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

    Pros

    Flexibility, benefits, work life balance, vacation days, nice corporate environment.

    Cons

    Many of the processes at Fed Ex Are complex and need to be leaned out. Getting anything approved seems to take forever. Managers still like to get involved in day-to-day work and many of them won’t allow the teams to shine, instead they want the visibility of the team success on them.

    Advice to Management

    Managers on the front line should trust their teams...Upper management needs to coach the lower managers to make sure they are performing at their optimum for an agile environment.

    I worked at FedEx full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, seasoned drivers understand new team members will require help to learn all the details to perform their duty and willingly do so no questions asked. Holiday seasons overtime is always available. Once your route becomes second nature you become immune to the demands you do your best and that’s all you can do.

    Cons

    Hitting the delivery times are difficult to sustain per the system driven requirements … real life road conditions and out dated mapping is an obstacle in itself.

    Advice to Management

    “That’s the way it is” culture driven corporation … should/must change
