Very Flexible in just about everything they offer, including benefits, time off and other perks. Employee Discount shipping.

Does FedEx pay for a gym membership?

Pros

My position at FedEx Services as a Project Management Analyst has been incredible. Benefits? Incredible. Work-Life Balance? Incredible. Culture? Incredible. The management team has been kind, supportive, consistent, fair, intelligent and dependable. In less than a year, I have had 3 managers (my hiring manager, the organization re-org'd after providing a buyout, and then my manager moved over to fill a hard-to-fill management spot to allow an individual contributor to move up) . All three managers have been as I described above. FedEx in general gives you all the tools to do your job properly. They live the People-Service-Profit culture, and you have an army of people willing to help if you need it. VP & Director communication is impressive. And while I'm excited about my promotion to Express, I am sad to part Services and this wonderful organization. As far as the physical environment, the cubicles are neat and consistent. Large with a decent amount of filing space. The buildings are shaped in a circular fashion, where all of the backs face each other, and out of the back door, you have a large park area where there is patio furniture, walking trail, and just beautiful, serene area if you need it. One of the buildings has an immaculate gym. They also have a cafeteria of sorts which has a standard hot and cold sandwich place, awesome salad bar, 2 soups, and then one 'guest' spot where companies like Chick-Fil-A come in.

Cons

Everything I could possible list on here, FedEx has a plan to upgrade or eliminate.

Advice to Management

The millennial generation is known for moving around quite a bit. FedEx has an incredible amount of people that have stuck in one department for 20-30-40 years. Promotions are done in a linear fashion (X%) when you move up. I was in a position where I was considering an offer at Express and a promotion within Services. Even after my promotion, the Express offer came in 12% higher for the same level title. While I'm still with FedEx and proud of it, I think there should be something outside the flat promotion that can be used as an incentive to compete against other OpCos poaching the great Service employees they work with.
