    I have been working at DFDS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Your ideas is always welcome. The no blame culture is rooted in top management. You can evolve and move around in the company. It is a fantastic workplace if you are not easily stressed. The key motivator is the shared goal from top to bottom that customers comes first.

    Cons

    It is a little tough for people who dislikes changes. Many employees work from time to time long hours, but to be fair, you are always being taking care of, if you are thrown a curve ball in your private life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep improving work processes and customer focus. Maybe make a small bonus program for all employees, not much but let for instance the Christmas gift be followed by a small check of 100-200$ and an explanation why this was achieved.

    Pros

    No blame culture, most people try to get the best results for the business. Fairly good benefits. Nice offices.

    Cons

    Very frustrating to observe repeated customer complaints about the same issues without proper resolution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make internal teams accountable for customer satisfaction results... performance related pay would certainly help increase standards.

    I worked at DFDS

    Pros

    The company offers great opportunities to grow. It's owned by Maersk, one of the biggest companies in the world. Good sallary

    Cons

    The company wasn't that agile. It's quite slowmoving and it's future isn't that solid. What will happen? No one knows...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not change management that often. The company needs some stable ground. It has the potential but we will see.

    I have been working at DFDS

    Pros

    People are very nice they spend a lot of time working together to figure out what is wrong with the problem

    Cons

    The workload is very heavy and under intensive pressure and the expectations of the clients are changing all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is more important about how the managers impress the team by his own behaviours not just how to assign work.
