    Pros

    Ryder is an excellent company to work for. I think the people is their biggest asset. Everyone helps each other and it feels like one is working with family.

    Cons

    In my opinion there are any cons. Ryder is a big company and as such it takes time to implement new technologies and new ideas.

  2. Loved it, it kept me busy my nights went by pretty fast.

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Good benefits. Great training and leadership events.

    Cons

    Highly political and bureaucratic. Ryder worries more about "check-the-box" compliance than actually ensuring their employees "get" the information or even if it's truly applicable to the operation. Not a safe employee environment to work in - lots of unexpected terms, which does not lend itself to the "innovation" they preach about.

    Advice to Management

    Quit protecting your favorites. Step-up and be a leader by doing the right thing.
