    I have been working at Fedex Express full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, even though health insurance coverage has been declining year over year. Many opportunities for advancement or job changes and the ability to transfer practically anywhere in the world. Job requires a quick work pace, analytical thinking and can be very physical. Definitely not a job for everyone.

    Cons

    Micro-management of all aspects of the business and unrealistic productivity expectations in every department. Company P-S-P policy, People - Service - Profit, sometimes gets reversed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to the original core values of the company and put customers and employees first.

    Stable but too Top Heavy

    Pros

    Very stable company that is making good profits. Haven't felt concerned about being let go even through hard times.

    Cons

    Management structure is extremely top heavy, Way too many corporate departments demanding sometimes competing expectations from their managers. There is no entity 'protecting' managers from being overworked because so many decision come from the VERY top and even upper management can't protect managers. This structure often leaves managers feeling like hourly employees because we don't get to actually manage when you look at the time is left after completing the multitude of required tasks that are expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the Managers make decisions about how to run their individual operations. If they don't perform at that point, then hold them accountable. As it is now, it is difficult for you to hold managers accountable because you are micro-managing our jobs.

    Pros

    Your office is in the streets. No cubicle BS here!
    Benefits are awesome.
    Great people to work with. Ive met and developed great, long lasting friendships for over 10 years
    Clients always thrilled to see the PURPLE AND ORANGE pull up on their driveways and pop up in their offices.
    Great room for advancement, granted if management is you thing.
    The ability to relocate is key for us drivers. Relocation a MAJOR PLUS!

    Cons

    Management needs to amp up their people and social skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to basics and fundamentals of business and ethics in the workplace. Be more FOR THE PEOPLE rather than OF THE COMPANY. Remember, your drivers pay YOUR bills. So treat them like gold!
