I have been working at FedEx full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great company. I was proud to work for them. However, I think it is built on the back of the couriers, pilots, and hub people and delivers packages on time despite current poor IT support.

Cons

The company has become mired in the mud due to new processes implemented over the last few years. It is impossible to get anything done for the users. Small fixes take an act of Congress to load to production, much more than they are worth. So anything but the most fatal of errors is never scheduled for work. Paperwork occupies most of a developers time. Don't go there if you like to make things *work* for your users.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) It shouldn't take years to implement small changes into production. Use some common sense. 2) Your middle management is telling you what you want to hear, not what you need to know. 3) Talk to your people and ask their advice instead of hiring MBAs to tell you what your folks all ready know. 4) Don't ignore us old folks because we don't know that latest whiz-bang tool. The young folks look good but they don't have a clue how the business works.

    Pros

    Very good pay, steady hours, flexible with vacation time.

    Cons

    Boring when not busy, not recognized for exceeding at anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make things more efficient! Computers, the programs they run, and a lot of the processes involved are so slow.
