Pros

Friendly and positive corporate culture; reasonable work-life balance; respect for diversity; job stability; comfortable working environment. It's a great place to work.

Cons

As with every corporate job, politics sometimes wins over the best solution, and favoritism can sometimes affect promotions and recognition. Most of the time when managers post a position they already know who they will choose. You can easily get stuck in one area of the company because of your assignments and find you are not able to compete for jobs in another.

Advice to Management

You should change the way you solicit input from individual contributors to allow more real communication. You should do more to facilitate lateral movement so people don't get stuck in their jobs.

    Pros

    Has some of the smartest people I've ever met working there. Large IT campus in Memphis has walking trails, a nice cafeteria, wooded grounds, secure parking.

    Cons

    They drive the better people so hard that all but the most masochistic leave. Many that work there do the bare minimum to keep their jobs. Management is more political than Washington. Projects are a morass of constrictive processes involving lots of departments and meddling, yet you are expected to deliver big.

    Advice to Management

    You are great at delivering packages on time in great shape. Put some continuous improvement into place in IT and maybe you'll get great at that as well.

    Pros

    Good service, intentionally working on continuous improvement and quality, the brand is powerful. Being one of two national providers has its merit

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and excessive middle management have slowed innovation. While there are smart people everywhere, the results are not as good as they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Work to improve IT and product development cycle times; be aggressive at change. Remind employees that competitors continually innovate as well and everyone has to stay hungry.
