    I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, Huge Company, Career Advancement Opportunities in places all over the US and Internationally, Great Benefits, Caring Executive Management (took pay cuts and offered buy outs instead of handing out lay offs), Very Understanding Management.

    Cons

    Company as a whole leans more toward the older generation that founded it. Needs younger blood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in younger blood within the corporate and sales side. It could save the company tons of money in the long run.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The management is well selected; the facilities and concern for employees is a priority; and the work is variable , constant, and fast paced.

    Cons

    There havent been any major cons in my experience so far. Like any industrial job, there is constant noise (belts running, etc), but I couldnt see it leading to even slight hearing damage unless one worked full time for years.
