    I worked at Daimler (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money. Benefits, and Tution Reimbursement

    Cons

    The union back up the company after you have paid your dues. Pressure and extremely over worked from management that shows favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making the quota, and produce excellent products. It's about "SAFETY", and not quantity! This is why there are so many recalls.

    I worked at Daimler full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good supervision

    Cons

    Too much moving around of new hires to feel in seniority hires because of cumulative paid leave. Hard on learning quality assembly for new hires in their regular positions.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of individual seniority laborers that can lay out of work per day. It would prevent large numbers of inexperienced laborers in jobs that require quality and crucial assembly of Daimler Trucks.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good location. They'll never fire you (which is a pro unless you enjoy working with tenured incompetent people).

    Cons

    Too old school and overwhelmingly male/white.

    Advice to Management

    Step into this century.

    Pros

    International exposure, opportunity to see many of the Daimler locations worldwide. Exposure at higher levels of management. High level of autonomy with regards to scope of your individual 15-18 month CAReer program. Opportunity to learn several different fields & functions, a rare opportunity to experience various jobs in order to see what you enjoy/dislike or find a talent you didn't know you possessed/lacked. Great opportunities for networking within Daimler by meeting so many trainees from around the world.

    Cons

    High amount of travel could be inconvenient for some. Pay is not as high as at some companies, especially coming out of business school (however what you lack in pay you get in international experiences/travel & the opportunity to try multiple job functions). The position is theoretically a fast track to a management position with higher pay, if you don't make manager though your salary will remain low.

    I have been working at Daimler full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good hours, good bonus, good benefits.
    Amazing opportunities to travel and interact with people from different cultures.
    Good car perks if you are interested.
    Tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    The different entities in the U.S are separate legal entities and do not always coordinate well across all the business. Health, Bonus, vehicle program and other benefits do not transfer from entity to entity. In addition, access to to information regarding positions in other Daimler companies within the U.S is not always easily available. Considerable effort will be required on the employee to manage your movement between organization if you choose to expand your opportunities within a different Daimler company in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Top down, company should be more open to different ways of thinking.
