    I worked at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Boring outdated work environment. Very old school, simple minded mentality from senior management. Outdated and broken internal processes, unqualified people in very high or low positions. They lack structure and knowledge of best practices. Very redundant work and you won't learn much here or acquire any new skills.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying so much about your short term bandaid solutions just to get a bonus and start focusing on actually fixing things. Think outside the box and learn how to actually implement long term solutions that will make the company and your careers actually successful.

    I have been working at DHL Express full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The finance department is very small but very family oriented. They really believe in work life balance. They have great benefits. The company offers 401k from your very first day of employment.

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being open and allowing your employees to have their feedback heard.

    Pros

    Great people. Great comradarie. Work was interesting and challenging. Work life balance was relatively good compared to other logistics firms.

    Cons

    Firm is still trying to discover who it will be, and that permeates through the organization.

    Advice to Management

    The job is great. But the vision of the future as perceived at the front line needs to be addressed. Too much uncertainty still.
