I have been working at Deutsche Post full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

- Good working atmosphere
- Felxible Working Times
- Very good organized company
- Job Safety
- Good internal career opportunities
- Exciting projects combined with freedom of choice
- You can make strong international career experience / work together with people from different cultures
- Top Management is authentic and has very ambitious plans to be employer of choice.

Cons

- Hierarchy, which sometimes leads to long decision times. Window of opportunity could be closed until you get a management decisssion to realize an idea.
- A lot of powerpoint stuff to do, to convince the mangement and internal stakeholders.
- Decisions on projects are mostly figure driven only, for e.g. based on Busines Case or Market Research (strong analytical approach vs. constructive/creative/opportunity driven approach).
- Be aware of politics!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Use less powerpoint.
- Get more agile! Be more risky on your descissions to make projects a success (safety orientied vs. opportunity driven) and get a faster time to market.

    I have been working at Deutsche Post full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of types of jobs, depending on the area can also be very interesting projects. Learning curve can be accelerated depending on the area.

    Cons

    It is a very complex environment, sometimes it might be too much governance focus. Not all colleagues are at the same level, so sometimes need to cover also for the ones which are less professional. Leadership culture not well developed. Not so good management processes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To focus more on people and managing people, than managing politics. To leave aside the relation culture and to really discover the talents in the company and promote them.
