    Pros

    The company values it's employees and respects them more than UPS does.
    Solid vision and strategy for growth in the future.
    Entrepreneurial spirit, where employee recommendations are taken into account.
    Opportunities for career advancement, working in other countries, learning about global commerce.

    Some positions expect double-hatting (performing multiple roles), but I believe that is a trend in many companies these days.

    I worked at DHL Express full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Global company- Learned where I didn't want to work. Not much to say. Sad when I sit down to think about it.

    Cons

    The politics in DHL Express are down right scary. No work life balance. No tools to do your work. HR is a gossip train. Everything is not confidential. The first ones to open their mouths. Upper management is clueless, always changing policies without communicating , knows nothing about keeping complaince. EEOC needs to look into this company especially when we have government contracts. Discriminating is BIG at DHL Express. From age, nationality and disabilities. DHL Express hides behind their corporate attorneys. Mandatory overtime. It's a running joke. So glad I no longer work there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the non-performing people. Bring in some fresh set of eyes. Actually do what the company stands for and preaches.
