Every time I see a manager these days, they look like whipped dogs. The ones I talk to indicate that it's either make your budget...or else. I recently attended a social event where there were a lot of FedEx employees, both hourlies and managers, up to and including an MD. To the person, they were disgusted in the direction the company has gone, and appalled at the level of incompetence in Memphis. This is a company where even the "leadership" is questioning MEM, and there appears to be zero confidence in upper management decisions. My guess is that a lot of managers at the station level are going home and killing-off bottle of wine, 6-pack of beer, or something stronger almost every night. My senior, who is just angry all the time, looks hung over most mornings, and often locks himself in his office for hours, supposedly on "calls". This company is in the toilet.
