I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible schedules depending on your manager. Generally good professional opportunities and work life balance. Company is people focused, even though like all companies compensation isn't keeping up with inflation and Benefit cost increases.

Cons

Lack of empowerment of front line management and employees in the professional environment

    Pros

    Days are reasonable and not much overtime.

    Cons

    Much back stabbing, squabbling, management is not trained to handle it. They will not hire smarter people than they think they are. Most have little experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get trained

    I have been working at FedEx as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lovely work campus, with good cafeteria and health facilities. Some very nice people. Handy location.

    Cons

    Sadly, the culture includes...
     - A lack of respect for people - it encourages frequent interruptions, skipping meetings without notice, round the clock access and working
     - Us vs. Them mentality. Employees and contractors. IT and business. One manager's team and a different manager's team. Etc.
     - Retaining poor talent and not developing people. Inability to use basic tools (e.g., Outlook), to follow standard processes, to follow up actions by the agreed date are the norm. Some folks seem to be just marking time until retirement.
     - Leadership that focuses on their fiefdoms rather than on what's best for the company as a whole.
     - Inconsistency - ever changing expectations and lack of direction. as in a manager makes a decision and 2 hours or 2 days later changes it... And as in project A is a priority because the VP wants it to happen - but the only time anyone works on it is five minutes before the VP update meeting...
     - Poor communication - both from management down and amongst peers.
     - Focus on firefighting / squeaky wheels
     - Only some of the materials and equipment needed to do the job... Key software and training are not available to everyone. So you might be assigned work, and then not given the software needed to complete it.
     - Mismatch of people's skills and work assignments - which make it difficult for people to excel. Work is assigned arbitrarily, and not based on what a person wants to do, what they are good at doing, or where they might need to grow and develop,
     - Self-promotion and recognition for basic work - almost to the extent that folks can no longer recognize stellar performance.
     - Acceptance of poor quality work. Some folks laugh off mistakes found later... Yet, at the same time additional processes are created to improve quality - but they are not done well and create obstacles without adding benefits.
     - And, of course, cronyism. Projects are prioritized based on friendships / alliances. Promotions too in at least some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look at the state of the organization, and make some real changes to improve it. Costs could be reduced - and employee morale and engagement boosted.
