    Former Employee - Project Manager  in  Memphis, TN
    Former Employee - Project Manager in Memphis, TN

    I worked at FedEx as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work, great co-workers, laid back environment, fair compensation. Co-workers reached out from day one to mentor new employees which helped in understanding of their products and projects.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and subordinates. Management needs to be more engaged in the day to day activities of their team in order to evaluate the success or failure of a project and understand which employees are truly doing the work. It was disappointing and frustrating to team members to have to double their workload on critical projects to make up for the employees that were not doing their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all your employees (to include contractors) input and insight into your technical projects. Utilize the "Good to Great" methodology of getting the right people in the right seats on the bus.
