    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Worked as an IT contractor for DTNA over the past two years at the Montgomery Park office. Environment is a cube farm with a great atrium outside of the offices. Many good, hard-working people. Decent work/life balance. Awesome ergonomic chairs provided. Company shuts down the week of Christmas. Good solid salary (via my agency). Dress is office casual (jeans, button-down shirts ok).

    Cons

    Employees often have to struggle against a top-down management structure from Germany. Management has to patch together local solutions for mandates sent from overseas HQ. Little motivation to push the boundaries - as top level roadblocks abound. Technology is lagging in places - or is awkwardly implemented. Company requires that you quit your contracting position in order to apply for FTE work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local managers should be allowed more input into the initiatives that effect stateside operations. More work-from-home opportunities would make sense.
