    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Daimler offered excellent benefits definitely above average. I worked with some excellent people and although there were not many opportunities to advance if willing you could

    Cons

    Not many cons here. If any it was more about standardization for the sake of standardizing without using the best data to actually make the best choices.

    Advice to Management

    The company has been making some fantastic strides in improving and trying to make it a place you want to work at. I was already happy and the company continued to make things better for employees. Get rid of the stereotypes that one facility is "bad". Go Look and See and spend some time in places and you'll find that there are/were some really great people doing some really great things and really care about the... company.

    I have been working at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good vacation policy - 4 weeks awarded from day 1.

    Cons

    Deeply hierarchical culture, definite glass ceiling for women and non-Germans, bogged down by process. Decisions take forever to be implemented, even after the long torturous process of arriving at that decision

    Advice to Management

    stop implementing policies that drive away talent

    Great benefits package top to bottom. Pay well above average. Most of the employees want to do good work and continue to improve.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Daimler Trucks North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Above average salary and great benefits. Family type atmosphere. Open door policy that allows direct access to all levels of management to express any problems or concerns. Management listens and adjusts accordingly.

    Cons

    Does not promote within often enough. It appears the company would rather hire someone from outside, with no knowledge, rather than hire the knowledgeable people from within.

    Advice to Management

    Promote within more and show more loyalty to those who have worked their way up.

    Pros

    You get a good deal on a Mercedes Benz lease.

    Cons

    Public beat downs in meetings on production floor that hourly employees can hear, constant equipment break downs, poor planning for launches, oh did I mention very long hours like 12+ a day and often weekends. You will not have a life away from work.
