This is a question I have been wanting to ask for a long time. How many of our management people actually have a degree in business management? The ones I know have degrees in history, political science, criminal justice and physcology. I know district managers on up must have some formal training in business (at least i hope they do for our company's sake).
My point is, talented people with degrees in business go and work for companies that pay really well, treat their employees well, have an opportunity for advancement, and are given nice bonuses (hello 1.6 MIP this year!) . This is what scares me about the company. UPS can't (or won't) offer the same incentives that most other US companies will to young and talented people. I think we are getting our
kicked by DHL because we have managers that majored in english or 18th century french poetry (no offense to people who have their degree in that).
My opinion is for our company to succeed we need to offer a better compensation package to our yound-and-up-and-comers. What do ya'll think?
