    A fairly good experience, but the company must work on the employee development

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is facing a huge infrastructure change that will open new career options. If the change is lead correctly it can potentially boost the company's market share.

    ConsThe company is facing a huge infrastructure change that causes uncertainty. Not a strong local management as opposed to very strong global management. This causes some business decision to be questionable and risky. It also causes the company longer and more complicated bureaucracy.

    Be careful, be warned!!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat, hard-working operations and support staff, good benefits

    ConsHave young Sr. Managers with little industry experience making hiring/firing decisions. They are not concerned with long term, steady growth, but want immediate results in order to make themselves exclusively look good and move up the ladder. No real concerned with employee or account development, but their own credibility and reputation. A lot of paranoia. Offices in Chicago and JFK are almost empty..... Not a team atmosphere at all!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible company to work for, exploitative with total disdain for employees

    Senior Executive (Former Employee)

    Prosindustry leader, typical benefits but i struggle to come up with the 20 word minimum for pros

    Consexploitative, demeaning to employees, non existent management confused about their own strategy as an employer DHL Global Forwarding is a bully

    Advice to Senior ManagementFreight Forwarding is a highly technical field you need to value your employees and stop paying lip service to your so called "values"

    Great global experience with a company that has a lot to offer its customers.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe ability to offer great services to your customers while engaging in global commerce.

    ConsOutdated systems that limited the companies potential to be a leader in any sector it served.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your people. Make First Choice more then a sales pitch to your customers, but rather a strategy to empower the organization by providing the right mindset and training for each member to contribute to the success of the company.

    Stagnant environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Franklin Park, IL

    ProsFew pros to working for this company. Sheer size is what is keeping it going at this point. Management is working on improvements, but seem disconnected from the workforce.

    ConsPay does not reflect the level of talent and commitment the company expects. Very political environment. Rank and file have not bought into current transformation being executed. No security for any position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give the same speech to your employees that you give to the market, be real. You can't achieve all your plans without the support of employees. And you won't get that until demonstrate to them what their future is.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
