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

    Pros

    Very good company with great benefits. Excellent technology company with a large IT Budget. Great group of employees that promote a team environment

    Cons

    Company is very rigid and departmentalized. There is a lot of red tape when implementing changes or trying to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. There is a tendency by management to mico manage every step of a project. Treat your employees as professionals, they dont need to watched constantly.

    I worked at UPS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, worked with some good people get rid of management could be a great place

    Cons

    Managers to long in same spot, resist change, nepotism , silos ,do not start entry level you will be lied to and will not be able to move up . Higher management does not care ..likes things status quo lots of high priced people watching videos...managers can be nasty treat you like idiots.no where to go stay in your little silo job. They tell you your career is up to you..then tie your hands and won't even help you . This is where careers go to die.

    Advice to Management

    Do not leave managers in the same positions for years ..accountability,why doesn't higher management question why people don't move for years?? Stop lying and telling people you promote from within you don't unless you have a really good friend who decides to help you. Get rid of the silos, give people the chance to learn new thngs. Just because someone has been there for 20 years doesn't mean they have integrity! Absolute power corrupts check up and hold management acccountable
