    I have been working at FedEx full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Still one of the best employers in Memphis. Pay is not the greatest. Currently have a manager that understands work/life balance. Overall glad I am working here.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Hiring managers do not want to recognize your skills and talents that you have successfully proven at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be scared someone will get your job. Surround yourself with great people. Other employers love to hire FedEx talent.
