    I have been working at DHL Express full-time

    Pros

    Global exposure Growth opportunities Great colleagues Decent work-life balance

    Cons

    Bureaucratic Old school - minimal innovation and more reactive than proactive Poor culture is some locations Non-existent talent management

    Advice to Management

    Alignment of culture across the globe Practice the values that you preach Internal promotions should be supported by fair compensation (5% is not a good increase for a promotion). Talent management needs to be attended to

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at DHL Express full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Financially sound company, so no wages due, never; Above-average benefits when compared to average companies; Nice working partners and bosses (most of them).

      Cons

      Poor management culture promoted by some bosses (not all of them) that flirted with chronic disregard and disrespect for employees and their work-life balance; Below-average benefits when compared to other multinational companies of comparable size.

      Advice to Management

      Do not let poor management practices dwindle DHL's history.
