    I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for, simply the best company in the metro Memphis area. The only Fortune 100 company in the metro area as well (to my knowlege). Company has jobs which comes with Career tracks. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Far too much company politics. Slow to adapt and change. Seems like it's the "superstar" employees that do the real work of the company, while the others are just running their mouths but not accomplishing much. Limited salary gains and very paltry bonuses. Healthcare plan is mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your productive employees better. The ones that really accomplish the objectives of the company, give them the pay they deserve.

    I worked at FedEx as an intern

    Pros

    Great support staff for interns, excellent campus

    Cons

    We were forced to program on old, small netbooks. It made simple tasks take longer than necessary. My intern group was assigned two 5-week projects. The first was challenging and rewarding, but the second was extremely easy and we didn't have much to do for a few weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign projects based on the relevant skills of the interns in a group. My group had 4 programmers, and our second project required almost no programming and was extremely simple.

    I worked at FedEx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, especially for part time employees: tuition refund, health, dental and 401k.
    Service FedEx provides to its customers is bar none.

    Cons

    Upper management's ability to prioritize projects is lacking. Projects are added to the list, even when the business justification is not there to support it. This causes projects to have schedules that last years instead of months because there is not enough staff to complete the work in a reasonable amount of time. Additionally, scope creep is an issue (again at upper mgmt level). Company culture has changed. FedEx, at one time, really valued their employees, unfortunately this is no longer the case.

    Great customer-centered culture and focus. Working with systems that make a real difference in the economy.

    Little opportunities for visibility with senior management. Re-organizations happen regularly, but it seems to be just shuffling.

    Pros

    Great company to work if you like work life balance. The benefits used to be great many years ago, but its not too bad now either. The salaries are very standard. They pay enough for the kind of jobs they have. If you are a software engineer who has enough skills to get by programming languages, understand a few design patterns, have basic knowledge of software engineering and prefer a laid back work environment, so you can have enough time for family this is the place to be.

    Cons

    If you are highly innovative and spirited as an engineer, this place is a total letdown. FedEx is a transporation based company, not a technology company. Their ideas in innovation are still dated and go real slow in releasing the latest and greatest of products. Their business model is highly process based, even though some departments take pride of releasing new products as services to existing customers. Just as any large company, FedEx also has a lot of red tape and bureaucracy. If you work in the company for a long time, you will be in the dangerous zone of letting your skills become obsolete or unused. You have to make an effort on your own to stay up to date with the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management in FedEx is not very different from any other big company's management team. It has its strengths and weaknesses. My only advice is to find areas to innovate and think outside the box.
