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 have been working at UPS full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People I work with are great. You get pay well for what you do. They do a tuition reimbursement program for bachelor's degree.

    Cons

    The job I have was misleading in its representation. I was lead to believe this was more of engineering job when it wasn't. You are an alarm caller who sits behind a computer all day. Mechanics have more power to change the area then you do. There isn't very many opportunities for promotion. Because there isn't a lot of promotions or upward movement there is a lot of veterans workers doing the same work making 20 or 30,000 more then you. Raises aren't based on performance they are based on years.

    Advice to Management

    Lower requirements for degree needed. The requirements don't match skill level needed. Far more reaching then needed. Maybe a associates degree in the technical area or just having a bachelor would be suitable. Reevaluate how raises are given.
