    I worked at FedEx as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Global company, good benefits and better-than-average pay in Memphis

    Cons

    Leadership is still based on managers being friends of directors, etc. I worked three contracts there. One manager was very professional and followed company rules with regard to contract help. One manager was absent part of every day due to a real family concern, and one manager was the least professional and abusive managers I have ever experienced anywhere. If you're looking to contract there, find out how much turnover there has been in that department and in that position.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep managers according to merit and adherence to company value statement. If a manager will not comply, s/he needs to be cut loose because s/he is a danger to the company. Right to work only goes so far. Eventually abuse will cost the company figuratively and literally.

    Pros

    The company is respected in the industry and the world. Good benefits and culture.

    Cons

    It's a very large company. To progress, relationships matter. Under the FedEx umbrella are various operating companies with different policies and procedures that may be confusing for new employees and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be deliberate and intentional about improving diversity (race and gender) in leadership at all operating companies.
