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

Pros

Benefits, Stability, Easy work life schedule, opportunity for growth, company will take care of you, income, lots of opportunity for growth but must be open to moving and travel. This is a great company if you put your whole heart into it.

Cons

Politics, Company is run by engineers not by sales and revenues, Old School Company Culture, Slow moving giant, Too big that decisions take too long to get made and when they are implemented they are obsolete, suffers from design rigamortis, they make promises to you and make you keep believing you will be promoted but someone else may due to politics or a position just may never open because no one wants to retire. You will have to move around in order to move up. If you want to contribute your own ideas or ways of thinking, or ideas, this is not the company for you. They are like the 5th branch of the military and you have to be willing to say yes and don't ask questions.

Advice to Management

Stop taking analytics of your employees and studying all these metrics. If you want to know what works best or how to make an improvement, just ask us. Wish the company would take more of our opinions into consideration. Also wish we would invest more on internal technology.

    Pros

    Good work experience. If you want to learn about how poor business is managed, then here you go.

    Cons

    Underpaid by the amount of hours you work.
    You only move up in the company based on who you know, not how well you are at your job
    They stress on college education for promotion, but it could take up to 3 to 6 years to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff. Stop acting like everyone is beneath you. Your company cannot exist without the hourly workers.
