    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.

    Pros

    Great place to work, plenty of freedom, great employees, company culture and upper management.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get rich here, and not much much opportunity for growth. Maybe in other parts of the US, but California is saturated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on sales techniques to better the sales force.
