I have been working at Daimler Trucks North America

Pros

There aren't many manufacturing companies left in Portland, but this one seems to be going strong. The pay is decent. There are some good people doing good work here.

Cons

Upper management is staid and does not welcome change or dynamic approaches to business solutions. Many people have simply been there too long and are resting on their laurels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shake it up.

    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits package and pay rate is in line with industry standard.

    Cons

    I've only worked here a brief amount of time, but I'm finding that the employee's are not very friendly. I consistantly smile at everyone I pass, no one ever smiles back. In the break room no one wants to be bothered and will actually glare at you. The only place that I find friendly people are in the bathroom. WHich is just kind of creepy. I'm not sure if everyone just hates their jobs, or if they don't like new people, if they don't want to socialize with people outside of their department or if there is some other reason.
    I came from a company owned and run by east Indian gentlemen so I was happy to see a group of Indian-seeming gentlemen in the break room. On several occasions I've said hi and smiled at them. They will not even say hi to me.
    In my collaboration with people in a professional environment here, people will only help you if it directly benefits them. This is not a collaborative environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to eliminate the huge corporate feeling.
