    Company losing direction in a mature market and facing focused competition

    Pros

    Not a terribly IQ required to figure out how to be there waiting when senior management arrives at the obvious conclusion on direction. Right place, right time means you can get large bar bills picked up by others. Good place to build early logistics experience for use elsewhere.

    Cons

    Company tends to talk thru it's hat on advancement and direction. Career paths or development simply do not exist. In a tough market with very focused competition with clear strategies DHL attempts to be all things to all people. That results in a bloated structure at all levels and multiple leadership points pulling in different directions. The follow on is that the company knows no otehr way to increase margins than to decrease employee net compensation over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As there is little product differentiation in express anymore the only remaining differentiator is staff. Talking up employee participation while firing, outsourcing and cutting salaries at the same time as holding massive conferences in India, Germany and the US covers the SMT in something less than sainthood. Wildly varying travel policies don't help. Next time you think about layoffs try impressing people with stepping up and actually sharing pain. Give up the car. Remove a percentage of your pay. Forgo raises for a couple years. You'd be surprised how people react.

    I have been working at DHL Express

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is something that is considered very seriously and family doesnt take a second place to work related duties.

    Cons

    The career path structure and methodology followed with the company isnt clear and there is no true caoching or even opportunities to move within or outside of the department the person works in.
    High amount of management layer and not enough resources available to actually do the job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A restructuring effort must always be kept in perspective and even though there have been significant strides to cut bureaucracy and management tiers and make the company more horizontal. There is still much work to be done as there is still a significant amount of upper management and resources tied to pay for them as opposed to focus on reources that could be performing the work.
