    Follow through with plans, even if people are as important as others.

    I have been working at FedEx Ground full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Low premiums on medical/dental/vision, 3 weeks of PTO and floating holidays, happy and friendly coworkers, different everyday, catered food for Thanksgiving/Christmas and meetings, benefits keep getting better, fairly easy job once you get the hang of it (not technical at all), pay is competitive for the responsibilities

    Cons

    Noisy/dirty environment if you work in the warehouse, very small office that you must share with the maintenance technicians. The technicians can be lewd and cuss like sailors, definitely not a normal office environment. Limited career mobility, you can go up to a Senior but it takes years and pay increments are small.
