  1. FedEx Earns #10 Spot on FORTUNE’s World’s Most Admired Companies List
  2. "FedEx inspires its more than 300,000 team members to remain "absolutely, positively" focused on safety, the highest ethical and professional standards and the needs of their customers and communities"

    Because we aren't afraid of hard work. We also just get it done regardless of the Challenge, day after day, without complaining excessively. Well 99% of us anyway.... The 99% that are making it one of the most admired companies, along with the 1% that did at one point.

    You really need to layoff the kool aid man. It's damaging your brain.

    How do you breathe when you are that far up Fred's ass?

    It's a survey of corporate execs of various companies, not the employees of a specific company. Of course other execs think FedEx is terrific. They wish they could get away with half the things FedEx does to it's employees.

    I can see this...Fortunes magazine is for Wall street mouth breathers, and they like the fact that FedEx has hired a lot of dirt bags to drive their trucks at a low wage, they also like to see that Express is cutting back by regularly screwing it's front line employees out of benefits and pay raises...Fred says we gotta keep that stock price high!

    When you are a fellow robber baron, what's not to admire? You have your employees over a barrel and you are making more money then you ever have.

    Just like I admire Ferrari's and Lamborghini's but get close enough and realize that they are extremely high maintenance, and cost a fortune to keep.

    Exactly. At FedEx, the Ferraris and Lamborghinis occupy expensive, lavishly-appointed offices. Occasionally, they go fast and look good, but most of the time they sit in the shop doing nothing but costing big money. I say we ditch the fancy "cars" and obtain sensible, efficient leadership that makes economic sense.

    For one MT3 or Bronczek, we could get literally dozens of talented executives that actually know what they're doing.
