I worked at FedEx Office full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

* nice office environment at the Galleria in Dallas
* opportunity to meet and work with a wide range of people in many different departments
* decent pay scale at least from my perspective as a salaried employee
* emphasis on balance of work and home life; offices are pretty empty by 5-5:30pm

Cons

* traffic can be a nightmare from any direction!
* promotions/advancements can seem political (more who you know than what you know)
* difficult and sometimes incompetent people are moved to other teams instead of let go
* stodgy leadership cannot wrap their collective heads around telecommuting even though certain teams have proven their ability to do this (i.e. keeping their teams up and running during a snowstorm that closed the main office); for a fairly high tech company, they are decidely behind the times in this area

Advice to Management

Embrace telecommuting - find a way to make it work instead of crowding more and more people into less and less space.

    I have been working at FedEx Office full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good if you are able to find out about them.

    Cons

    Retail environment, Retail attitude !

    Advice to Management

    It is a shame that you hire managers that are not experienced and working in a retail environment is difficult as it is but when petty non sense is a big part of the work environment, It creates a negative work environment.

    I have been working at FedEx Office full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Location(s)
    - upward mobility,
    - Managers that actually care a rarity!
    - Great friendship(s) with coworker(s) even after they are fired!
    - part of your education is paid for if it is useful to the company.
    - health insurance especially dental and vision I have been told by these businesses that i have/had
       the best insurance they have seen.

    Cons

    -Team members and Managers with better than thou complexes, not good if you work in a retail location where you can't avoid him/her.

    -the pay, you have to move up and take more responsibility if you want more pay gone are the days you can be an assistant manager and make 35k to 50K ( which included profit sharing ), which in and of itself is not bad unless your job revolves around you then management has issues.

    -( Warning ) if you are an African American male your chances of moving up will be challenging it will be easier if you have someone on your side, build strong contacts with customers and management if possible also be visible, because African american males tend to be erased sooner than later if they are stagnant on the retail level (front lines) or people have issues with them.

    Advice to Management

    You want better team members become better management don't just inspire mentor and lead by example and to team members know who you are before you get into any job you will be wasting time if the culture does not fit who you are.
