Company Culture

Not bad, everyone there shows the desire to want to see the company do well.

Support from management

Absolutely not. You're thrown to the wolves and expected to figure it out. But usually good about answering questions however they were never available to answer any of them most of the time.

Teamwork

No, this is probably the worst part of the job because everybody has that good ol boy mentality and there seems to be a lot of nepotism. You better hope you fit into the little groups because it is very cliquish.

Freedom to work independently

It appeared that way! That was never anyone around to assist with questions or explain their process and procedures.

Internal Communication

No you're already expected to understand how they do business

Gender Equality

Didn't notice any women size resources, administrative, or payroll type positions

Overall compensation for your work

The lowest pay I've made in 10 years

Office / Work Environment

Yes, you are provided with a company phone and computer

Environmental Friendliness

Not sure

Work-Life Balance

Initially they lead you to believe they are all about family but in the end it didn't seem that way

Company Image

I was when I was there because they were the known company

Job Security

Thought my job was secure but I was let go in a very chicken$hit way with no notice or warning. My immediate supervisor was present but didn't say a word to me nor would he make eye contact. Spineless. Wasn't given a reason

Workplace Safety

Excellent safety department

Challenging Work

It was challenging because he didn't have anyone hardly available to help you with questions

Inclusive / Diverse

I never noticed anyone but your average white guy that worked in a plant

Support from management

Higher ups seem overworked and under a lot of pressure. Their stress is sometimes palatable and very infectious.

Teamwork

Most, if not all, employees work well together and are agreeable.

Freedom to work independently

Due to the high stress on management much of my work was micromanaged from afar. Not enough time was available to really get into details of how the work should be done but at the same time that same work was under extreme scrutiny.

Gender Equality

Most of the staff in the office is female and it's hard to say if they were paid more/less than equal male counterparts. But the top management is all male.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The never seemed to be a bias against older workers.

Career Development

Promotion in the office came if someone above you left the company and you had enough experience to replace them. Other than that expect to be near the level you were hired at for a long time.

Overall compensation for your work

Pay comes weekly and on time. Salary is actually a bit under the average for the area though.

Job Security

In my time with UPS many people were let go at seemingly random intervals. Anyone who is in their first 5 years seems up for being let go without warning. On the good side several employees have been with UPS for over 10-15 years in some departments like accounting.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Break the workload up more for lower management and find a more effective training method than sink or swim.

What I like about the company

Great benefits and 401K match. Location of main office is great if you live in East Houston.

What I dislike about the company

Overly stressful to interact with management. Job security seems very difficult to obtain.
