Does UPS offer relocation assistance?

Pros

-Depending on the team the people were nice - job security if you do a good job - opportunity for relocation - good package overall compared to Belgian companies (could easily reach 35-40 vacation days per year after 3 years with the company compared to 20-25 at some Belgian companies I interviewed after)

Cons

-salary was ok but not well explained in the beginning (the bonus was advertised as 10% of the salary but it is actually dependent on the company results and the tax is higher than usual. The net bonus was around 35% of the total sum advertised when I accepted the role. HR does not get into explaining the net salary because it depends on each person's civil status. When you don't know Belgian law this help is essential though) - typical corporation environment. Things move slowly, there's tons of politics involved. - many high level executives were very conservative (e.g. Making observations to managers when men in the manager's team would wear a beard)

Advice to Management

Less rigidity Have the guts to say something when things are not working ok (not always finding the good story to tell to the boss)

Advice to Management

Learn how to talk to people, not dictate, it's not the 1950's anymore. Harassment isn't the way to entice employees into getting the job done right or well. The pro's of this job were great, it would be nice if it didn't feel like such a hellhole.
