    I have been working at FedEx full-time

    Pros

    Good compensation, better than average benefits, historically long term job satisfaction and most people stay at least 10 years, but many stay much longer

    Cons

    There are not a lot of levels to advance through promotional opportunities. You cannot come in with an expectation to advance at the rate some other companies have ... be patient, wait for your time, repeat if necessary.
