Featured Review

Former Employee - Account Executive

I worked at FedEx full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

You get an opportunity to help different business focus on what's important to them. I loved the idea that the AE was empowered to run their territory as if it was their own business. Unfortunately... this empowerment was slowly taken away.

Cons

In recent years the culture fundamentally changed in a negative way owing to a new direction taken by the leadership team.

Advice to Management

Trust your people. They care about the business too.

Current Employee - General Ledger Accountant

I have been working at UPS full-time for less than a year

Pros

Fantastic people, great atmosphere, excellent culture from top to bottom.

Cons

I have no cons to report

Advice to Management

Nothing
