      Pros

      Work life balance. Personally have a great director and love my colleagues.

      Cons

      Many, they recently decided to not payout commissions on some spiffs that were offered. This cost many of my colleagues around the country thousands of dollars. I know that in our business unit at least 50% of the business Development managers are looking actively for new employment. Processing deals is the worst I’ve experienced (I’ve sold for multiple Fortune 500 companies). Credit decisions are not competitive with the marketplace and this leads to deals lost simply because Ryder requires a significant deposit and the competitors do not. Lease pricing is not competitive and although our leadership doesn’t lose deals on price, we the sales team lose commission because the biggest part of our commission is based on profitability of the deal. Quotas are out of control. Bosses admit openly how unattainable they are.
