    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at FedEx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Challenging Work - Lots to do in the quest for simplification
    Diverse Organization

    Cons

    People - Service - Profit philosophy? When you have to teach people how to act something is missing.
    No work life balance
    Too many vendor resources (subject matter outsourced)
    Slow moving... tool set out dated (organization resistant to change)

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your staff - you should not have to infuse PSP. So much effort into really good programs is lost on the out source model... people should organically stand up for the right people... even if they make mistakes... something got lost along the way...

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at FedEx full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable place to work with a culture that values work life balance.

    Cons

    Just like many other large enterprises: risk averse and political for project funding or promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Be less hierarchical and find ways to invest in consistently high performers outside of quarterly or yearly awards.

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

    Pros

    benefits, hours, nice people sometimes

    Cons

    No good raises. .50 is decent. How can you see your raise when insurance goes up

    Advice to Management

    Know how to split the line between the manager & the employee. Never be buddy buddy with an employee who works for you.
