    I worked at FedEx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits even for part time, tuition reimbursment, not at a desk all day, people were good and regular customers became like family

    Cons

    weather could be harsh ,esp in south, dog bites hurt, stepping in and out of truck all day wears on your knees. Christmas, Mothers Day and other high quanity shipping days your not going to see your family much.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about the numbers. Its about the customers and the employees that make the company

    I have been working at FedEx full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with long-term growth and increased market share. Supportive of employees. Good pay, benefits, dedicated to customers.

    Cons

    Keeping poor performers on too long and task of managing these employees. Very long process to terminate for subpar performance.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline employee management for poor performance and hold people more accountable. Negatively impacts others when asked to continue to back up others who do not perform.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. Coworkers are helpful and it is a team environment. Good, physical workout, fast paced. Safety is first priority.

    Cons

    Early morning shifts, as early as 3:45 to as late as 4:15. A struggle to get 20 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Try to standardize the start times for the employees. Keep helping in the trenches, it is good to see that the management team is willing to get dirty with the workers.

    Pros

    Culture and Leadership. Outstanding core values from top down. At any level, you are part of something bigger and your contributions are actively appreciated and valued.

    Cons

    You may not be an overnight success. With such a large population of employees, many of which are looking for regular promotional opportunities, you will have to be patient to progress you career. There are many great stories of 20 and 30 plus year employees who have remained loyal, patient and have moved up the chain.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to learn on how manage generational differences in the employee population. As a large company, with over 325,000 employees, its challenging, but continue to focus on culture, innovation and diversity. Those are the things that drove success in the past and will continue to do so as the company evolves.

    Pros

    Stable , People oriented company. i would recommed this company to other people who wants a stable and secure workplace. Not much pressure at work

    Cons

    Career growth is very slow. Management try to treat people, whether you are working hard or not working, the same, that demotivates people who works really hard. Management need to consider this much better

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who is working and who is not and treat them. People leaving are bored with the same kind of job doing for rest of thier life. Need to use job rotation to keep the people excited.

    Pros

    Great brand Actually has a pension plan that is funded by the company Loyal to employees Lots of long term employees work here Company tries to maintain work/life balance. Usually successful, but work sometimes takes precedence

    Cons

    Pay may be lower than market for similar positions Constant changes...which is sometimes good, but it's actually too common at FedEx

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying so hard to appease stock holders. The cuts are killing the service levels, and morale
