    I worked at Ryder System

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers. Good resources: computers, software, subject experts. Pay and benefits were good. They were very understanding when I had to deal with illness or deaths in the family.

    Cons

    Management did not do a good job of managing customer's expectations. If the customer wanted any new project, it was assigned to the team, without additional resources. Some of the best team members left for other companies for better pay and a reasonable work-load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your worker's time as a precious and limited resource. Keep the customer's expectations at a level that the team can achieve. "Under-promise and Over-deliver".

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Local work. Able to provide equipment when needed. Safety bonuses.

    Cons

    Too many to list for my location but it depends on the location. Contract has forced me to have the same pay for 4 years. More responsibility and same pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shops do not do what DVCRs ask them to do. My poor justdgement, but out of necessity I have driven my Truck at times when I shouldnt have because the load had to get o the customer. The shops do not do thier jobs half the time because they are too busy or too lazy and UNION so I havent figured that one out yet, Im getting another job ASAP.

    I have been working at Ryder System

    Pros

    Decent work-life balance, good hours, benefits are ok, managers can be understanding

    Cons

    Under paid, compared to all other logistics companies, Ryder seems to pay way less. Growth within the company can be at a stand still and when setting a what seemed like completely realistic goal, HR stated it was too aggressive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees and promote them fairly and timely. Help them advance to the next salary level if they are stuck.

    Current Employee - Customer Logistics Manager in Houston, TX (US)
    Current Employee - Customer Logistics Manager in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at Ryder System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, stability, adequate pay, ability to relocate. Some truly good people out there (that are often tarnished by the overwhelming number of bad)

    Cons

    Terrible middle management that seems stuck in the 80s. Older management staff that seems threatened by the younger generation. Lower salaries than industry standard. Not enough support personell. Every task or challenge is a trade off. If you want to excel at something then something else will fall to the wayside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train and teach rather than be threatened by younger management team. Be more positive. A lot of negativity on a day to day basis. Why have 6 conference calls in one day just to talk about more conference calls?
