Pros

The benefits are good, the friendships are okay. Many good people have left after the lame salary decrease in January.

Cons

management at the top has no respect for this channel, the change in pay has hurt all employees. behind the scenes money games played with commissions/bonuses. not really a sales job as you have to do the job for billing, collections and lose most bigger sales to other divisions without compensation. No respect for the amount of work done. Our base pay was reduced by almost $10k without any input and in its place a commission structure that rewards the same few people over and over while the rest of us that are tenured employees struggle to make ends meet. The salary decrease really destroyed morale and continues to eat away everyday at the sales people who are treated like crap by upper management beyond the channel. No matter how much The Director tries to make condition better, he has no power as upper management treats him like crap too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It doesn't matter as they don't listen. Management makes it quite clear that is you do not like being told what to do start your own company.

    Pros

    They paid us really well, gave us free cell phones and great bonuses. It was neat to work on projects with people all over the world.

    Cons

    They ended up laying off 80% of the Scottsdale IT Data Centre staff over a six month period when the company decided to pull out of the US Express (US to US location delivery) market, bowing out to UPS and Fedex. I can't imagine DHL Express Americas exists today in anywhere close to the presence they used to have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for the good times and great experience. I did find there was a bit of a good-old-boy system in place in terms of who got promoted, laid off, etc.
