    I worked at DHL Supply Chain as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, easy to approach supervisor, who helped a lot to get access to people necessary for my project.
    Challenging project, I enjoyed every minute of it and got much freedom and responsibility to execute it. My supervisor listened to me and considered my ideas for improvements.

    Cons

    When talking about the details of the "package" on the phone, I was promised more than what was on the contract in the end.
    And when I finished my project, everyone was satisfied with my performance - still, I didn't get a fair response why they decided not to continue with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the person immediately when it becomes obvious that he / she does not fit the Leadership Team...

    Pros

    DHL Supply Chain offers good training opportunities and rapid career progression, if you can gain the support of a senior manager. It's a big company and there are lots of possibilities to move forward in your career if you're willing and able to move.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to similar roles in other companies. Work life balance is not respected and large amounts of unpaid overtime and weekend work is the norm. The organisation is highly centralised and bureaucratic and they mess up a lot of basic things - for instance payroll and issuing contracts. They have a couple of unpleasant hidden and semi-hidden policies - most of their contracts contain a standard clause allowing your manager to relocate you anywhere to do any job for any amount of time, and this is very commonly invoked. Pay rises are limited to 6% per year regardless of promotions so although your career may progress rapidly your pay will not progress alongside it - and this policy is not discussed with you until the first promotion. Finally the management is not always particularly great and it is quite common for a career to end because a manager above you takes a dislike to you - this didn't happen to me but I saw it several times in my two years in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please increase pay and reduce the amount of overtime demanded of staff or at least pay for it.

    Pros

    Good direction from top management, Selects customers well validating profit v/s effort very carefully. Opportunities to work in varied sectors and be a part of latest industry initiatives.

    Constant networking, knowing which projects have budgets, and which dept leads can come through management reshuffles is vital. Strategic changes may render recent personal or department contributions irrelevant.

    I worked at DHL Supply Chain part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Had worked in a new building.
    fast-paced emvironment; A lot of work was rushed, and crammed onto the teams.

    Cons

    Sub par working environment, albeit considering it was a new building. A lot of work was rushed, and crammed onto the teams, as the objective was hurried onto an unfinished, imcomplete environment. Unsure about other locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safety and security over speed, don't rush a new place.
