    Need a little advice from my partners. I am considering leaving big brown after 13 years. I love the company and the people but I am finding it harder to swallow the mgt line when it's do more and we will give you less.
    I have a few offers from established companies that are 25-30K more per year in base salary alone, not including bonus. Any thoughts and should I speak with my division manager before I resign?:confused:1

    I think a lot of people in your situation are considering a move like yours. Don't burn any bridges. If you have a fairly good relationship with your DM, I would talk to him/her. Be professional and express your reasons for leaving. I think they need to hear it. Do more for less is becoming a common thread for our management team. There's opportunity out there, and if you're young enough, take advantage. Good luck.

    Go ahead and talk to him if you have pretty much decided to go.

    Just don't tell him who offered the job at that much more... he just might try for it himself. :bored: :eek: :bored:

    Why ask a question that you know the answer to? You've already made our decision just need reassurance. My question is....are there other contributing factors that you did not mention? Were you bypassed on a MGR promotion?...etc...

    Our ctr has a 'kid' for an on car sup. He's the BEST sup I've ever seen & is respected by every driver, but is dumped on by the LAZY ctr mgr. I know we're gonna loose him and it's a shame. So dumbsup, if your situation is anything like this LEAVE & don't look back.

    part time midnight package handler, formerly cover driver, soon to be pt midnight shift trainer.

    i've quit jobs thinking they were so horrible, only to realise how good that job really was. hence, my restrained reply insisting that a change in career be thought and carried out very carefully.

    Having a great paying job is fine if it is secure. Many companies get acquired and then the new company starts replacing the positions with their people. Few companies have the security that UPS has, and most of them have no pension plan except a 401k.
