    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.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They help pay for up to $3,000 in school tuition. Also, there are many opportunities to move up within the company.

    Cons

    Upper management isn't always around, and there are may times where workers are left on their own to handle situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have senior managers around a little more often, so that they can actually see things that are going on in their work groups. That would help answer any questions or comments that people might have at certain times.
