Why it's admiredThe package delivery giant, considered a barometer of the economy, weathered a tough year. High gas prices and the recession took a toll and more than 1,400 layoffs were announced. To keep costs under control and help save jobs, the Memphis-based company also eliminated employees' 401(K) plan matches for 2009 and cut pay 5% across the board. CEO Fred Smith sliced his own base pay 20%. No wonder FedEx also made Fortune's Best Companies to Work For list this year. -A.A.
