    I worked at Ryder System (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow rapidly if you willing to work hard and then relocate.

    Cons

    Be prepared to communicate to your manager that it's Ryder, Family and Faith. It's a company that frowns upon not putting them first in all parts of your life. The work,life and balance is quite complicated within this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the person that has the experience and not the person that's ready to put Ryder first before their family. Unusual company but most employee's will tell you that work, life and balance is extremely difficult within this company due to the managers that are unqualified that received promotions within for playing politics.

    Pros

    Employee interface - Customer Interface - Equipment was newer- peer management worked together well trying to reach goals. I can't thing of many positives

    Cons

    Work hours are long You are always on call and have to work weekends. There is no regard for work load. Upper management doesn't care how many hours your work load is

    Advice to Management

    Accounts cancel and you can become unemployed overnight. Not a good choice for a long term career. Moving is mandatory for promotions.

    Pros

    Great Opportunity for growth, good benefits, overall a good work environment. Most managers are understanding and good to work with.

    Cons

    The promote from within culture while great for employees leads to a domino effect of echo chambers where issues and problems never reach high level executives. Similar to most large corporations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line they deal with it everyday.

    Pros

    They compensate you very well, and the mechanics are pretty down to earth. Other then that there's really not that to much else.

    Cons

    Everyone there is a backstabber in management. You can't trust no one.They act like they care about you but they don't. Make sure you only go there for your eight and then leave.
