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

    Pros

    401k match is very competitive, laid back atmosphere, leadership commitment to doing things the right way, pretty good development opportunities

    Cons

    work/life balance isn't great (not terrible either), don't contribute enough to employee healthcare (very high premiums), pay is just average, most employees not eligible for bonus, not enough paid holidays

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire and retain the best talent in the industry, then you'll have to pay for it. Stop losing talent because you wont pay market wages.

    I worked at Ryder System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    As a salaried employee do not expect a raise just more hours, the drivers and union mechanics make more than managers. The maint mechanics are useless, horrible service, and attitude, they will bill you for items that are covered under guarantee maint contracts. They tell you it is one big family...what a lie the SMSand Rental have a budget as does Integrated logistics side lots of misbillings, it is every department for yourself. If your not making your #'s expect to get on the focus group and explain why your not making mone, the most common reason for not making the #'s they sign looser 3rd party contracts and expect the managers to work miracles. HR is a joke. Managers are treated poorly with no support and take the blame for everything...instaed of finding the root cause of issues.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the cannabalism that takes place between departments. Pay people well and increase what they make on an annual basis based on performance. Nothing like hearing about how much profit the company has made but nothing trickles to the employees in the form of money. Decrease the cost of benefits they go up every year. Eliminate so many conference calls and meetings so the managers have time to manage. Stop signing such looser contacts pull your pants up and learn to walk away from loosing propositions.
