    Pros

    The overall pay is excellent. FEDEX provides a reasonable benefits package as well. If you like to travel and fly to strange places at very odd hours, this is the job.

    Cons

    Slow advancement due to the change in mandatory retirement age and difficult economy. Although some of the flying can be quite interesting, much of it is to challenging locations in challenging conditions with arduous on duty periods. There is no real opportunity for personal or professional growth much like any pilot position as it is strictly a seniority based system.

    Advice to Management

    Start recognizing that FEDEX is no longer domestic based express distribution company, but a globally networked logistics corporation. Now is the time to be agressive internationally and no time to nickel and dime critical employees, especially in overseas positions.

    I would tell senior management to assess some of the current people in management. In addition, they need to integrate the operating companies a lot better and reduce the redundancies.
