insight on one of America's largest employer

CTC (Former Employee)
Honolulu, HI

I worked at FedEx full-time for less than a year

ProsGood benefits which are offered to all employees (full & part time). great opportunity for advancement or relocation. Decent pay

Consvery resistant to change, strong 'us vs them' mentality, IT standards are over a decade behind current industry norms, managers are encouraged to look the other way when problems are reported, management priority is not to upset corporate for fear of possible impact on career.

Advice to Senior Managementstop using the survey 'one of the best places to work' as a marketing tool for prospective employees, current workers and overall experience will quickly disabuse new hires of that notion. just because 'this is the way we have always done this...' doesn't mean it is the best way any longer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Long time employee

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at FedEx full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI enjoyed building software to solve business problems. There are lots of opportunities to do great work. Great work-life balance.

ConsConstantly changing customer needs drives need for constant change -- not necessarily a CON. Management will practice PSP, but you need to look out for yourself, as with most companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the PSP (people, service, profit) culture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
