    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 worked at FedEx full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, training, and opportunities for career advancement

    Cons

    Hourly employees work extremely hard but are not paid wages that reflect their worth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FedEx has lost sight of its PSP philosophy over the past 10 years - the focus is on the shareholders and not employees who have and continue to make FedEx successful.
