    I have been working at De Lage Landen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and work life balance

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement for minorities
    Extremely Prejudice
    Amateurish management
    Highly micromanaged
    Management CLEARLY shows favoritism
    No advancement for seasoned employeed who are maxed out of their salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Extremely PREJUDICE. ALL of management upper & lower needs managerial training quarterly. They do not know how to professionally manage a staff. They do not know how to speak to their staff without using profanity or trying to be little. Management needs to be fair to all employees and stop showing favoritism to family members, significant others, and friends within the company. Management needs to start promoting and grooming minorities for advancement.

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits. 4 week vacation to start. Sabbatical after 7 years. Onsite gym, cafe, store, ATM.

    Cons

    Recent restructuring of company has lowered morale of company as a whole. Less emphasis on members and more on bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on members needs and stress levels. Many members are overwhelmed.

    DLL lacks a clear strategic vision...decentralized business lacks coordination...not positioned for LT growth

    Former Employee - Corporate in Wayne, PA
    Former Employee - Corporate in Wayne, PA

    I worked at De Lage Landen full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employee benefits and amenities are a recognized positive. Rabobank offers strong financial backing and significant global footprint to DLL.

    Cons

    Decentralized business structure leads to uncoordinated ability to successfully execute in the most advantageous manner across global world. This unsynchronized ability impacts client relationships that greatly depend upon DLL to be a strong financial partner in international markets. Cost structures are out of balance with margin generation as witnessed by continual ongoing 'cost improvement' initiatives. Business development has not even adopted a global CRM centralized platform to coordinate international business activities...years behind the competition! Majority of business is too AGRI and leasing solution focused lending with all other product segments far less significant due to Rabobank's highly restrictive AGRI mandate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new thinking and new blood to the organization to make progressive global change. Too many 'old timers' who continually do things the 'old fashioned way' that are just biding their time till retirement. Develop the courage to think outside of the box, leverage the voice of the customer and offer more contemporary sales financing solutions to reinvent DLL. Ex-CEO Slaats was somewhat of a rebel who had the ability to reach for success given significant internal limitations...regrettable Rabobank did not fully empower their own to take DLL to the next level. Rabobank now needs an outsider to shake things up and turn around this Dutch Aircraft Carrier.
