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

    Pros

    Integrity of executive leadership
    People Service Profit culture and respect of persons
    Some working flexibility

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance and grow, many people are frustrated. Structure internal interview process favors those who learn the process over merit and ability. Little incentive to move laterally results in in-breeding in many - not all - departments.
    Push to broaden management span has decreased management opportunities.
    Executive leadership has had a history of putting profit above people while stating the opposite. Promised bonus has not been paid at 100% for over ten years. No visibility into the bonus process despite the CFO's video communications, which only results in further questions.
    People Service Profit culture is lip service with many vps, directors, and managers.
    Remote working opportunities have been restricted.
    Many aspects of the culture and working environment are stuck in the 80s and 90s,
    Nepotism - the chairman's son started at a hard-to-get principal position and is the fastest-rising executive with apparently no competition for positions.

    Advice to Management

    Learn ways to develop and grow internal talent that don't rely on favoritism- based recommendations.
    Listen to subject matter experts in decision making and be willing acknowledge when a goal can't be met.
    Be open to change and learn from some of the start-up companies on improving working flexibility and rewards.

    I have been working at FedEx part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are super friendly.

    Benefits.

    Cons

    Pay just doesn't cut it for the amount of work you do sometimes.

    Start times are different each day.

    Advice to Management

    Add ways for managers to request certain employee's be given raises or do like other companies and make it where we can work for pay bonuses if we choose too. Like we scan 2000 or 3000 packages a day, that person should be rewarded.
