Possibly give more incentives for the 2nd and 3rd shift employees
    -Provide employees with the right tools to do the job and they will get it done effectively!
