I have been working at UPS full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Established company with long history.

Cons

Long hours hard to get a work/life balance.

Advice to Management

Doing more with less will only work to a point. If reducing the workforce is the desired result then the exceptation point should be around 90 to 95% efficiency. As efficiency approaches 100% the hours demanded go up exponential. This makes for very long weeks.

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Earned six figures as a young professional, excellent benefits, and significant room for growth.

    Cons

    Wall Street likes FedEx's stock better than UPS's for a reason. UPS has been around over 100 years and is the 500lb guerilla in the room. They're a great company but are so large that they are either resistant to change because they either 1) can't change or 2) don't feel the need to change.

    I worked at UPS part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Structure; consistent workday despite volume of work.

    Cons

    Cumbersome path to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    My experience at UPS in management was probably better than most, so my opinion is probably a little more biased than others. My management team was pretty good for the most part, they were demanding, but not unrealistic.
