    I worked at Deutsche Post

    Pros

    International/global projects, highly intelligent and capably coworkers and management, strong teamwork and family culture, and a lot of exposure to upper management

    Cons

    Below average compensation and internal consulting limits the types of industries to work on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation package and better perks since IC needs to compete for talent among the bigger consulting firms

    Pros

    Deutsche Post DHL is a truly global company operating in almost every country,
    We work with colleagues of every nationality.
    Due to the size of the company, there are many internal career opportunities.

    Cons

    Many executive opportunities are located in Bonn
    Change can be slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give equal opportunities and treatment to non-German based colleagues.
    Be more dynamic in identifying and solving internal problems - you need to break an egg to make an omelet.

    Pros

    It is in Prague, nice buildings, close to underground station. Complex environment. Huge projects and large service catalog of services they provided to customers.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on interesting things that aren't 'set in stone' yet - you can bring creativity to new things! Open to new ideas.

    Cons

    History brings a bit of bureaucratic tendency.... the heart of the company is the German post office which brings a long tradition of success through time-tested efficiency... you can get a letter anywhere in Germany in a day... so this 'success' brings some inflexibility when looking at a global company. The company business divisions also have a very federated model and in some cases a bit more central direction would be helpful!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on integrating the divisions - especially opening up clearer career paths. The work going on to make this happen is incredibly important!

    I have been working at Deutsche Post

    Pros

    Location, interesting project work, work life balance, compensation, international scope, colleagues, consulting internal clients, international staff, large and relevant training opportunities

    Cons

    Difficult transition to industry jobs, compensation raises are on a less steeper slope when compared to other external consultancy firms, limited paid vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should do a better job retaining high performers and offering them an accelerated path to top positions, also vacation times are not in line with other consultancy firms.

    Cons

    Sehr "deutsche" Umgebung
    Viele ältere Angestellte, die sich nicht sehr um den Erwerb neuer Kenntnisse kümmern, aber immer noch befördert werden, da sie "alte Hasen" sind.

    very 'German' environment
    many older employees who don't care much about updating their skills but still get promoted because of 'seniority'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Junge Talente im Hause behalten! Nicht knauserig bei Lernmöglichkeiten für neu Eingestellte sein.
    In die Schulung älterer Angestellter investieren, die auf ihre Eignung für die Stellen geprüft und nicht einfach befördert werden sollten, weil sie lange in der Firma sind.
    DP-DHL-Transfers anregen und die deutsche Konzernumgebung diversifizieren

    Retain young talents! Don't be cheap on learning opportunities for new hires.
    Invest in older employees' training! they should also be reviewed on 'fit-to-position' basis and not just promoted because of years within the company
    encourage DP-DHL transfers and diversify German corporate environment

    - Hierarchie, die manchmal zu langen Entscheidungszeiten führt. Fenster der Gelegenheit könnte sich schließen, bis man eine Management-Entscheidung erhält, eine Idee zu realisieren.
    '- Eine Menge Powerpoint-Sachen zu tun, um das Mangement und interne Partner zu überzeugen.
