    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    - Dev equipment was decent.
    - Great bonus structure for top performance.
    - It is really difficult to get fired.
    - Decent benefits.
    - Pay is on par with industry standards.
    - The campus is really nice.
    - Volunteer work for charity.

    Cons

    - It is really hard to get fired so you have to deal with dead weight. Sometimes there are "volatile" personalities who won't be fired even with workplace violence prevention in place.
    - You are in a silo so you won't have an opportunity to touch technology outside your area.
    - Your skills will also atrophy due to lack of new projects.
    - Work life balance is a joke if you want a decent APEX score.
    - Promotions are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get dead weight and "volatile" personalities under control. That was the main factor for me leaving. I walked on egg shells for fear of being physically assaulted. I did report and management did nothing.

    You need to have more work across VPs without having to change groups permanently. It would be nice to work in other areas for a while.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours with nice clean facilities.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has become the very common. Of course, this will cause the current staff to exit. Why train the outsourcing company and shadow them. Then correct their error and allow them to take credit for your work.

    Advice to Management

    Management especially mid to low level, couldn't care less what is going on.
