    I have been working at FedEx full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for, simply the best company in the metro Memphis area. The only Fortune 100 company in the metro area as well (to my knowlege). Company has jobs which comes with Career tracks. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Far too much company politics. Slow to adapt and change. Seems like it's the "superstar" employees that do the real work of the company, while the others are just running their mouths but not accomplishing much. Limited salary gains and very paltry bonuses. Healthcare plan is mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your productive employees better. The ones that really accomplish the objectives of the company, give them the pay they deserve.

    I have been working at FedEx

    Pros

    Great sales training
    Interesting industry
    Nice people that work there
    Good Benefits
    Decent pay

    Cons

    Career paths are not very good, I was Promoted and had to take a pay cut because of lack of bonuses
    Surprise quarterly goals that consistantly change, one quarter super high the next surer low
    Alignment of accounts is horrible and very little control over what accounts your aligned to
    No HR representative on the West Coast, most all important roles are in Memphis
    If you want to get promoted you have to wait a long time or move

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the Business development role, which is not a sales role at all. Nobody seemed to care about BD's and there is a lack of understanding as to exactly what that role is.
