    Pros

    Great company to work for! Management is great & wants to see you succeed. Plenty of opportunities for advancement. Great training programs and work life balance. Very enjoyable work environment. Competitive pay & great benefits!

    There are not many cons with this position - work can be repetitive at times and some processes are too complicated, but all in all ... not a big deal!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees & be one step ahead of the competition

    Pros

    This is an awesome place to work. People are friendly, cordial and professional. Everybody works together as a team and towards common goal.

    Cons

    Diversity in upper management can be improved. Diversity includes women and minorities. I think FedEx does a great job in putting women in upper management but there is opportunity for minorities to be included in that place too especially in IT and Marketing.

    Pros

    Will make you physically fit.
    Feels like a real job; you are needed and your role is serious.
    Straight forward. Get to work, do your job and leave at the end of your shift and you're paid extra if work is extra; no BS.

    Cons

    3am shift made concentration in class almost impossible no matter how early I tried to sleep beforehand.
    work is actually very hard and tiring and will make you tired the rest of the day.

    Pros

    Fedex has really invested a lot of their resources (i.e., time; money & energy) towards creating a postive "employee centerd" work environment & culture that puts their people first & actvely invests in programs that supports employee growth & development.

    Cons

    The company has a lot of politics...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
