Pros

FedEx provides job security and good benefits to its employees and the majority of its managers encourage maintaining a good work/life balance. FedEx is excellent at providing its people with all of the tools necessary to do their jobs and for the most part, still operates by its People, Service, Profit model.

Cons

Excessive administrative requirements; Products/services offered have become a commodity

Advice to Management

Stop being so concerned with checking off all the boxes and creating more administrative work for your people. Trust that they'll do their jobs without being babysat. Also realize that FedEx is no longer the only game in town -- transportation has become a commodity.

    Pros

    Excellent promotion opportunities. FedEx definately promotes from within. They attempt to make work life balance a non issue in their culture. The salary range at FedEx is very broad and movement within the ranges is easily accomplished. You are rewarded for doing a good job in most areas of the company. The benefits of this company are great. The comprehensive medical and dental insurance are some of the best I have had in my career. There are many, many discounts and fun things to do at the company...discounted shipping is a bonus. The 401(k) is good and there is still a pension, so retirement savings are above average.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and sometimes it requires a lot of hours to accomplish that work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work....but take a stand.

    Pros

    For me, FedEx has been a fantastic company to work for. I've been with FedEx for 2.5 years after running my own business and have really enjoyed the structure, pay, benefits and attitude with regard to work/life balance. It has been a great move.

    Cons

    FedEx is a very large corporation and you do run into bureaucray in your day to day work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce bureaucracy. Also, this may be a strange comment from a non-manager, but in some cases FedEx's culture of consensus building can reduce speed in execution. More decisiveness at the executive level on projects may lead to improved execution.
