No opinion of CEO

Pros

average pay for the industry
good benefits
FedEx appears to be committed to staying in the LTL industry, overall good job security

Cons

LOTS of politics, if you're "in" with the right people you have nothing to worry about, if you're not, management can make coming to work miserable.
Employees (hourly and low level managers) are treated as easily replaceable pieces of equipment.
It is NOT a team effort, each group is pitted against the others with inconsistent goals (dock vs. drivers vs. dispatch vs. ...) The goal of management is NOT to service the customers, it is to get a good "score" on internal audits.
Managers advance by undercutting those around them.

Advice to Management

Take feedback and constructive criticism seriously. When an issue about a manager is brought up, a typical response is "No, 'John' would never do that." Most concerns are simply dismissed as untrue, while managers tend to make snap decisions without attempting to gather information. This promotes employee disengagement.
When a service center consistently ranks at the bottom year after year in the annual internal survey, it's not because we "misunderstood the questions." Morale begins with management.
