    Free coffee and hot chocolate

    Cons

    Company run from Germany. Great clients and customers, but they have run off a lot of business since acquisition. They do not understand the US market or customer and have abandoned hundreds of loyal customers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire middle mgmt that know and undertand the business and those who will stand up to Germany and think on their own.

    Cons

    Inept management, starting in germany and trickling down.

    Advice to Management

    When you buy a company dont lie to your employess that you want to keep the US domestic product
    going when in fact you did not. A 4 TO 5 YEAR LIE . Then send out a memo A WEEK before xmas (CLASIC) stating it will be over SOON " A realignment " At least your giveing these people a 2 month notice. Gentleman you could have done well if you let the Baxglobal people run the domestic instead of allowing foreign 20somethings who are completly clueless, but have a degree to run a division they are completely inept at ??.Yes it needed a few changes, this was not the way to go guys . To all dbschenker emplyees who are affected goodluck.

    Pros

    A steady paycheck, and apparently a good company to work for if you live in Europe or Canada.

    Cons

    Continued Layoffs and job insecurity. Complete shutdown of the BAX Global facility in Irvine 2010-1012, at least 600 jobs lost. Also additional 700 employees layoff at Toledo in 2011 due to shutdown of Air Freight division. Switch to Asset Less shipping company in USA.

    Advice to Management

    Management skills are outdated. Little if no IT processes in place.
