    Good place to work, but not as good as they think they are

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFedEx Services (used to be part of FedEx Express) allows employees to take ownership of decision-making in their individual roles. They place a high value on training and revitalizing the corporate culture, and foster a desire for providing extraordinary customer service. In turn, the employee is responsible for their own career development, and must be assertive about pursuing opportunities for learning more and moving up.

    ConsUpper management is a little too quick to impress upon the employees how good a place it is to work. It is much better than average, but its real corporate culture does not correspond completely with its ideal corporate culture. Yes, they have all sorts of training and awareness programs designed to engage employees and make sure they believe people come first. However, in real-life situations, that philosophy tends to get pushed down in the priority stack. Also, because there are so many nearly-autonomous operating companies (OpCos), there are way too many turf wars and silos. Finally, the company structure and chain of command is somewhat militaristic and its easy to get written up for things that would be handled much more informally at most modern companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't try to force renewal of the company core values by trying to push the corporate culture from the top down. Listen to your own management consultants, who have told you: corporate cultures rise naturally from the bottom up. Again, the lack of connection between the ideal culture and the real culture.

    Good Benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsBenefits for part time work. Understanding managers. Working with good people. Company has a good culture and value stance. Onsite cafeteria.

    ConsWeather. You will be working in the elements. Even if you have a roof over your head, odds are the wind is still whipping through your work area, cold in the winter and hot in the summer.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    DISTRICT MANAGER, CEO AND UPPER MANAGEMENT NEED TO WAKE UP

    Operations Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsI cannot think of any good reason to work for this company. They are like a vacuum and will suck the life out of you.

    ConsOps Managers and CE Managers are worked to death. Average 12 hours a day at each respective station, be on call 24/7, work remotely to keep reporting current. No family value. Many managers have literally lost their families because of the job expectations. You are required to be a robot and do what you are told. If another counterpart/manager is out, you are expected to cover as well which means you work 25 hours a day! There is no such thing as work/life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnjoy your time at home with your families. I have lost mine due to your unrealistic expectations. Reduce the number of stations per manager and go back to the old system. The CE Manager position and new system do not work!! Upper management is clueless.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Head for the hills

    FT Courier (Former Employee) Springfield, IL

    ProsGood people to work with although some like to get away with working less.

    ConsMicromanaging. Upper management treats people like a team of race horses. The corporate office runs the show and tries to run each station the same way which is ignorant of stations individual needs. Worthless reports run by puppet managers that probably no one reads. Poor direction. Morale in the toilet.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor upper management, if all you care about is inflating the stock price and stuffing your pockets I guarantee you will be out of business sooner than you think.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible place to work

    Ramp Agent (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsWork with a limited amount of talented, hard working and fun people. Most hourly employees are some of the laziest people you will ever meet. But hey, they get the same raise you do so whatever.

    ConsPSP can be shortened to BS. Management at all levels are out of touch and do not care about their employees. Policies are in place to kill your spirit. I do not know one hourly employee who has worked here for more than a year who likes this place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop pitching the kool aid. No one wants to drink it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
