    I worked at FedEx as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fedex is a good workplace, pleasant, clean and very well organised. We had free coffee, coffee machine, they also used to deliver fresh fruit every week. Health insurance with Bupa was also on a plus side.

    Cons

    Too narrow minded when it came to changes. Work was monotonous, we were working almost as robots, not allowed talking much during work. No Internet use apart from during breaks. Overtime was not voluntary, we had to stay till workload was done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good management, perhaps would be better if it was sometimes a bit more open minded to changes.

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

    Pros

    FedEx cares about the employees. There are opportunities to work in various areas and bits of training to be had. Layoffs are not a part of the culture if possible.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt. Enterprise-sized bureaucracy prevails. Difficult to get newer techniques and technologies in-place. In some jobs you can feel lost as a gear in the machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Small teams. Fail fast.
