    Pros

    Good pay and benefits prior to FedEx taking over. Not sure what direction the company will head as FedEx. Herb Shear and Jim Polacheck took care of their people.

    Cons

    Too many CSVP's are clueless. FedEx seems to be culling some of these lackluster middle managers out. Also, project managers are simply there to keep their jobs, not help local operations.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your local management.

    Reasonable pay, good benifits, FedEx bought them out, hopefully this will change the management structure for a proactive type of work environment.

    The Peter principal, exploiting lower management, reactive instead of proactive.

    Management varies depending on department. Customer Care management lacks sense of time management and prioritizing.

    Advice to Management

    management sucks because they do not take in account the problems workers complain about. Maybe they should learn to manage.
