    Centralized Decision making, relatively averse to public media in developing countries.

    Fast track growth is required in Developing nations like India which is considered as opportunity hotspot for UPS. More penetration in Tier II & III cities, more branding, participation in public events, campus presence etc.

    Pros

    Speaking from the business (not delivery) side of the house. Good benefits, the company really tries to do everything fairly and give their people a voice in how things are done. There is really a culture amongst employees - more than I've experienced anywhere else. They are proud of their great history that they cling to and often reference. There is a reason the company has been around as long as it has. They know how to weather the storm and come out even better on the other side.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little behind the times on dress code, etc but they do try to update them yearly.

    management is more concerned with quantity and not quality.

    need to find common ground to keep employee and management on the same page.

    Pros

    Training was great and everything about the harshness of working in a warehouse was properly explained. The company offers great benefits and there is a worker's union.

    Cons

    Too many young supervisors with no leadership experience.

    Pros

    Really good pay and you can still go to college full time. There are a variety of shifts you can take as well to meet your needs and if you want to make a career out of it and become a driver you have that option as well. It's a pretty decent living if you choose that path.

    Cons

    It is some really physical work! and depending and on your level of fitness and more importantly the climate you live in it can become extremely demanding. It is true that you get you used to it, but I implore you to do it while you're young because father time always catches up with us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a union job, to start with but you do have the option of becoming a part time supervisor, however most of my friends that made the switch ended up regretting it because although the pay is a little better in the end the pressure that comes with it isn't worth it.
