    I have been working at FedEx full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Looks good on your resume, and you get a lot of experience. It's a recognized employer worldwide, so you don't have to explain where you work.

    Cons

    Most of the managers suck, and a lot of them are "task masters". Majority of the business decisions are straight out of Dilbert.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the "Work-Life Balance" policy like you're supposed to.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, decent bonus, excellent resume booster.

    Cons

    Extremely antiquated systems (I mean, they don't even teach the programming language anymore), tenure is valued over innovation, too many in leadership who refuse to retire which creates a bottleneck for younger people who want to grow with the company. There is a reason that millennials and generation X'ers are exiting the company en masse; look at the root cause and DO something to address it.

    Advice to Management

    If you are of retirement age, please retire. FedEx could be a lot more innovative and agile, if younger professionals didn't have to wade through the hierarchy and bureaucracy to get ideas vetted.

    Pros

    FedEx has an excellent culture. I could see the people service profit theme revolving around the entire workplace.

    Cons

    As an intern they were fairly helpful to me, but my project was not well defined when I came in.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have much experience with management, but I do think they handled a few confidential situations well.
