    Pros

    The benefits and worklife balance are excellent at FedEx. Without question this is the best place I've worked as far as that goes. The ability to move around in the company and grow is also quite good. I've now had three careers at FedEx and they have generously paid for my education while preparing for the latest. Their policy of promoting from within means that a lot of people I know have had opportunities to grow in ways they could not imagine.

    Cons

    Innovation takes time. Paperwork and procedures are somewhat complex and getting moreso all the time. This may be occurring at other firms as well, but it seems especially difficult here.

    Advice to Management

    Streamlining processes and instituting more collaborative processes across the Operating Companies would help us get more done for our customers.

    Pros

    Fast paced amd my co-workers and bosses are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The heat is terrible , it would be alittle more bearile if there was a fan in my work area.

    Advice to Management

    If a worker is good and hard working , not always tatteling crying and complaining. Don't ignore them leave alone to do the work of 3 people. without sending her someone to help out so they are not struggling to catch their breath . Instead reward them with more hours, and opportunities to learn more so they move up , to add their abilities , skills,and hardwork to help guide and motivate the other workers.

    Pros

    -Relatively good pay. - Good benefits: 401K, pension, PTO, medical-dental-vision, discounted airline travel, other little perks. - Work-life balance - Stability and job security - Reputation as a top 100 employer - Mobility across company and divisions

    Cons

    - Slow and bureaucratic at times. - Senior management more interested in empire building. Not much focus on efficiency. - Slow to innovate- happy with status quo. - Over-staffing (in some areas) resulting in bored under-utilized employees and fewer opportunities for upward growth.

    Advice to Management

    - Let us not rest on our past accolades and become too complacent. This is a high barrier-to-entry industry but we still need to focus on innovation, efficiency and speed in this era of global competition.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, co-workers, and it's a job.

    Cons

    Management is TERRIBLE. Work environment is HORRIBLE. No respect for your personal life. Management is INCOMPETENT.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better, know your job, and stop just thinking about yourselves.


  7. FedEx reminds me of a dysfunctional but loving family... for the most part, it's great, until the doors are closed.

    Pros

    FedEx is stable and tries to keep employees best interests at heart. They offer reasonably competitive pay and benefits. There is pride in the brand, even among employees.

    Cons

    FedEx can be political and two-faced... the company seems much more concerned about their reputation to the public (shareholders) and sometimes shoots itself in the foot. Also, FedEx has become very bureaucratic and more of a popularity game, rather than truly rewarding innovation and hard work. The employee has become more disposable over the years, though, admittedly, it's still better than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Show some commitment in company direction. FedEx seems to change directions with the wind and sometimes appears indecisive, inconsistent, and lost.

    Pros

    Generally independent work, driving a company delivery truck and meeting customers through out the day. There are clear standards and expectations of efficiency especially in the number of deliveries per hour, time between departing the warehouse and one's first delivery, etc.

    Cons

    A new courier is limited to only part-time hours. It takes a few years, and only when senior couriers retire or move up, for full-time slots to become available. In addition, even with a part-time schedule, sometimes it is difficult to get a second occupation because the length of a work day depends on several factors: personal delivery times, when a shipment of packages from the airport arrives, logistical issues at HQ, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more fair system of promotion centered on results and integrity instead of favoritism.

    Pros

    internal job transfers, customer focused

    Cons

    The company lost its charm during the recession. Reduced compensation, most of the employee benefits were removed, suspended 401k, laid off employees. All these happened during recession and then immediately hired lot of contractors. HR and senior management has to do a better job of keeping employees happy. If not it will be just another company and employee attrition may increase as the economy gets back to track.
