Daimler Loses the Best Employees

  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR

I have been working at Daimler Trucks North America

Pros

Great Coworkers
Product to take pride in
Health Benefits and the fact that they adjusted our salary to compensate for the increase.
Flex Time

Cons

Doesn't retain talent
Poor growth opportunity
Management is hypocritical - spends on self (iPads, catered meetings, first class) and takes from employees (company picnics, Turkey certificates, no meals during training)
Inconsistency with spending throughout the departments - some departments have team building events and others have nothing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You better make an effort to appreciate your employees, because there's always somebody out there ready to take them from you. You've taken away all the morale boosters, poor compensation, and not much room for growth. Now that the economy is picking back up, many people have their eye on the door. If you don't want to lose them - then you better start treating them right.

    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America

    Pros

    Salary and benefits were good (especially during high-profit years). Work environment was nice. Portland is a great city to work in.

    Cons

    Some management were exceptional...yet others were dysfunctional at best. Unfortunately, the dysfunctional one's are allowed to retain their positions and drive output down to a mediocre level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the few inept managers who are demoralizing and blemishing a basically-stellar workforce. Then, get these managers out and demand excellence from ALL.
