I have been working at FedEx

Pros

Great benefits, medical, and company culture. 401K match, and where else can you get a Portable Pension Account? Most places after you leave your pension is gone. The people and management are outstanding from the front lines up to upper management.

Cons

There's been a few times that negative news has not trickled down as fast as I would have liked it to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Proceed as you have been! We will bounce back from this recession FULL FORCE and FedEx will continue as always to treat our customers with royalty.

    Pros

    easy to get hired. They provide pay to get your commercial driver's license (CDLs). Free uniforms. Recognizeble employer that provides good resume experience. Get exercise while working.

    Cons

    little control over number of hours you're working. Frequently log 50+ hours. Blue collar mentality. Sometimes you feel under-appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the line employees. Although they're blue collar workers, many of them are educated and know a lot about how to do their jobs well. Please treat your employees ethically, and with respect. Please give them the benefit of the doubt until they've provided reason to do otherwise.

    Just my observation - but shared by so many grunts who bleed purple.

    Pros

    Flex Time and Bonuses were good. But the greatest reason to work for FedEx is the people (non-management). They are the most down earth set of people you could work with.

    Cons

    FedEx's Low Level Managment to the CIO lack vision and direction, despite management's propaganda. Many of FedEx Services problems are the reflection of the leadership in the management chain. It's not what you know but who you know. But this mantra has caught up to FedEx as it eventually catches up to most companies. Middle management is more concerned with climbing up the corporate chain than doing what is right for the company, the stockholders, or the employees. The Executive Management is so out of touch with was occurring at FedEx Services because they rely on middle management to be concise, ethical, and to the point. However, as most work places including FedEx Services, middle management tells senior management what they want to hear rather than tell them how it really is.

    If you don't believe my commentary. Ask a FedEx Services employee how successful 6x6 or 6x6 Reloaded was/is (off the record) in Memphis, Dallas, Colorado Springs, and Orlando? For the brave souls who bleed purple will tell you it was/is a joke. The biggest joke is the CIO, the Senior Vice Presidents, and the Vice Presidents, the most useless executives that the FedEx subsidiary could have assembled. This management team should be dismantled and rebuilt. Managing Directors and Managers should be terminated for three consecutive poor Pulse Survey Reviews.

    My respect lies with the Chief Executive Officer like Fred W. Smith and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Alan Graf and the grunts (Software Developers, Network Operations, Technical Writers, Networking Groups) within FedEx Services. Everyone else is expendable.

    Recognize who really runs FedEx Services: the Chief Executive Officer like Fred W. Smith and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Alan Graf and the grunts (Software Developers, Network Operations, Technical Writers, Networking Groups) within FedEx Services.

    I still bleed purple.
