    Pros

    Good benefits, training, and opportunities for career advancement

    Cons

    Hourly employees work extremely hard but are not paid wages that reflect their worth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FedEx has lost sight of its PSP philosophy over the past 10 years - the focus is on the shareholders and not employees who have and continue to make FedEx successful.

    Pros

    Pays well, great experience and wonderful benefits. Works you hard and very well. Many chances to move up in the company.

    Long work hours, exhausting at times, moves at a quick pace so you have to keep up, and working holidays.

    I have been working at FedEx

    Pros

    Good wages and local management. I would recommend FedEx to a friend and have.

    Cons

    Some micro-management from upper management. Benefits have lessened over the past few years and it is rare now to get 100% of bonus. Usually attain between 25-50% now since they changed how it is paid out. When I started 100 -120% attainment was considered normal. It used to be based on station performance alone. Now it is based on local, operating company performance, and corporate performance. If FedEx decides to buy 100 new planes, it now affects your bonus. I wouldn't mind the new structure as long as it was attainable. Seems like they always have a reason for not paying out complete bonuses, even when then company is doing well. We haven't come close to 100% since they changed it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either do away with the bonus and increase annual pay, or make it more attainable. It only frustrates people to know they can't attain a goal, no matter how well they perform their job. For upper management, listen more to people on the frontline to understand the challenge's better before instituting policy and procedural changes that may just make things worse.
