I have been working at FedEx

Pros

Get tuition reimbursment for college (to move on to better things)

Cons

Where shall I start? You are extremely overworked and underpaid. There is favoritism. Managers only care about their numbers. Fedex continues to take away benefits yet wants you to do more and more. Advancement only happens if you kiss you know what. I can go on and on but there isn't enough time in the day....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would say that every senior manager I have come across is in the right line of work for themselves. Fedex wants a cold, heartless tyrant and most senior managers, as well as managers, fit the bill.

    Pros

    Fedex start wage is fantastic but, this is how the company suckers people in.
    Fedex benefits are great as well but, beware that this is another tactic to sucker people in.

    Cons

    The downsides to working at Fedex is simple, they are great manipulators. They tell people what they want to hear but, do the complete opposite. All Fedex cares about is their reputation, and BRAND. They treat their frontline employee's aweful but, keep in mind that these are the people that make FEDEX very rich. Overall the company has made alot of money throughout the years, now they over work their employee's, and company expections/goals are just unreasonable to achieve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    That not all of your EMPLOYEE'S are easily manipulated, and they can read between the lines. That BAD managers at stations with know people skills, out for the quarterly bonuses, isn't exactly a smart move from senior management at Fedex.
    Senior management has to get more involved in there frontline operations cause, this is the part of the business that makes Fedex the company that it is.

    Pros

    It is the only large cargo carrier in Memphis, Memphis does not have many competing jobs in this category.

    Cons

    FedEx does not provide adequate benefits to a majority of the employees. Some Workgroups do have adequate benefits. The executive management group has an excellent pay, retirement, and bonuses. There retirements benefits are outstanding, retirement pay, and retirement medical.

    As for the majority of employees the pay is inadequate, the health insurance is sold to the employees for a high price with very poor coverage. The traditional pension plan was discontinued, and frozen. They have a very inadequate cash Pension Plan that will pay a minimum token amount when the employee leaves after 20 years. It is based on your salary and time in service, and applied to a company account every three months with a interest rate of 1% every three months. That ADDS up to 4% the year, and you do not control the money in the account. It is controlled by the company.

    Many of the retirees are struggling with the health insurance. The retirees have to pay $700 to $1,000 a month for coverage for two people. This is no better than Cobra coverage.

    Many people go to work for large companies for the benefits, health insurance and retirement knowing that this was promised at the beginning of their employment with this company.

    FedEx is very good with public relations they have the means and the money to make the story sound good. They also are very good of promising many things. But to is all smoke and mirrors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FedEx does not take advice from anyone in the employee ranks. They hire consultants for high fees to get advice. It is fruitless to even give any advice to they executive management. There is no communication.
