    Pros

    The company takes care of their employee, day in and day out. They show leadership and direction on where they want to move with the company.

    Cons

    The only challenge I see if work-life balance. Although you learn so many useful skills from this job, it also affects the things outside of work.

    Pros

    Value family time. Easy to have a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    They have cut costs to make the company more profitable but have cut back on a lot of training to do so

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training to front line employees because a lot of them get stuck because there isn't money in the budget for them to try doing something else.

    Pros

    "It's a "first name", "open door" company. It is a well respected company, therefor, as a result the individuals within the company are initially well respected, unless they prove otherwise. FedEx trains it's employees to do their jobs efficiently and pays for all of the training plus the training time.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little better. Sometimes the hours could be better.

    Pros

    The only Pros to this company are the benefits allotted to the employees.

    Cons

    Management looks for every reason NOT to grant raises to their employees. I have worked with this company for over 7 years and haven't received Any sort of raise from merit to cost-of-living. Also Diversity is a joke with the majority of employees being 70% Black to 30% White.Promotions are lacking with this company, in order to advance withing, the employee must submit a competitive bid whenever a position comes open.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more concerned and open to the employee's wishes, instead or what the employee can do for FedEx, you should be concern on what YOU can do for the employee.
