    Global network & various service offerings. Some services are better than others.

    Too many Product Managers calling on the same account thus frustrating the customer who'd prefer single-point of contact & responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Follow-up on promises with IT solutions / requirements, tracking / tracing, billing issues., etc.

    "Senior Managment really fouled this up"

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Plantation, FL

    Pros

    DHL Express has a great benefits package and at my level has a management bonus plan that really is a good incentive. Work / Life is not a problem for me - I do really like my job, and my mangement is supportive of my needs balanced against some travel and other work related needs - basically, I give my all to work and then on other occasions I step away.

    Cons

    The really senior upper managment in FL and in Bonn really did a poor job managing the US expansion and never changed course even when 2 or 3 years of doing the same thing didn' t have the desired results.

    Advice to Management

    When you plan is not working, please change your plan, don't do the same thing year after year and expect that you'll get better results.

    Pros

    great group of people and fairly good benefits. Most managers are good about being flexible with schedules.

    Lack of training and opportunities for advancement. Policies differ too much between different groups. No employee development or career paths

    Advice to Management

    improve communication between departments and groups. Offer more training opportunities and offer it to everyone.

    Pros

    Experience working for a company that is Global. Working with people in two different continents, varied cultures was a good experience.

    Cons

    Uncertainity of DHL being around - from the moment I joined DHL was starting to spiral down fast, but the management kept making changes - NDA after NDA - lots of secrecy around programs that were finally shared with all.

    Advice to Management

    Share information with rather than keep secrets changing the company as a whole impacting 1000's of lives.
