    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture! There is a lot of focus put towards personal and professional development in DHL Supply Chain. Horizontal mobility opportunities are excellent; you could start in one department and move to another very quickly based on your career aspirations. They definitely help you get there! Great compensation and benefits, and the people who work here have a family-type feeling. Excellent work/life balance. The company is four times larger than its nearest competitor and is growing at a rapid pace.

    Cons

    It's a global company so there is always something going on; great deal of information and tasks to be achieved. Work days will always be busy, so organization and time-management are crucial.

    Advice to Management

    More team outings/bonding opportunities.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, family-oriented, and a good work/life balance for the most part.

    Cons

    The corporate office is located at Polaris, so the traffic is terrible. Communication gets convoluted in a massive company like this one.

    Pros

    Always new business opportunities becoming available. A lot of exposure to upper management. Opportunity to work with many different types of Operations.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations often due to poorly executed contracts. Upper management fails to take accountability for bad contacts, often the management team that is on site takes the fall for those decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the people accountable for signing the contact, the SVP's and the division President's. It is no secret that after a poorly written contract and a bad start-up the General Manager and Director level personnel level pay the price for all the mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Review practices; treat Employee Opinion Survey as an actual avenue for communication, rather than a global HR box to check
