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

Pros

One gets to work for one of the 3 major transportation majors in the world
Get to establish a good work-life balance
One of the largest IT spenders in the world

Cons

Projects generally takes a long time to implement (think multiple years!)
Not a nimble and agile company in terms of getting things done...if your looking to achieve a lot, this is not a place for you
So conservative in approach (from a legal standpoint), it actually hurts business

Advice to Management

Get innovative and break down red-tape barriers to achieve more in an acceptable timeframe

    I worked at FedEx full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Has some of the smartest people I've ever met working there. Large IT campus in Memphis has walking trails, a nice cafeteria, wooded grounds, secure parking.

    Cons

    They drive the better people so hard that all but the most masochistic leave. Many that work there do the bare minimum to keep their jobs. Management is more political than Washington. Projects are a morass of constrictive processes involving lots of departments and meddling, yet you are expected to deliver big.

    Advice to Management

    You are great at delivering packages on time in great shape. Put some continuous improvement into place in IT and maybe you'll get great at that as well.
