Pros

Job stability is good..no layoffs and runs lean operation

Cons

5% salary cut and 10% of bonus plan eliminated...also changed program to make unattainable for future..no 401k match (suspended)...changing mof pension from traditional to cash balance plan

Advice to Management

Don't understand why profitable division suffers for ineffeincy in other divisions. Compensation changes unfairly punishes managers in Ground division since more of bonus pay is into salary. Used to be called incentive and was based of facilty performance. Now called bonus based on EPS. No control over it..other OPCO in corparation have only 3% in bonus.

    Pros

    FedEx ground is a good place to work if your are in management or you are a driver. These employees get a decent wage and have an average to slightly above average job satisfaction.

    Cons

    They want you to work at an efficency level that is nearly impossibile. If you work as a loader, they will send you packages at a pace that is so fast that you will not know how to keep up with. They expect you to work like a slave for a small amount of money.

    Advice to Management

    They need to pay the loaders more money so that they will actually try their best while working. When you get paid eight dollars an hour to do a very tedious job, your motivation level is extremely low.

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Pay is good for what is required of you. After 1,00 hours of work you become eligable for the benefits package which is outstanding. You can get Health/ Medical, Dental, and Vision for less than $11 a week. I think for spouse and all children it is like less than twenty dollars a week. Not to mention if you are a college student you can get tuition reinbursement of fifteen hundred dollars a year. The best part is you don't even have to be full-time to get any of those benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes they don't give promotion to people who work hard when they deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    I would review the application of people who are trying to be promoted a little better so not to discourage them.
