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

Pros

i had freedom. Not in a sense that i can do whatever i wanted, but the fact that i was told what needed to be done and my supervisor did not hound me throughout the day. i felt trusted and reliable, instead of feeling incompetent.

Cons

There is very little for promotions.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring temp employees and hire directly to the company.

    I worked at FedEx as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A bit more relaxed work environment when compared to financial institution

    Cons

    They treat consultants like a piece of shiz. Due to their stupid data security rules, remote access is banned which makes it tough to handle night time prod tickets if you have to be in office in person at 1 AM midnight.
    They have the best IT tools, but don't really know/have the talent to use it upto even a 10%. They hire a lot of consultants with a fixed 11 month term and when these consultants leave, there is enough brain drain to destroy some key knowledge base. There is hatred and repulsion towards consultants and they are always thought of by FT employees as those who are just destroying their beautifully built mansion (code) and treat consultants like outsiders in all aspects. If they don't like any consultant ( or if there is a Budget cut) they come up with excuses all of a sudden to show that a Consultants quality of work is not good and will be let go without even a day's notice. Very ruthless and disrespectful treatment of consultants.

    Advice to Management

    Consultants are NOT aliens who join your company to destroy your beautiful world! Give the professionals the respect that they at-least deserve! At the very least have some visibility in terms of technical issues faced due to restriction of accesses to systems and data. You cannot expect competent work quality if you are not giving proper facilities and accesses.

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

    Pros

    Pay, job security, pride of working for FedEx.

    Cons

    Working in a cubicle farm is very irrating because of the noise level of others conversations. No one seems to care that you have work to do and need to concentrate. They talk loud as if no one else is around.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints here.
