    I have been working at DHL Supply Chain full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    DHL offers a lot of opportunities and a very supportive framework from the upper management for anyone to prosper. It is one of the largest companies in the world and so smaller regional teams tend to form tight-knit relations to work together and flourish. We do frequent potlucks, host once a month employee appreciation day when we get to eat cakes and ice creams. We host carnival themed games, go out to lunch with various teams, participate in biking, running and walking competitions. We host international food festival. We raise money for charities by doing various fun activities. Management allows flexible work hours. Senior management really cares about retaining talents, they research, regularly discuss about how to make the work environment better, how to grow talents internally, who we can promote, who can/would succeed who and adjust salaries, if needed. CEOs, CIOs and VPs are very approachable and down-to-earth. They will smile, say hi to you and talk. We interact with our coworkers from various regions and learn about their cultures and their ways of doing things. Some of them can be very educational and interesting. Cubes are bigger than all the places I have worked at. We have foosball, pool table and putt putt.

    Cons

    It is a HUGE global company. Some areas are very process oriented and can take time to execute smaller tasks but those are also opportunities for us to improve. Sometimes, it takes a while to find out who owns what.

    Advice to Management

    We love the culture of innovation we have been seeing in the last 3/4 year. Please continue to foster that culture.

    I have been working at DHL Supply Chain full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth, they truly do give you a lot of opportunity and if you do not want to stay in operations than you really don't have to.

    Cons

    The pay is honestly average at best. Depending on volume, you can work 60 hours a week and still have the same paycheck since you are salary. Not much of work-life balance but great for someone out of college.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people have a day off
